• "An allegory of power, submission, and drugs"

    My novelette The Bitter Fruit of Forever is now available on Amazon.com.

    Soo-zee Wanabi and his friends are rebel soldiers fighting the oppressive regime that rules their world. But when their own commander commits an act of shocking brutality Soo-zee and his friends learn that bravery is not so easy–and that oftentimes the real enemy is the one that lies within.

    The Bitter Fruit of Forever is a haunting story about hard choices and the aftermath of violence. And I think it’s safe to say it’s unlike anything you’ve ever read.

    What readers are saying about The Bitter Fruit of Forever on Amazon.com:

    Imaginative writing that packs an emotional wallop.

    An intense allegorical tale that keeps you reading.

    For me, this is an allegory of power, submission, and drugs. The consequences of taking a stand for what is right, or just looking the other way and playing it safe.

    Shares peculiar (though welcome) similarities with the works of Kafka and RW Fassbinder, HBO’s “Oz” and Wong Kar-wai’s “Ashes of Time.”

    We all deal with painful experiences in our own way. Some of us hide them. Some of us pretend they didn't happen. Some rewrite them. Some, by expressing them through fiction, work through them to help themselves and ultimately help others. And that's noble. Read this book.

    The Bitter Fruit of Forever is available for $6.29 in paperback or $2.99 on Kindle.
