About the Author

I write a mix of books: novels, biography, short nonfiction. I set my novels in Toronto, my home for most of my life, a city of contradictions and ripe with conflict possibilities. My debut book, LIFELINER, is set in Ontario, but also travels down to New York and across the pond to Sweden. My life is one big question mark, has been ever since I sustained a closed head injury (or mild traumatic brain injury or concussion, whichever moniker is fashionable) in a four-car collision. But my writing keeps me grounded, my photography takes me to other places. I wrote about it and treatments I discovered in my revised memoir CONCUSSION IS BRAIN INJURY: TREATING THE NEURONS AND ME. When I'm not writing, reading, taking photographs, I'm hunting for good coffee and sensational chocolate.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. Zarine and Jim are driving home from a road trip. While Zarine was napping, to her dismay, Jim decides to come off of Highway 10 and take a back road through the forest. Zarine is suddenly filled fear and begs Jim to go back on the highway. Out of nowhere comes a neon green wind that spins their car, damages the windshield and invisibly enters Zarine. Her life is inexplicably changed. This is Zarine’s journey, fighting Akaesman Syndrome. I love the fact that someone mixed an alien invasion into a Christian Fantasy novel. This book was brilliantly written, with the good versus evil concept. Akaesman, even the description of him and his behavior tells you that this ‘thing’ is Satan. I enjoyed the fact that she needed to be spiritually strong to defeat him. There were a lot of parallels to Christianity, the way we think and how it assists in overcoming obstacles. I enjoyed this very much. I felt really bad for Zarine with the situation she had with her friends. The issues she had with them were realistic and so was what she was going through, her symptoms seemed close to Fibromyalgia. I loved her fighting spirit and the fact that she never gave up. All in all, a great book that teaches us to never give up, and that when you feel alone, you’re not.
