IN BLOOM: Life’s surprises- Good and Bad- humorously Explored in New Fiction.
LIGHTNING RELEASES (8/1/2014) – When personal tragedies send two young people into emotional dormancy, only love and care- and a mother’s intervention- can bring them back IN BLOOM.
Kindra Dean has no life to speak of. Work in the library of tiny Orangedale, Massachusetts is repetitious and thankless, but it’s all she’s got. Unless, of course, a dingy apartment counts. Anti-social and depressed, Kindra is enslaved over the death of her younger sister many years ago.
Enter Tiana, the bawdy, boisterous, masculine lesbian who moves into the apartment downstairs. Known as “T” to her friends, she’s just the breath of fresh air Kindra needs to drag her out of her self-imposed melancholy.
Then comes along Tommy Shannon, an angry-at-the world, wheelchair-bound fellow who wants nothing more than to be left alone to wallow in his miserable world of self-pity and pornography. Tommy’s Irish mother will have none of that, and arranges a meeting between Tommy and Kindra. The rendezvous is both disastrous and hilarious- but one that changes their lives forever. Though the two broken people have experienced their own personal winters, Spring has now come and they are, at long last IN BLOOM.
