R N Stephenson
Cassandra is haunted by the death of Mariz Sanchez, an author she exposed as a fraud. He committed suicide after extensive media exposure. Mariz’ ghost has taken up residence in Cassandra’s Santa Monica home and he is demanding she follows him. Into death or out of the house? She doesn’t know, and the more she drinks the less sense she is making of the situation.
Maybe death is her punishment. Dying would be easier than confronting the ghost, the evil of the darkness and her emotional upheaval. Some people say there are some things worse than death and to a writer, the cliche always raises the hackles. Cassandra has seen death and what she sees would even make God shudder. With a bottle of whisky in one hand and her medications in the other, she decides to survive. If she doesn’t die first, of course. Do You Want to Live Forever? takes place in a world of Goths, strip clubs, bars and an apartment so void of light it makes the dark of night gleam.
Welcome to Cassandra’s world.
