After much request, here is the tentative book blurb (synopsis) of my current work in progress, “Straddling the Void“ (formerly titled “Blind”), a contemporary adult fiction novel:
Ambitious and proud, Kyle Lemay, is walking the path to success but when circumstances change and he is fired from a prominent job opportunity, the stress and frustration are overwhelming. When things couldn’t possibly get worse, they do. But then Kyle meets Charlie and things begin to look hopeful.
In the shadow of patriarchal society, feminist activist Charlie Sinclair, dedicates her time and talents for the empowerment of the shamed and blamed victims of sexual crimes. However, after a friend from her past reenters her life, the nightmares of her adolescence return, threatening the very ideals she’d so blatantly die for.
Straddling the Void is a contemporary and provocative adult drama set in Canada’s capital city, where strangers fall in love, beliefs are challenged and lives are threatened.
Can love conquer adversity or will injustice prevail?
