The Glorious Between is a feel-good novel and primarily a love story. Influences include Oliver Sacks (Neurology), Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Mark Helprin (Magical Realism), Michael Ondaatje (Prose), Oliver Sacks, Kahlil Gibran, and Mary Alice Marsh for the philosophical direction.

Emily is dying. It is that thing in her head. Worse, she cannot remember her past, and can retain only fragments of the present. It feels as if she has never existed.

She is tucked up tight, holding her breath, suspended in time.

“I am not my body,” she often says, meaning she feels as if she is more than that; that we are more than just flesh and bone. But she knows, too, that reality has an awkward way of intruding into what one might hope for, and that her impending death is inevitable. In the end, she is her body and a broken one at that. It is just the way it is.

Or is it?

Enter Alessandra. Enter Patrick. Patrick, a world class neurologist and Emily’s lov-er. Alessandra, who can speak to the river, summon the sun, and redirect the moon with the tips of her fingers.

“This is not a normal book with a normal story…”

It is the story of a lonely white dolphin, and a tree, curiously shaped like a guitar with too many strings. Of an outcast singer, a honeybee and other strange misfits who help a young boy bring long-awaited rain to seven precious gifts, that have lain dormant for aeons in the parched body of the Earth. The rain awakens the gifts; and the gifts awaken the boy. And the boy awakens the Earth.

Literary Coming of Age – Roya

RoyaRoya
By Elnaz Moghangard
Published: Janaury 2020
ISBN: 978-1657151741
ASIN: B083ZTVGS7
Genre: Literary Fiction, Coming of Age
Formats Available For Review: Print (limited quantities, only available to qualified reviewers / bloggers in the U.S.), and kindle

“Put your past in a casket, and its ghost will show up at your door. Burn it on a pyre, and its ashes will get in your eyes. But, if you entertain them from time-to-time, you realize they are no longer anything but the residual imaginings of the human mind.”

Roya tells the story of a 22-year-old Iranian-American woman confronting the shadows of her past in search of lion-hearted strength. Pressured to trade her dream of becoming a composer for medical school, she is at odds with her immigrant parents. A heartbreak over her first love has left her further feeling like an expat in her own body.

Upon her grandmother’s request, she embarks on a reluctant journey to Iran. There, she finds a country with its own torn identity –one caught between tradition and modernity. A quiet, yet pressing craving for freedom exists mirroring Roya’s own inner battle.

With the help of some unlikely friends, she finds truth in the unraveling of family secrets and a new dawn for dreams.

The desert southwest can be an unforgiving place – thirsty and rugged, razor-sharp and venomous. But when funeral director Hope Moret moves from Pennsylvania, fleeing a painful past, she seeks solace in the temperamental land and the mysterious Night-Blooming Cereus that becomes the heart of her nursery. When she is diagnosed with a terminal neurodegenerative disorder years later, at 38, she realizes she must find herself … before she loses herself. A request to her husband to find and bring to her bedside four faces from the past – a treasured aunt, an old boyfriend, and two long-lost brothers – leads her and those she’s summoned to confront the choices of their lives and a buried secret that binds them together.

The Speed of Life is about a woman coping with the fallout of her Huntington’s Disease (HD) diagnosis, a fatal genetic disorder. May is National HD Awareness Month, the perfect time to read this heartrending, insightful and, ultimately, inspiring novel.

Literary Fiction – Simon’s Mansion

Simon's MansionSimon’s Mansion
By William Poe
Published: September 2019
ISBN: 978-1729078433
ASIN: B07XSFFQM6
Genre: Literary Fiction
Formats Available For Review: pdf, mobi, epub, kindle

Simon didn’t think he would ever go home again, but to plan for his future, he needs to face his past.

For Simon, the family mansion in Arkansas is a part of him. He may have fled small-town life for addiction–first to religion and then to cocaine–but he has found his way home. Now, all that’s left is for him to face those he hurt along the way. As Simon navigates his constant internal struggle between faith and atheism, he must make decisions that will forever alter the course of his life.

In this, the third book of his LGBT literary fiction series, author William Poe writes compellingly about his native Arkansas to pen a work of US historical fiction that finally includes the too-often-overlooked stories of gay and lesbian small-town Americans. Simon’s Mansion is a moving coming-of-age story about a man finally figuring out how to grow up.

Literary Fiction – Mark IV

Mark IVMark IV
By James Ostby
Published: November 2019
ISBN: 9780991448234
ASIN: B081S4JPSN
Genre: Literary Fiction
Formats Available For Review: pdf, mobi epub,

In our world of increasing complexity and the resultant human and physical constraints–overpopulation, global warming, rampant stupidity, unchecked evil, corruption, scientific advances used for ill–what is to be done? Are even the best governments incapable of maintaining order? Is the future of humankind at stake?

How many of us have wondered what we would do if we had some kind of world dictatorial power or other absolute influence? Many would find that conjecture to be overwhelming. Yet what if we limited our scope to, say, evil and corruption? The next barrier to fighting such iniquity would be the realization that too often world governments are inept when it comes to such endeavors. Inadequate due to legal, religious, intellectual, political and traditional moral strictures.

In view of that, what then if a choice had to be made between the world falling into chaos, and one in which there is secular salvation, but only through efforts that lie outside the normal bounds of the best of civilizations? There are immeasurable individuals and groups outside the laws who are vile and malevolent; why not a last-resort counterpart–unfettered by normal laws; practical and down-to-earth–dedicated to good, but who find it necessary to resort to harsh measures? Those who realize that we have come to a point in history where we must fight fire with fire.

Enter Ragnarök, a secret organization that inflicts punishments in the forms of Mark I, II, III, IV, or worse, Mark V (death).
