On a Personal Note

Triumph and revenge are recurring themes because (right now) that's what's bringing me joy. If the stories I write inspire me to laugh out loud as I write them, I take that as a cue that I'm moving in an auspicious direction.
Even though some of the issues I raise are provocative, my stories are darkly funny. In life, I've come to welcome humor in unexpected places; it presents itself in my writing in the same way. (Yes, I'm promising you laughs.) In anything I write, my goal is to leave the reader with something worthwhile to take home, a new tool for your mental shed, something to help out, to alleviate and uplift—not just while reading the story but for the long haul. Writing novels has been extremely rewarding for me. I want to spread those good feelings around.
I wrote my first story when I was about 12; I had just discovered Judy Blume. At my primary school, about twice a year, our homeroom teacher would pass out full color catalogs of books for young readers. The catalogues were cheaply printed on thin newspaper but chock full of tiny images of book covers and a brief synopsis for each book. Those were my favorite days at school, but also the days I'd get into trouble; we were supposed to take them home and look at them there, but I could never wait to do that and would have to be told several times to put the catalog away! My mom raised me on her own—I don't know how she did it!—but she still found a way to let me choose all the books I wanted from those catalogs. It was like Christmas when those books finally arrived at school. My book bag would be full to busting with all my new paperback books—it's how I caught the book bug.

Mollyville is intrigue on an intimate level

Complicated family issues surrounded by multiple sex & love triangles, all set in a mystical small town. Mollyville is intrigue on an intimate level. You'll be hooked in no time.

I couldn't stop turning the page!

I read this novel over the holidays and so glad I did! I just couldn't stop turning the page...each chapter was filled with juicy new drama! The characters have entertaining personalities! I felt like I was right in Mollyville while reading this. I definitely recommend.

Thank you for your encouragement.

THE STORY

Bjørn Olsen, a healing psychopath in the golden years of self-recovery, struggles to maintain his cool in Mollyville, an idyllic seaside commune nestled in the green valley of a mountain range jutting out of the sea. It's a whole new world separated from an earlier one (the one just like ours) not by the passage of time, but by distance, exclusion from world maps, and self-reliance.

Mollyville is completely off-the-grid.

Rich with cutting-edge technology and abundant in natural resources, Mollyville thrives as a self-policing, paradise community with beaches, cliffs, exotic forests and a system of unknowably vast subterranean caverns that extend beyond sight. Social media is a construct of the past. No emails. No smart phones. No telephones. And, no problems… until Bjørn runs into his wife’s used-to-be best-friend at a hotel bar and makes the terrible mistake of approaching her. He had no idea she’d become so bitter. Shouting allegations, she causes a scene.

As the salacious gossip rips through Mollyville, whispers of ‘a recognizing’ bleed through the community. Bjørn, laden with his rotten adult children, a careless, promiscuous wife and a vindictive ex-girlfriend, begins to fear the Olsens have rocked the boat a little too hard.

While Mollyville residents give each other a wide berth, tolerating all but some transgressions in the name of keeping the peace—there’s no formal law enforcement—there is an integrity-based peacekeeping by way of calling for ‘a recognizing’ when it’s deemed by influential members of the community that the peace and/or safety of Mollyville is threatened. In this instance, a fluctuating, self-assigned faction of residents take on roles of marauders to exact (a sometimes brutal) satisfaction, making a demand of retribution on behalf of the perceived wronged or the community at large in the most extreme cases of acrimony.

And Bjørn and his wife Eva are targets for murder.

Miles away, new arrivals to Mollyville, Janik and Nohl, two dodgy grifters tired of selling ‘sensual massages’ and asking for rooms and food on credit, decide to give up their lives of petty crime, allowing themselves to be mentored in the hopes of making Mollyville their new home. Plateau Nick, a crazy artist who prefers life in the forest, offers them a better way of life; it looks like the best thing going until an arms dealer named Merv makes each man an offer he can’t refuse, and they discover that—just like every other place they’ve been—there’s a cost to pay.

This story depicts disturbing relationships, employs suggestive descriptions, dark humor and frank language. It is intended for a sexually and emotionally mature audience.
