Penelope’s Odyssey
by Tina Nicodemo

Penelope’s big-city dreams aren’t turning out exactly as she planned. When she moved away from her family and their small business, she envisioned a life creating fantastical events and taking advantage of all the things New York has to offer. She certainly didn’t see herself making collection calls and being yelled at all day, but she has to do something to pay the rent. She has one good friend at the office, Stella, and they come to the realization that in order for them to make their fantasies a reality, they must take their futures into their own hands. They make a pact that they will get out of this dead-end job and finally strike out to their desired careers. On that same day, Penny has a chance encounter with a kind man and woman on the subway—a couple she has admired on her daily, monotonous commute because they express so much love and affection for one another. She chases after them when they leave an item on the subway car, and in return, they invite her for dinner, which turns into offers of so much more. A career, a chance at love, and an opportunity to show her true self to the world. But is Penny brave enough to step out of the darkness and into the light?

Debut author Tina Nicodemo has had a lifelong love of reading and writing. Penelope’s Odyssey combines her fascination with Greek mythology, romantic comedies, storytelling, and her passion for purpose-driven event design. In addition to writing, Tina enjoys art in all its forms, travelling, good food, and spending time in nature. Born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, she and her husband moved to Ottawa, Ontario, to raise their family. Her dog, Georgia, is a ten-year-old Bernedoodle, who has taught Tina how to find balance and reminds her to take time for simple pleasures.
