adrift… unmoored, aimless, disoriented
In her twenties Megan Danner wrote three novels that found both critical and popular acclaim. She was regaled by the literary world and appeared on The Today Show and Oprah Winfrey. She lived in New York City and traveled the world. Life was good.
At 30 she married. At 31 she had a daughter. At 32 she found out she was pregnant with twins. She and her husband moved to the suburbs. Near Mom.
Megan the novelist slowly began to drift, to disappear. When we lose our bearings, when those we trust betray us, when our dreams begin to die… the sane turn mad. The sweet turn bitter. The contented turn violent.
Megan has now been saddled with a decade-long writer’s block. It was, she believes, brought on by marriage, three kids, relentless domestic drudgery, stress, inertia, way too much time with Mom, and finally the proverbial straw that has, just recently broken the camel’s–Agnes’–back.
Plots are being hatched. Characters are being torn asunder. All hell is about to break loose.
adrift is the story of one woman’s efforts to take control of her life, only to discover control is, at best, a shadowy and elusive illusion.
