Stranger or Friend

STRANGER OR FRIEND, from Solstice Publishing, March 2015

Inspiration, at times elusive, rushes at us like a storm of jagged images when a story must be told.  Such was the case in the writing of this mystery novel – the culmination of two lives at a confluence of cultures: an Eastern European immigrant – the author – married to a California native of Hispanic descent. The result is a highly fictionalized story, an observation, of intersecting cultures, of newcomers and locals, the bumps along the way, discovery, rejection, and acceptance. This is the story of a woman going back home, only to find that home is no longer the place she remembers, or maybe never really knew.

The night shift left Duncan suspended in a strange reality– too wired for sleep and too tired to move. All he wanted was to pass out, nightmares and all, but with the head noise and daylight cutting through his skull, that wasn’t going to happen. ~ A Blurred Reality

I found myself on the rocky beach along the Pacific Ocean, in a place so quiet I could hear the earth’s pulse. The moaning of the sea. ~ Summer Rain
