Can You See Me? Now an Ebook

My novel, Can You See Me? is newly available as an ebook.  This novel is close to my heart and is written with the power of first-hand experience. 

When happens when the person you love most, best, falls prey to schizophrenia?  Can You See Me? is the story of Doren and Sarah Solomon, a brother and sister so close they share a secret place, imaginary world, and private language during childhood.  While Sarah grows up and relinquishes their private haven, for Doren, it becomes a way of life he never surrenders.  Sarah struggles to help Doren, even to save him, without going under herself.  Told in the voices of Doren and Sarah, Can You See Me? is a powerful psychodrama portraying schizophrenia from the inside-out.

A recommended book by The National Alliance of the Mentally Ill and a Pushcart Prize Nominee.

Publishers Weekly had this to say about the novel: "Heartfelt, ambitious; one family's way of coping with the trauma, shame and secrecy of mental illness.  A genuinely moving novel."

With one person in every four families grappling with some form of mental illness, Can You See Me? is a story readers will connect with.
