About-

In Dialogues with Jen: On Issues of Daily Living, five friends, representing three generations, get together to discuss contemporary topics that touch their lives. The six dialogues unfold dramatically, reflecting situations of the participants, who share personal insights, sometimes surprisingly.

Jen, the senior member, suggests the lead topic of romantic love, and the discussion moves from carnal attraction to conscious, purposeful love, citing Shakespeare’s “marriage of two minds.” Events of the tragic death of one member’s sister and a terrorist attack witnessed by another member lead them to consider guilt, justice, and forgiveness.

The dialogues are deeply rooted in spirituality, while not specific to any particular religious tradition.

The author loosely draws on the classic Dialogues of Plato to develop arguments through the exchange of ideas of his fictional characters. This book is a sequel to Dialogues with Jay: On Life and Afterlife, but can be read independently.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Don Fletcher invites us into a conversation on the big questions of life: relationships, consciousness, faith, death—above all, love. This brief book is a wise guide and a safe space in which to have the conversation. Dialogues with Jen would be a helpful resource for a small group to begin their own conversation.”

—Gregory C. Faulkner, Senior Pastor/Head of Staff, Trinity Presbyterian Church, Cherry Hill, NJ



“For only love, the more you try to give it away, comes back in ever increasing amounts.”

—Jeanette Axelrod, Coordinator, Current Affairs Forum, Lions Gate CCRC, Voorhees, NJ
