So what makes my book ‘A Distilled Spirit’ unique?

It’s written so you, the reader, can experience a long night out on the town with me.

Each chapter a bit more reflective in its prose, a bit darker and distressing as the evening unfolds. And the drinks flow…

I’d like to pour you an excerpt from my first chapter, 7pm:

‘floor mirror’

the reflection speaks lies
clay where flesh hung
wire where bones once created
sense to the structure

strength had been there
but now all is malleable
awaiting hands to reshape
to be whole again.
