Today we shine the spotlight on Lisa de Nikolits and her new novel
A Glittering Chaos
available now from Ianna Publishing
From the blurb:
A terrific, smart, funny and incredibly wise story about marriage, secrets and lies and unusual sexual proclivities.A German woman in her early-forties insists on accompanying her husband to Las Vegas, where he has a business conference.
Unknown to her the conference is a pretext; he's there to find a psychic who will help him contact his sister who vanished at fourteen. A key theme is how one person's psychiatric problems can move like a destructive whirlwind through other people's lives and within the confines of a curious and shifting family dynamic, lie the dark mysteries. Melusine (protagonist) is a passionate and creative woman with a high tolerance for the eccentric expressions of human frailty.
From suppressed wife and librarian to nude model; to writer of an erotic Sapphic novella; and finally to pastry chef and adoptive mother of a baby boy, she has a good sense of self-discovery-she embraces her erotic desires with self-love after she realises, with surprise, that she even has an erotic self.
A Glittering Chaos is a novel about empowerment and new beginnings at every stage of life, with a diverse cast of unconventional characters of all ages and sexual orientations who find themselves in intriguingly unusual situations.
