From the Back Cover
Paul D. Marks, award-winning author
This is a fun ride. Despite featuring deeply troubled characters, Bloch treats them with a sense of humor that softens some edges, but dangerously sharpens others. There are times when you'll chuckle at a name or a seeming coincidence, then be blindsided with an unexpected--sometimes unsettling--turn. As the main players lose and find identities, you'll be pulled into their fragmenting worlds where truth is temporary and few are whom they seem--to others or to themselves.
About the Author
Doc Bloch, as he affectionately calls himself, teaches criminology, gender, and other things. He has appeared on TV and radio numerous times. Having grown up in different households, he became interested at a young age in the fragility of self-identity. On his own since age 15, he also developed a lifelong interest in finding food and shelter. Thus he hopes you will buy his books. JP is also a victim of identity theft, which is ironic since he has no money.
His turn-offs include Brussels sprouts, bigotry, and people who think life is simple. He enjoys people who have gained wisdom from hardship, and ask questions more than they assume answers. Besides novels, he writes poetry, non-fiction and scholarly articles. JP's paintings have been hailed as naïve folk art. Tumultuous skies are preferred over sunny ones.
