Caution: Exotic Animals to be Released



Setting the Family Free, my latest novel, is being published by Loyola University's Apprentice House Press in October 2019!

What is Setting the Family Free about? Here's a brief teaser:

The loner who collects unusual things. The private reserve of exotic pets released into a rural Ohio community. The estranged wife who loves the animals like family. The caretaker who knows the beasts are dangerous. The Sheriff and his team of experts who
must hunt the creatures down. The animal advocate who winces at the spectacle. The celebrity zookeeper who knows what must be done. 

This story expands through the innovative use of multiple narratives, news broadcasts, newspaper articles, press conferences, political tapes, and quotes from experts, eyewitnesses, and those closest to the unfolding events. Who are the heroes; who are the victims? Who gets to decide?

Setting the Family Free, Loyola University Apprentice House Press, October 2019.
