Warning! This book contains themes of sexual abuse and infidelity.

Pam of Babylon is the  first in a series of six books, followed by  Don't You Forget About Me, Dream Lover, Prayers for the Dying and  Family Dynamics. Watch for The Tao of Pam winter 2014.

For Long Islander Pam Smith, keeping house and staying
beautiful dominate her daily routine as she awaits the return
of her husband, Jack, every Friday evening. When he suffers a fatal heart
attack on the train home from Manhattan, Pam's exquisitely arranged
life is catapulted into turmoil as she is forced to face the realization that
her marriage is nothing more than a black hole plagued with cruel infidelity,
abuse, and sexual deviance. Witness Pam as she graciously and
gracefully accepts the foul world her husband's "other life" forces on
her previously immaculate existence. Come along for the ride of your
life as you ask yourself this one question. How well do I know my husband?
Kirkus Review says of Pam of Babylon, "An intriguing first novel that revolves
around a husband's death and hidden secrets...consistently interesting,
this psychological novel contains some mystery and moves
along quickly for a non-thriller." Of Don't You Forget About Me, "An exciting,
surprising story that leaves the reader hungry for the next book."
And of Dream Lover, the third in the series, "A gritty, realistic portrait of
the aftermath of deceit."
"Excellent!" Dan Georgakas, Editor, Cineaste Magazine

The women develop an odd bond, and Pam even invites the other two women for a weekend to relax at the beach house in Babylon—a hostess gesture that seems a bit extreme.
