Even Steven

“Hysterical yet poignant” love-story-cum-thriller with a science-fiction flavor that spills into the spiritual elements of nature. Even Steven is a story about a widow and widower who meet in the tiny New England town of Apple after losing their true loves to murder and misfortune. Packed with an hilarious array of diverse characters and events, this “genre-bending” tale of love, death and the meaning of life, from the author of The Walking Man, is as fascinating as it is cheekily quirky.

The Walking Man


Loosely based on a true story, The Walking Man is a tale of “persistence, self-discovery, and redemption” that brings new meaning to the term “never give up.” This original and wickedly humorous love story begins when a teenage boy is inexplicably paralyzed. His family tries to care for him, but tragedy ensues causing the young man to be institutionalized. At Leicester County Hospital, a facility dedicated to excellence in everything it does, our hero sheds his bitterness after “winning” a war with his surly roommate. He then finds love when a beautiful volunteer stops by to read to him. Despite their instant connection, paralysis and the “love” of a brute leads to a breakup that forces “the walking man” to devise a plan to win back the woman he loves.

Five Stars:
Largely based on factual experience, this story immediately captivated my interest, regardless of my reservation that the subject matter would have sufficient body. But it certainly does, and the blithe and darkly humorous narrative voice carries the story along amid lovable yet dysfunctional characters – of which there are a fully furnished complement. I never spoil plots, so you’ll have to take my word that this is a book you will surely finish, once hooked after a few chapters. Be prepared to laugh out loud…

Five Stars:

I probably see 10-20 “read my book” messages a day from/by indie authors. I ignore them for the most part, because I have so little disposable time. I picked up this book on an impulse and read it. It cost me a day when I should have been writing, but it was worth it. The story is a sort of modern fable, a tale of persistence, self-discovery and redemption. It’s a novella (42,000 words) and I found it easy to read and quite enjoyable. I gave it 5 stars for the quality of the writing and the directness of the story. Part of the story reminded me of “Flowers for Algernon.”
