Since her name means “eternal life,” Zoë Rarefield is convinced she can find a way to live forever, roaming back and forth between her mother in Heaven and her friends on Earth. Zoë finds a drink recipe in an old cookbook called “An aphrodisiac for your angel.” With this recipe, she intends to entice an angel to bear her up to heaven. In pursuit of her angel, Zoë, her beloved step-brother, and a Hunkpapa tribal elder stumble into what could be the most catastrophic environmental disaster in U.S. history.

Set in the Black Hills of South Dakota, Aphrodisiac for an Angel is a story of youthful adventure and heroism.

About the Author

Thomas Timmins was born in rural Iowa. He somehow won the genes-and-family lottery when he inherited natural happiness coupled with a skeptical eye. Despite the gifts of love and empathic values he received, he's had his magic carpet pulled out from under him many times. He stays aloft because of his four magnificent children and their miraculous lives and children. Thomas has published and performed his poetry and short fiction in person and in print across the U.S. and on the internet. With poet friends, he founded Fractals, a literary tabloid and ran Poets and Players, a community performance series.

Having had more jobs than most itinerant workers, he turned the experiences into fodder for his literary work and confidence to found, create and manage his own projects for a living and for community service. Thomas developed and taught writing and coaching programs for inmates, published commercial writing, founded, managed, and advised several small businesses ranging from soyfoods to ice cream to telephone fundraising to biological pest control to a video game start-up to energy efficiency retrofits and a media company. (Some might think all of these projects reveal an innate instability, though Thomas believes it's more about the Crooked Path he and everyone meander.)
