A split personality tries to heal himself/herself.

Joanna is a prisoner in a mental institution for the criminally insane. The problem is, she is completely sane, yet there is no doubt she committed an awful crime that resulted in her being locked away there.

She begins to realize another consciousness is hiding in her brain, particularly when the other consciousness begins sending her letters!

What is behind this dramatic situation? How did 'Marvin' become Joanna's alternate personality?

We'll tell you a story that'll keep you wondering, right up to the final page....

rereading after 10 years, I'm still proud of the description of the detassling crew. I was a crew boss for a few summers and wished, now, I'd had half the sense this foreman had. When my crews weren't hating me, they were walking all over me or plotting how to get me in trouble.

the story begs to be completed. I don't have the energy to pick my way through the complicated maze of potential resolutions. Someone else can pick this up and make a success of it.

Progress is slow these days, as my heart just doesnt seem to be into my work. Hopefully once the holidays are over i will. Until that time, i hope you'll all enjoy these works.

Thank you for your comment on "A World of Dreams". I decided the prologue i had was throwing readers off a little, so thats why i changed that. I hope to see you making progress on your book as well, but i understand you're busy and dont blame you for your inactivity- just let me know when things pick up, okay?

cheers!
