Ronald Reagan’s daughter Patti Davis recently released a lesbian novel.
The author published the love story Till Human Voices Wake Us as an e-book. Although Davis wanted her publisher to release the novel in print, the tale is only available in electronic form.
“Maybe this non-autobiographical novel was too much of a departure for publishers to wrap their heads around,” Reagan’s daughter said of the lesbian love story. “Most writers have books they have labored over for years and long to put out into the world. ‘Till Human Voices Wake Us’ is one of those books.”
The novel tells the story of a mother who slowly develops a romantic relationship with her sister-in-law.
This isn’t the first time Patti Davis and written a book. She previously penned a tome about her parents Ronald and Nancy Reagan. The author also appeared on the cover of Playboy back in 1994. She also released a tie-in video with the magazine.
Although Davis has previously penned books that were based on her life, she insists that Till Human Voices Wake Usisn’t based on personal experience. She also stressed that she wasn’t interested in writing something along the lines of Fifty Shades of Grey.
“It’s a love story,” Davis said of her novel. The author added that readers shouldn’t expect any graphic sex scenes during the story.
The 60-year-old writer has previously penned eight books. Although her other efforts found homes at traditional publishing houses, Davis said she was “excited” to venture into the world of self-publishing. The book is currently available on Amazon for $2.99.
Her other literary efforts include Angels Don’t Die: My Father’s Gift of Faith, Bondage, and A House of Secrets. Her last novel Two Cats and the Woman They Own was published in 2006.
The author also said that her decision to release a lesbian love story doesn’t mean that she is gay. Many outlets have speculated that Davis’ book was an autobiographical confession.
