Book Description

The monkeys know too much – and one monkey with a mighty God-complex is about to make a Proclamation. A full moon over Dazphoob and an ancient prophecy are about to be fulfilled, setting the universe on a new evolutionary path and away from future destruction.

Bob, an extra-terrestrial with a penchant for peanuts and perfidy, is determined to prevent the prophecy from taking place to fulfill his own selfish agenda. There are those who stand in his way, though:

Join Ruth Taggett (who swears she’s being stalked by penguins), her son, Henry Taggett (a self- professed philosopher who happens to be a human-alien hybrid), Herman Vogel (who is always trying to remember the future), Randy (a sweet star child), and Sphincter (a precocious talking monkey) as they journey through space, time, a few parallel universes, and the swamps of Mobile Bay to thwart Bob’s evil plans.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun and humorous read. Really enjoyed it!! March 27, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Strange Loops is a hilarious twist on alien abductions. A very well written story that kept me up reading and laughing long after I should have gone to bed. The characters are well done and downright kooky at times. I'm a definite fan of the monkey. Overall a very fun read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not everyone is as paranoid as they appear! July 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Everyone that I know falls into this category... either great aunt Mildred, or maybe your quirky uncle Charlie is as nutty as a fruitcake. But what if... What if they weren't?

Strange Loops was a fun story to read, with enough humor to have me laughing out loud several times. It follows Henry and his mother, who insist They (with a capital T) are after them, will find them, will take them, etc. Naturally I scoffed. Ok, old people are paranoid, but then again, Henry wasn't old. Just weird. Then there's this monkey with the most unfortunate name ever. Was he really there? Was he just a figment of Henry's imagination?

Alien abductions. As soon as I realized that's what this story was about, I started chuckling. Everyone has heard stories, shaking their head sympathetically. This story, however, hooked me from the start and I quite literally didn't put the book down until I finished. My Saturday passed quite comfortably with me reading this on my iPad.

Aliens obsessed with peanuts also made me laugh. I don't want to give any spoilers away, so I won't go into detail, but if you read this (and I encourage you to!), make sure you don't have any drinks around your e-reader device lest you spew it all over. All in all, I delightful quirky tale that must be read to be believed.

Well done!

More About the Author

Hi,

I'm Deborah Prestwood and I have been writing almost since I first learned to read. What can I say? Words mesmerize me. I learned a long time ago that it's not what you say so much as how you say it. Words have power; they can evoke laughter or tears. They can make us think or conjure memories or express emotions. Words are in everything from secrets and soft whispers to exultant exaltations and passionate promises. Words can tell stories. They can take us away to other worlds, to other realities. They can even careen us through time and space. Words are like magic. I feel very lucky to be a writer.

"Strange Loops" is my first novel. I co-wrote it with my daughter, Jennifer Rose. It all began as an experiment. Jennifer wrote the first chapter and passed it along to me. I wrote the second chapter and passed it back. We continued along this way, intentionally trying to write each other into corners Eventually, the story began to tell itself. (I have written enough to know that happens only rarely). There were no character analyses or outlines. We didn't consider settings, plots, or other ordinary details. We gave our characters free reign and just let the story unfold...and, boy howdy, did it ever unfold! The characters became our friends. We are glad that for most of them, the story ended happily.

I live on Florida's beautiful Emerald Coast with my husband, Lee, and our two cats, Chloe and Claude. My two wonderful children, Jennifer and Kyle, are all grown and have flown the nest, but I still get to see them often. I am hoping for grandchildren in the near future, but hey, that's another story...
