S.M. Muse


After meeting Frank Herbert, author of the acclaimed Dune Series, I decided the life of writing was for me. That was about 30 years ago, I've been writing ever since. Heir of Nostalgia is my first published novel, and thanks to the encouragement of my loving wife Janet, is the first in a series chronicling the trials and tribulations of young man in search of his family, his country as well as his place in the world. I am pleased to present it here, for your reading pleasure. I truly believe in the gift and wonder of reading, I hope you do as well.

Here's to the land of wonder, an air of Nostalgia, and childhood memories. May we never grow too old to dream...

Got a question, comment or review, I'd love to hear from you. Simply drop me a line at: heirofnostalgia@gmail.com.

Most know me as Kaelynn Carroll, Theo’s fiance and curator of the New York Museum of Art. But what they don’t know, what few can even see, is the darkness that stirs within me, a Pandora’s Box of hunger and anger and disease.
