A six-part serial, “A Life Singular” tells the story of a successful celebrity writing his autobiography after the tragic loss of his wife. In essence a love story, the central themes of the “A Life Singular” serial are triumph over mental illness, the choices we make between right and wrong, the relentless passage of time and how each affects the other.

Part Three continues the journey:

Fame and fortune beckoned. Jeff Diamond was a success, whatever that meant Fans followed him everywhere, reporters and photographers hid around every corner and journalists recorded his many indiscretions. A whole different world to the downtrodden streets of Sydney s south-west, where vices were satisfied by using people to one s best advantage.

The star had more money than he could spend, his opinion suddenly counted, and the opportunities to feed his ever-hungry mind were plentiful. Yet the demons continued to torment him, no longer protected by the guardian angel who had been spirited away as soon as her family found out who Jeff Diamond was and where he had come from.

Suddenly the ambitious businessman and philanthropist found himself in the fight of his life. He would win Lynn s heart by showing her father he was worthy, and by convincing his dream girl that they had something worth fighting for. Would she risk throwing her privileged lifestyle away for a man whose public persona depended on alcohol, drugs and a string of pretty girls?

Jeff had nothing to lose. The trappings of his new life held little significance until the soul-mates were reunited. This was where their life singular really began. Up until this point, there had only been playtime. Now they must step up and take responsibility. It was up to them.

She subsequently gives birth to a son, Joss. Joss and Edwin also tell their stories16 years later.

When Beth gets the chance to escape, the Press get hold of the story and Beth and Amy have their photo in the newspaper. The photo is seen by Liam, who has made another life for himself back in his homeland of Canada with his new partner Patty and their son Toby, thinking Beth had been murdered years before. Liam must make the difficult choice of either meeting up with Beth again and getting to know his daughter, or staying where he is in Toronto.

The story then runs ahead 16 years to the point where Joss finds out who his real father is, now a patient in a secure mental hospital. Joss wants to get to know him, and makes a journey against his mother s wishes to see his real father. However, the much-anticipated meeting does not go quite to plan; Edwin still seems obsessed with Beth, and Joss feels unloved and unwanted. He makes the mistake of telling Edwin where the family are living, and when Edwin is eventually released he comes looking to claim Beth back again. The upset this visit causes to the family teaches Joss just who does love him, and whom he ought to consider as his actual real father.

Everything was running fairly normal the day that Theadora left Santa Fe for a one week visit to her sister in Albuquerque.

First, there was a missing person. Then, a kidnapping and a murder, followed by even more mysterious events! All of this happening to a family with a long and intriguing story of their own, going far back into New Mexico’s history. The women in the family pass down the special knowledge of the old ways that give them the ability to see and know more than the others. The powerful family matron, Theadora, is the one who possesses this knowledge now. It has helped her direct her energies towards creating a stronger family and face many challenges. In the mix of other relatives are the others of the older generation with all their history and secrets. The second generation, some single, some with partners, are dealing with trying to keep old traditions alive while changing their roles, faced with the new realities and opportunities of modern life. The third generation includes a mathematical genius with his own hidden knowledge. Once you start reading, these stories will unfold and you will agree it was indeed “One Calamitous Spring”.

Magical Historical Fiction Novel – The Life, Death and Resurrection of Vanora Brice

The Life, Death and Resurrection of Vanora BriceThe Life Death and Resurrection of Vanora Brice
by Gordon Rice
Publisher: Outskirts Press
ISBN: 978-1432797041
Published: March 2013
Pages: 246
Genre: Magic Historical fiction
Format Available For Review: Print

For anyone who has wanted to stop time – and, as the author says, not needed marijuana to do so – The Life of Vanora Brice is the book for them. It is the first book of a trilogy called The Life, Death and Resurrection of Vanora Brice and is the three generational saga of the Brice Family covering from the 1800’s to the present time.

The intent of the author is to manipulate time in all its aspects so that the reader ends up with the sense that there’s no past, present or future and that time has stopped. He achieves this writing with an elegant prose full of images, like a movie passing through the reader’s mind, and the magic realism mixes with the true historical elements to make the book easy to read. One can read it starting from the beginning or starting from the end or the middle or starting from any memory and the result every time will be the experience of a different emotional context overall.
