About Cheryl Anne Gardner

Cheryl Anne Gardner is a hopeless dark romantic, lives in a haunted house, and often channels the spirits of Poe, Kafka, and de Sade. She prefers novellas and flash fiction to writing bios because she always seems to forget what point of view she is in. When she isn’t writing, she likes to chase marbles on a glass floor, eat lint, play with sharp objects, and make taxidermy dioramas with dead flies. Her writing has been described as "beautifully grotesque," her characters "deliciously disturbed." Her short fiction has been published in dozens of journals including Dustbin, Hobo Pancakes, Carnage Conservatory, Pure Slush, Negative Suck, Danse Macabre, and at The Molotov Cocktail among others. She lives with her husband on the East Coast USA, and she is currently the head fiction editor at Apocrypha and Abstractions Literary Journal.

I really enjoyed this book. Once again it is something unique and different. But this time the characters are people I swear I knew in graduate school.

The characters in this particular novel are men and women trying to live their lives in spite of the expectations of family and society. It is a theme that I can understand and empathize with. Of course, the story is still dark and a bit bloody, so read only if you think you can handle it.
