Castles: A Fictional Memoir of a Girl with Scissors
Castles has been called "...disturbing, creepy..." - "Uncomfortable...but fascinating" - "Shear madness..." - "Highly recommended"
It is "...a visceral tale on many levels, one that makes you squirm because what you are reading is so horrible, yet prevalent in the world today."
When Maggie was six, she hid from desert storms under the sink where the Comet and Windex were kept. Now twenty, she welcomes the storms. Maggie has been abused, torn apart by the sins of others and constantly feels as if she is living on the verge of some grand epiphany. Then again, she may just be insane. Maggie doesn't know if the four bodies she dismembered and placed inside a rusted Volkswagen Bus are the only bricks left to her castle in the sky, but she hopes you'll understand if they're not.
Castles is Maggie's story, a literary horror novel about love and redemption, belief and revenge and what brings a person to madness. Set in a nameless desert in a nameless town, it is the view into the life of a young woman who wonders if madness is really mad.
