Thank you, Donna, for inviting me to guest on your blog.
This intermingling of genres in present day literature is symptomatic of our evolving ‘global society’. The edges and definitions of everything are melding, welding, and merging—from nations and races and peoples to biological classifications, historical events, and mind vs matter.
In tune with this trend, my latest novel, SCHRÖDINGER’S CAT, skips out of its sci-fi genre and speaks to readers of both the Paranormal and Women’s Lit.
SCHRÖDINGER’S CAT is based on the quantum physics theory that everything that can possibly happen does happen—there are many universes, not ‘out there’, but worlds in which we fully participate. Some of these worlds are very similar to ours and some are vastly different. Chordelia, the protagonist, gets caught up in alternate realities. That is the Sci-Fi part.
Although in reality (in our universe), scientists have tentatively declared there is no possibility of communication between these many worlds, SCHRÖDINGER’S CAT looks at what might happen if they are wrong about that. Perhaps bleed through does happen. Perhaps in these lives of ours in other worlds rests the scientific explanation for deju vu, premonitions, hallucinations, creativity, and insanity. Perhaps… Therein lies the paranormal part of SCHRÖDINGER’S CAT.
The Women’s Lit part of the novel is that despite being haunted by alternate universes, Chordelia struggles with the same gut-wrenching emotional and relationship problems experienced by women around the globe.
SCHRODINGER’S CAT: A woman’s angst. Death and dying. Choice and fate. A sci-fi/paranormal/ psychological/crime thriller
A great read for everybody.
Available on Amazon, Smashwords, and other fine stores.
