about

From a fresh, independent voice comes a collection of nine stories built on powerful emotional ground.

What does it take to forge self-identity, confront the past, shatter personal myths and live an authentic life? "In Dreaming in Fields of Killer Sheep," these questions are weaved throughout narratives in which individuals willing to face conflict--both external and internal--gain glimpses of truth in the shadows.

An everyman confronts a sexual predator in a department store and faces a dark reality lying just beneath the surface of his psyche. A political staffer returns to her childhood home for a funeral and discovers disturbing news that challenges her to act. An opportunist seeking an easy way out of trouble unexpectedly faces a choice of being an accomplice to unknown evil or an improbable hero. And in the title story, a young advertising executive crashes from his ascent into a sea of questions about what being authentic really means.

These and other tales in this collection challenge us to look beyond the obvious into dimly lit margins where truth and perception aren't so easily divided, and where the battle for self is joined.
