Dennis and Greer is a nonfiction love story in letters and journals between 2 college students during the Vietnam era. (This is nonfiction that reads like fiction)

A true story that encapsulates the horrors of war and the innocence of young love.

Buried in a trunk for fifty years, this long-forgotten tale, told through letters and journals from the war-torn Vietnam era, has been resurrected.

College students, Dennis and Greer, met and felt a spark just before moving to different states. Their witty correspondence through letters conjured a desire to meet again, but Dennis tried to keep his distance; duty is more important than love.

As the two embarked on their journey into adulthood and navigated their relationship against the backdrop of war, they were writing a love story that will span the test of time.

Interview with Molly Gould

What inspired you to write Dennis and Greer?
I inherited a treasure of vintage letters and journals from the 1960s and knew I had to share the love story found within those writings.

Can you tell us a little bit about  what you have planned for the future?

Right now I am working on another collection of letters and journals from the 1800s that tells the love story of a rough cowboy and a sassy girl that sings and plays guitar.

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Dennis and Greer?

Dennis King looks like a typical all-American boy as he works construction and coaches football to pay for college. Beneath the surface, he is a genius poet that is torn between his love for Greer and his sense of duty to God and country.

Greer DeWitt is a practical, pessimistic, head-strong college girl that works as a secretary in San Francisco. She’s never met a boy like Dennis King and she just can’t stop thinking about him—too bad he lives hundreds of miles away.

You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?
Charlotte Bronte, because she writes beautifully and has a way of capturing the human spirit that few can.

If you could time-travel would you travel to the future or the past? Where would you like to go and why would you like to visit this particular time period?
The past. I would love to travel to the 1900s, when so many advances in technology were coming to fruition. What an exciting time!

Do you have any little fuzzy friends? Like a dog or a cat? Or any pets?
My family has 1 dog, 1 cat, 2 fish, and 1 hamster (I just kind of tolerate them).

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to visit with us today.

About the Author

ASU graduate, Molly Gould, lived in the wilderness for 28 days when she was 16 years old (she’s your go-to-girl in the zombie apocalypse). She now confines herself indoors with the AC full-blast in her sunny sate of AZ. Occasionally, she’ll brave the scorching heat with her husband and four children.

When Molly inherited a treasure of vintage journals and letters, she was swept away by the love story contained within those writings. She couldn’t keep Dennis and Greer to herself, so she began transcribing and Dennis and Greer was born.
