About this product
- Description1924. In New York City, an seven year old girl with symptoms of synesthesia befriends a street performer. They dream of rivaling Houdini until the magician endangers them both by stealing wrist watches. 1984. In Mexico, a dying woman wanders lost in the desert. She encounters a shaman, a delirious New York artist, ransom-seeking desperadoes, an unlikely villain, a dolphin, and an Aboriginal spirit named Boonga. 2004. In Saudi Arabia, an American graduate student with schizophrenia forgoes medication so that she may use her 'gift' - the ability to experience historic events. Psychotic symptoms emerge as the man she loves lures her into the hands of slave traders. Each story continues on a wild ride into afterlives, fraught with challenges both familiar and unexpected, such as a flying space turtle, a gigantic goddess, bickering angels, and a splintered ego. All threads lead to a monumental after-afterlife where questions are answered and the unity of existence is fulfilled.
- Author BiographyThere once was a young man, fiery by Sicilian and Cherokee blood, whose service in the U.S. Marines gave him the courage to win the love of the woman he most desired. He and this tall, blonde-haired, blue-eyed German beauty renounced their scrabble upbringing, that concrete box of city life-they were lured instead by country roads, nature's serenades, and untrimmed pastures. To their daughter, Chance Maree, they offered arm loads of books from the library each Sunday, a college education, and the certainty that if she worked hard enough, that which she dreamed could be achieved. Accustomed as she grew to literary travels, Chance fled rural serenity to taste the complex textures of cities, work in executives positions for high-tech companies, earn a Master's degree, and travel the world. Chance Maree is now a bootstrap novelist and story-telling enthusiast who gravitates towards upmarket fiction with a speculative slant. She has published three novels, ALEXIOS, BEFORE DYING, UNDAZZLED, and DARK MATTER TIDING. Her current project is titled, A PRINCESS AMONG THORNS AND THISTLE. Chance's writing is eclectic. She strives for plots that twist and surprise. Chance has been transplanted to Texas by her astrophysicist husband where they live with three dogs and a native Texan, scorpion-killing cat.
