Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Lucy Faas was lonely, though she didn’t realize it before coming to stay at Alexander Murphy’s Montecito home. She just thought she was leaving her suburban hermitage for a fresh place where she could work on the comeback for her abandoned music career--she never expected to open up about the attack whose songwriting therapy propelled her into a music career, or that she would be joining an assemblage of celebrities hiding from a bored populace who would include her in their eccentric family; nor that she would be the one to solve the mystery of the home's enigmatic host; and it was absolutely unthinkable that she would fall in love, and then learn the secret that could bring this celebrity halfway house to a shameful end. And no one expected lurking Doom would soon be climbing over the wall.

Incorporating Lucy’s songwriting, architecture-themed articles, and sections of pure dramatic dialogue into its seriocomic narrative, and with a cast of celebrities alternately inspired and imagined, Alexander Murphy’s Home for Wayward Celebrities is a literary novel that explores modern celebrity, ambition, and the creative process with style, humor, and heart.
