The Duzy House of Mourning

The Duzy House of Mourning

THE DUZY HOUSE OF MOURNING is the compelling story of a young woman who survived an unthinkable accident the night she was born, an accident that claimed the life of her father, and forever altered her mother who sustained a traumatic brain injury.

The book opens 22 years later. January Duzinski has been raised by her Polish paternal grandparents and works as an embalmer in their mortuary. She’s a bit of an introvert, completely comfortable with the dead, completely brilliant (like her mother was) at the piano. And she has a very conflicted relationship with her non-verbal, disabled mother, Claire.

But January’s life is about to veer off its course with the arrival of one Oscar Thibodeau—attorney for her maternal grandmother, Rose Winston, a woman January has never met, a woman who is suddenly deceased. It seems there is a Steinway concert grand piano up for grabs…and anything else that might interest January.

Thus begins January’s reluctant journey into the incredible life of her mother. Through Claire’s diaries January is introduced to a strong, savvy, confident, enormously talented girl who disinherited herself from the wealth and trappings of a life she did not want. January is also made privy to a firsthand account of her parents’ love story, and the price Claire paid to be with her Polish undertaker. For the first time, January meets the father she has only known through her Duzinski grandparents. $0.99 on Kindle.

Poetry, a Beauty

Poetry, a Beauty
All my life, I was taught to follow the leader, as they coerced my thoughts, scrubbed my mind, confined my thinking, grabbed my attention and molded my every idea, like locking a bird into a cage.

Poetry came to the rescue as it released those birds from the cage; every bird flew into the sky, chose its own paths, encountered its own winds, witnessed its own colors…

As a child at night lying in bed, I saw the stars twinkling back at me, scintillating, sparking something in my young mind. They explained this magic as just physics: stars burst, light traveled, years, decades, even centuries later it reaches you and me.

It seems like I had never felt any magic until one day, when I recalled a line from a dead poet. I sensed his words lit up the night sky for me. It came and left, nothing to do with how far they had to travel. As imagination soars with those birds into the clouds, from that moment on, I started to compile the flashing glimmers, one by one, one cluster at a time.

Through so many years I counted, there were 105 poets of the past I have compiled in “A Few Words About Stars,” in the last two chapters of this book.

I know, there are many more birds and stars.

But, I chose to stop counting and am sorry to have missed those I did not include in this tally. I pray and believe there will always be more eyes to view the stars above with wonder, and more poets to light up the night sky in the foreseeable and unforeseeable future.

Fleeing from her home after escaping the murder of her mother, inexperienced and petrified by reality with her horse as her only companion – Charlotte is met by the most notorious serial killer of the nation. His dark past and her dark future collide, in a world filled with dangers far greater than him.

Set in the rugged Victorian west at the end of the 19th century with a myriad of complex characters, all intertwined in a brutal environment that examines the conflicting nature and morality of humanity. Charlotte may be innocent at heart, but the world she lives in is not. Filled with dangers from gangs to cults and a mysterious horror element that persists throughout – the overarching gothic love story fills this thrilling, dark adventure up until the haunting end…leaving the reader with an existential dread so deep that it must be read to be understood, yet craving for more.

This novel is definitely for an adult audience, as the content is very heavy and challenging. It will appeal to those interested in a gothic romance with undertones of psychological horror. Most importantly, this book is a form of literary fiction; as character development is the most crucial factor in telling this story and it does not follow the typical tropes of a genre book. Subtle hints to the dark machinations behind the scenes, and interweaving characters who gradually change and grow over time, all work together to create a living world – filled with the unexpected – in which to lose yourself within.

If you want something to read on autopilot, and wish for the plot to follow a certain expected pattern, this is not the book for you. This experience will challenge you; a gripping story that will invade you, heart and mind, long after reading. Free on Kindle.

Stories
Four remarkably unsuccessful stories by one remarkably unsuccessful author. Yet each has its moments.

All I Longed for Long Ago Was You – A story of love that echoes through time.

The romance in this book is gorgeous and the emotions expressed by the characters are very strong, especially the love and longing for each other.-Shaz-Goodreads

AMANDA – A story of forgiveness and second chances.

The plot tugs at the heart without guile, grown from a simple, touching seed-crystal: the author’s stumbling on a memorial plaque to a lost child. Moore’s prose, as direct and open-hearted, engages and drives a classic story-Lost in Romance Books.

The Christmas Story – How a Christmas Stocking helps keep precious memories alive.

I loved reading this book. It is short but powerful. Sad when we lose someone we love. Even sadder when we try not to remember them just so we don’t get emotional. This book made me cry. Happy tears of course! Robyn Micheals-Goodreads
I
The Mist – How three friends conquer their fears and save an ancient civilization from extinction.

Three friends are connected to the past and have to deal with monsters, myths and mayhem to find a way to make things right. This book is a different tale than I was expecting, but is a good, short read that holds the reader’s imagination and attention. P.S. Winn-Goodreads
