Monica gives an overview of the book:

  "What goes around, comes around." Truer words were never spoken, as evidenced by the complex interactions and fates of the characters in "The Turn of The Karmic Wheel." When the residents of Raleigh begin to hear music and voices that aren't "there", and to receive frightening messages from no discernable source, it soon becomes apparent that changes must - and will - be made: to their everyday lives, to their relationships, to their bodies, and, most importantly, to their souls.

"What goes around, comes around."

Truer words were never spoken, as evidenced by the complex interactions and fates of the characters in "The Turn of The Karmic Wheel."

When the residents of Raleigh begin to hear music and voices that aren't "there", and to receive frightening messages from no discernable source, it soon becomes apparent that changes must - and will - be made:

to their everyday lives, to their relationships, to their bodies, and, most importantly, to their souls.

Harry had owned his shop for many years, seen some come in and go out in a sea of police gunfire, but, hell, he couldn’t worry about every customer who purchased a weapon. Fact was, he had given up trying to figure out man’s nature years ago. Course, Euclid wasn’t one to carry arms of any sort. He didn’t remember him ever going hunting or even showing interest in the sport. Perhaps now that he was alone in life, with much time on his hands, he had decided to take it up and save some money by providing his own meat for the table. In any event, Harry knew Euclid to be a solid citizen of Raleigh, a man with a pure heart. Yes, he was a good man and a great friend. Harry went to the window and watched his friend walk down the street. He wondered if he should be concerned. For some reason, he felt a bit of uneasiness; just couldn’t put his finger on the why or wherefore. Aw, hell, he reasoned, it ain't none of my business. Yet there was something eating at his mind, a voice telling him to go no further with this transaction. It was a gut feeling he couldn’t shake, a feeling that his friend and neighbor of over 30 years was not ‘quite right’. There was definitely something ‘off the scale’ about Euclid today. A vivid image entered his mind. A vision so unfathomable he had to let it go. Harry shivered as he moved to slowly close the store’s door, continuing to watch the retreating figure kicking stones along the road, unable to shake his feelings of dread.

When I was told by a handful of published authors that readers would never wish to read a book set in a rural town in the Missouri Ozarks, nor would they read a book of mixed genre, it stirred my creative juices.
How dare anyone limit peoples minds or place readers in some sort of conceptional box. To me, it insulted the readers of the world and I set my mind on writing a novel that was a mixed genre and set in a small college town in Missouri.
Read the reviews and you'll see that those writers had no idea of what makes a great book. People have found the story stimulating and refreshing. In fact, most contact me and tell me they love the story, can't put the book down but really don't know how to explain it to others, except to tell them to read it.
I love it and am so happy my readers are enjoying a book I wrote to celebrate the readers of the world and to give them entertainment.
