Queensborough Rock

Stephen Shaiken practiced criminal law in for more than thirty-five years, the first four in Brooklyn, and the rest in San Francisco. He is a graduate of Queens College and Brooklyn Law School, and earned an MA in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University before starting his legal studies. He and his wife Josie are residents of Tampa, Florida.

Stephen lived in Bangkok, Thailand for several years and has authored three novels in the acclaimed NJA Club Series, best described as exotic noir thrillers. The three novels-Bangkok Shadows, Bangkok Whispers and Bangkok Blues-feature American expat lawyer Glenn Murray Cohen and his eclectic friends from Bangkok’s mysterious NJA Club as they face intrigue and danger.

Queensborough Rock is a different kind of novel, set in New York City in the late sixties and early seventies. The protagonist is a young rock and roll manager struggling to break out of the second-tier Queens rock scene into the glamor and stardom of Manhattan. The novel was very loosely inspired by Stephen’s brief career as a rock manager in 1970-71.

When he isn’t writing, Stephen enjoys travel, gardening, yoga, guitar, and following politics and current events with a passion. He’s a voracious reader of fiction and nonfiction in too many genres and subjects to list. He has a special love for apocalyptic and dystopian science fiction, hard-boiled detective fiction, literary work by an endless list of authors he loves respect and admires. $1.99 on Kindle.

Cracking of the Mask

Cracking of the Mask
Everything had been planned and executed to perfection. Where was the satisfaction, then? Why was happiness always so elusive? Zenon McClow, a businessman with a checkered past, flees the United States, hiding first in Ecuador and then in the tropical paradise of New Caledonia. Plagued by burning existential questions, he begins to write down his life story while on the remote Isle of Pines. After failing to find relief, he turns to penning The Mask, a historical novel set in the mysterious land of ancient Thrace. Zenon’s fiction endeavor is inspired by Evmondia, a kind-hearted Bulgarian girl living in New York who introduced him to the colorful world of the Thracians. He bases his story on events from the 4th century BCE, a time when Philip II of Macedonia, the father of Alexander ‘the Great,’ endangered Thrace. In Zenon’s tale, a young Greek scholar, Trysimachus, sets out on a perilous quest to the court of the Thracian king Ketriporis. As Trysimachus is forced to confront his own prejudices and fears, Ketriporis must deal with the increasing threats to his rule…Beset by perils of his own—amidst ill health—Zenon re-examines The Mask, convinced it contains clues to help him resolve his troubled past. What will The Mask reveal to Zenon?

An epic tale of adventure, battles, and political intrigues—but also of self-discovery, transformation, and personal healing—Cracking of the Mask brings together two worlds and two eras that, at first glance, have little in common. Readers will experience the revival of an intriguing ancient culture as they embark on a journey in which they will face the everlasting conflict between our personas and who we are beneath the masks. $2.99 on Kindle.
