“An astonishing book that addresses – as no other that I’ve read lately – the complexity of love and memory and desire. —Barbara Lambert, author of The Whirling Girl

Living Underground CoverSheila Martin’s dismal childhood is irrevocably transformed when Sigmund Maier, the family’s enigmatic German tenant, introduces her to opera, music and much more. When he reappears in her ordered and successful adult life, Sigmund asks for her help with an immigration issue. A novel told in two points of view, LIVING UNDERGROUND take us on a journey through childhood and generations, allowing a glimpse into the secrets and mysteries that shaped these complex and intriguing adults.

“The world of books and publishing is undergoing a dynamic change. For writers, this has meant facing the challenge of competing in a massive global marketplace. But is also an amazing opportunity to seek out innovative and new opportunities to meet readers and engage in conversations through social media, public appearances and quiet, one-on-one chats. Thanks to Melissa Moores and the JUzTDIzRTS event for creating one of those wonderful opportunities; I’m honoured to be included.”
