Her novel, Unrequited (Rebel ePublishers), features an anxious adolescent, who "scientific" testing has shown will have a long but loveless life. Too bad even the fragrance of a female sends a shock wave to his underpants. In the face of this sexual tsunami, his self-obsessed mother discovers the Zimbalist Holistic Recliner, which gives refuge in an oasis of improved rememories. His distant father and stepmother, a former dominatrix who becomes the target of his awkward affections, add to Ezediels's confusion. Will Ezekiel, obsessed with his stepmother,.find the proof that his life will not be empty of affection? Will Dad's version of The Talk calm Ezekiel's storm? Probably not, but a midnight rendezvous just might


Review by: Anastasia3 on March 4, 2018 :
Fantastic read. Very smart, subtle and nuanced. I would say this book is slipstream, not quite sci fi, not quite fantasy, sort of like Vonnegut. It's a very funny novel, but at the same time thought provoking. It questions what it is to be human, and the roll played of both memory and regret. Weighty topics, but an easy, enjoyable read. You will love this book@
