The fresh and enthralling debut novella AFTER THE AFFAIR explores the aftermath of a marriage's destruction by infidelity from the perspective of the wife, the mistress, and the husband. Now available for pre-order on Amazon, it takes the reader into the landscape of modern relationships. Local author Anne Marie Wylder's characters cross race and socioeconomic lines with their flirtations, friendships, and romances but still struggle with gender inequality.

'Sara Decker,' AFTER THE AFFAIR's central character thinks that she has the perfect life until she surprises her husband in bed with their daughter's nanny. Her privileged position in society as a White upper- middle-class wife unravels as a consequence of being an unapologetic high-powered executive that has always striven for success. It is only on remote Whidbey Island that she finds self-discovery and the love of two men: rugged fisherman Tom Sawyer and urban millennial Christian Hansen. For the first time in her life, Sara has the courage to throw out convention and embrace love on her own terms.

'Maria Rodriguez' is the 26-year-old Latina nanny who is catapulted from the role of servant to that of a suburban stepmother, in the Decker household. Her once clandestine relationship with Richard is now fraught with arguments. Richard fights to fit Maria into his notion of a perfect wife. In the end, she will make the ultimate sacrifice so she can hold on to her newfound status in society.
