Hi, welcome to my “Anthony” Page. Why the name change? Do I have a split personality or something? No, of course not. Well, at least not one that has been formally diagnosed. But when it comes to my writing? I have two separate voices. Tony loves to write supernatural thrillers and psychological thrillers. Anthony loves to write literary stories and short stories. So as not to confuse my readers, I thought it would be best to separate the two worlds. Because, well, confused readers become frustrated readers. And no writer wants to frustrate their readers. So, I have two, separate newsletters that go out each month. Some of you may like everything I write (one can hope!), and if so, you can subscribe to both of them. But, since we all get enough emails these days, I at least wanted to give you the option of subscribing to just one list or the other. Regardless, thanks for reading! I couldn’t do this without you.
The Church of The Lighted Window: Volume One – Denial
Sometimes, in order to find your soul, you have to lose your mind.
Kyle Getty was a successful, accomplished person. Until the day he lost his mind and brutally assaulted a man who was bullying a disabled person. Now, Kyle has been placed into court ordered therapy at Fallbrooke Mental Institution in Oregon.
Waiting to meet him at Fallbrooke are a group of fellow “clients” that he will never forget. There is the young man who will only speak in rhymes and the French girl who cannot sleep. There is the old man who is trying to sketch his memories in the face of his Alzheimer’s, and lastly, a woman with a fatal brain tumor who believes that she has found a way to live forever.
Trapped and unable to distract himself with the world anymore, Kyle is forced to come face to face with what has ultimately brought him to Fallbrooke, a pain rooted in the grief he has denied himself since the loss of his father, then his mother, and finally, his dreams.
But there is someone else waiting to meet Kyle at Fallbrooke. God. Someone that Kyle Getty has never given himself the proper time to fully get to know. Until now.
