BLUE COYOTE MOTEL
At the heart of Blue Coyote Motel is a love story beginning in the barrios of Southern California and spanning the globe in such diverse locations as France, South American and the Himalayas. The beautiful Latina, Maria, and her husband, Jeffrey, a scientist fired from a prestigious laboratory, struggle to build a new life in a remote Southern California desert area as owners of the Blue Coyote Motel.
Jeffrey formulates a wonder drug which alleviates stress, anxiety, depression and the unhappiness of the human condition, administering it through the air-conditioning ducts in the motel as he slowly becomes psychotic. Six wayward travelers find their lives much improved, until, like any other drug, it wears off and their lives become a living hell.
When the guests return to the motel, Jeffrey offers them the drug for a fee. Each must make a decision: to continue with it or to stop taking it. The plot twists and turns, creating layers in the story line that never quite allow you to catch up. The reader begins to wonder if there is a spiritual or cosmic force acting which pre-determines our lives.
The story is tight, fast-paced and filled with well-designed, colorful characters – a defrocked priest, a Native American pediatrician, a wealthy couple who own gold mines in South America, a salesman, and a bereaved widow. Each is portrayed in great detail.
As the book nears completion, the reader quickly turns each page to see if Maria will survive? Is there life after Freedom? What happens to each of the guests?
Blue Coyote Motel presents an engaging look at the human frailties in all of us.

I started reading when I was three years old and never stopped. Every penny I earned from babysitting was spent on novels such as Nancy Drew, Cherry Ames and whatever else was the flavor of the month. I’m a gourmet cook, love to entertain, travel and spend time with my husband, my family and my boxer, Rebel.
Although I have written extensively for newspapers, periodicals and other media, Blue Coyote Motel is my first novel. I am currently at work on a sequel as well as in the editing stages of a novel about California politics, an arena I’m very familiar with as my husband is a State Senator.
