Wounded Wisteria

Cleo is a spirit suffering from her own destructive thoughts. Yearning for something to feed her hunger, she stumbles across those who are detrimental to her. The Great Peet’s influence is no different. When he asks, ”Why is it you feel you have no choice?” she is quick to reply: ”I hear your touch and feel your voice.” When the story continues in the eyes of Peet, we meet the alluring Violet, for whom his love flourishes. Drawn to Violet’s grace, yet pulled by Cleo’s heartache, Peet grapples between purity and substance. Presented entirely in verse, each character in Wounded Wisteria embodies a different earthly element, while the story becomes a study of the power of perspective, and a testament to the youthful essence of craving and vulnerability inside the heart of us all.

Hi there! I am thrilled to tell you about my debut novel, Squid Season. This story is dedicated to the dreamers and doers—the ones who dare to venture outside of what they’ve known. It’s the quarter-life crisis expressed in rhyme, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it. If Squid Season makes an impact on you, please take a moment to review it on Amazon, Goodreads, B&N, or any other platforms. Thank you for taking an interest in my work. May this book fill your mind with wonder and your heart with hope.
