Midnight at Spanish Gardens

What If … ? What if you could make a different choice at a critical moment in your life? What if you had married someone else, turned right instead of left, had taken that job you rejected? What if you had been born a man instead of a woman?

My new novel, “Midnight at Spanish Gardens,” here explores this universal question. It is now AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER as an ebook directly from the publisher here

On Aug. 1, it will also be available at Amazon, and Smashwords. Details of the paperback edition will be announced later this year.

What it is all about: On the eve of the end of the world, Dec. 20, 2012, five friends meet in Spanish Gardens, the restaurant where they had celebrated their college graduation 20 years before. Over Irish coffees, they reminisce – and reveal long-held and disturbing secrets.

Each friend in turn is given a curious set of instructions by an enigmatic bartender named Ariel: “Your life is filled with crossroads and you are free to choose one road or another at any time. Stepping through this door takes away all choices except two — the choice to live a different life, or return to this one.”

All of them pass through the portal and into drastically changed lives. They change occupations and families; one changes gender; a woman falls in love — with another woman. In the end, four choose to return to their original lives.

One doesn’t.
