Catching the Drift is a novel that took me 17 years to write. It was finally published by Bartleby Press in September 2012 and is available in paperback and Kindle on Amazon. Here is a summary:
Barely surviving a ruthless shooting in his Montana hometown, sixteen-year old Alex Fahlstrom awakens from a coma only to find that is memory is compromised. In an attempt to build a new life, Alex's family moves to Kansas City. Lost and emotionally adrift in this new town, Alex seeks comfort from a cast of eccentric high school strangers, including a rebellious, rock-loving party-goer and his intriguing twin sister, Danielle. Alex falls for Danielle, and as he get sucked into her brutal family drama, he begins to unlock the secrets to his own past.
Set amidst the grunge and angst of the early 1990s, Catching the Drift is a twisted tale of a romantic relationship gone horribly awry. Told completely through the perspective of Alex and his girlfriend, Catching the Drift leads the reader through a maze of intrigue and misunderstanding, shifting from a placid suburban neighborhood to open skies and majestic mountains - from dreaming to waking.
Pay attention. Nothing is what it seems in this novel that explores the metaphysical reality of individuals navigating between their inner and outer worlds.
