Sparrow's second book is now available! This book has been entered in the 2019 Kindle Storyteller contest, so wish me luck!
I always want to challenge myself and include new writing elements and styles in each new book. For this book, I explored writing suspense and horror - and some of my readers have reported that it definitely creeped them out in certain episodes.
The story takes place in the town of Lozere, which is loosely based on the French province by the same name. The geography and features of the town are a combination of Strasbourg, France, and Kiev, Ukraine.
France has something of a history with hallucinogens. Anyone who has watched Moulin Rouge can tell you that absinthe used to be a popular escape from reality for Parisians. Although absinthe is not featured in this book, I assure you that the elements in this story are deeply rooted in factual science, true history, and just a little local legend and folklore.
I hope you'll check it out! And I hope it doesn't give you any new nightmares...
