Publisher info

My friend Janis Hoffman, who holds a modestly high level job in government, wishes to remain anonymous. She wrote the Alice series about the wild adventures of a highly intelligent young girl. Alice lost her mother and father at an early age, and getting kicked out of 10 foster homes has turned her into a self-centered, oversexed, murderous brat. She knows about the ancient Egyptian World of Shadow, and has no trouble running circles around the intelligentsia of UC Berkeley.

The Alice series is not for the easily offended! Adult language is used when appropriate to the narrative. Taboos are regularly broken, political correctness ignored, old habits and ways of thinking challenged.

I’m a retired psychologist with many years of friendship with people asking for help with personal problems. Both Janis and I have written our books to have fun, and to expand what you can think, feel and become. To expand your maps of Reality, and invite you to the dance.

Smashwords book reviews by Ernest Kinnie

  • Mirror Reversal on June 17, 2013

    Maybe this book was written by a guy who has led a full, life, with his eyes wide open, and a great imagination. But, I suspect it was written by a woman with a fake name, who has had considerable real world experience on the street, to put it as nicely as I can. Either way, the settings in the book are wonderfully REAL and so are the people. Beautifully written, outrageous, and over the top. The book is either hilariously funny or horribly serious, depending on your mood and belief system. I read the hard cover edition a year ago but only gave it four stars because parts of the book were a little too polemical for me. No problem this time. Now the polemics are nicely woven into the story, so it well deserves an unqualified 5 stars. If you want a fun romp in the sun and a weird journey through the mirror, buy the book.
