About Spell Heaven
In Spell Heaven, a linked story collection from Counterpoint Press, a couple moves to a coast town and unexpectedly finds a sense of belonging with a group of outsiders.
Stories include the tale of an undocumented boy's drowning when a wave pulls him out to sea, an ex–FBI agent’s surveillance of a man who leaves chocolate bars at a tree in a weekly ritual, a mother on meth who teaches a lesson on mercy, and Kite Man, who flies kites from a fishing pole and sells drugs on the side. His motto: When the kites fly, you can buy.
A modern story about a band of free spirits—not unlike characters found in Steinbeck’s Cannery Row—and the queer female narrator who yearns to get in with this out crowd, Spell Heaven is for readers who are looking for a human connection in today’s increasingly isolated world.
A book Kirkus Review calls: "A seemlessly written book of beautiful connections"
