Book excerpt: Whether pulled from the folds of memory, channeled through the icons of Greek mythology and Roman Catholicism, or filtered through the lens of pop culture, Sonja Livingston's Queen of the Fall considers the lives of women. Exploring the legacies of those she has crossed paths with in life and in the larger culture, Livingston weaves together strands of memory with richly imagined vignettes to explore becoming a woman in late 1980s and early 1990s America. Along the way, the award-winning memoirist brings us face-to-face with herself as an inner-city girl--trying to imagine a horizon beyond poverty, fearful of her fertility and the limiting arc of teenage pregnancy. Livingston looks at the lives of those she's known: friends who've gotten themselves into "trouble" and disappeared never to be heard from again, girls who tell their school counselor small lies out of necessity and pain, and a mother whose fruitfulness seems, at times, biblical. Livingston interacts with figures such as Susan B. Anthony, the Virgin Mary, and Ally McBeal to mine the terrain of her own femininity, fertility, and longing. Queen of the Fall is a dazzling meditation on loss, possibility, and, ultimately, what it means to be human. Watch a book trailer

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A story of another age, of an early civilization seen only dimly through the veil of time. It’s a time when life is more primitive and closer to our animal roots. Life is hard, and wealth, glory and sexual pleasures are taken by conquest. The Thralkild court is rich and opulent, with scantily clad slaves and breathtakingly beautiful courtesans, all of whom who eagerly engage in the most outrageous acts at the command of their lecherous sovereign. From these mists, emerge two strong personages: The great King Rahn the Conquerer, and his consort, Lohr his proud and beautiful Queen. Both are ambitious, ruthless, cunning, and both revel in sexual pleasure, at a court known far and wide for the depths of its depravity. Though the King's lustful appetite is legendary, it remains for his newly-chosen Consort, the insatiable "Ice Queen," to plunge that depraved court into new depths. She’s a woman consumed by bizarre erotic obsessions driving her in the relentless pursuit of power and sensual pleasure – a pursuit that will lead to her ultimate downfall.

Her death, and more that followed, alarmed the police department. While looking into these puzzling events, Persephone Dahl’s ordinary life as a police began to alter when Javed Atanasio, a dog handler, joined the force. As they worked together to solve the mysterious death and other cases, romance developed between the two until they found out they were both in love with each other. But there was something about Javed that was mystifying. Not later, Sephi found out that Javed was a demon who existed for more than two thousand years. Would she accept him for who he is and where would this discovery lead them and their love? Skillfully written with mystery, suspense and gripping scenes, The Falls is one engaging read everyone will surely enjoy from beginning to end.
