"Always going somewhere. Never getting anywhere."

Negative energy haunts the nameless Narrator, who's been on the run for twelve years. A convicted killer on the loose, he has no one left to rely on and no place to call home, so he heads west.

"Those who will remember will say it's all my fault."

He has no control of what he's capable of and does his best to avoid any type of confrontation at all costs.

Words are said, things are done. Friends turn into enemies.

"They call me a monster."

Just as he's about to reach his destination, his past starts catching up quickly.

Praise for Nowhere, AZ:

"Excellent Read! Just when I thought I figured out what was going to happen, it changed on me. I like when that happens. The author was one step ahead of me!"-Dennis, Amazon Reviewer

“I enjoyed Nowhere Arizona very much. It's a unique concept that has a trace of Torchwood in it. It's dark and its fun and makes you think about how you treat yourself and those around you. It's a pretty quick read and would be good for travel. To say it's a new spin on tit for tat would be an understatement. What would you do if the safety of all those around you depended on them treating you benevolently? And at the same time you discover that your whole life is essentially one big lie? When the bodies start to pile up, we start to get some answers to those questions."-Angela, Amazon Reviewer

"Not all books have the ability to engage the reader in a way that makes you constantly try to guess what is really happening. That finds you constantly guessing what is really going on while you’re turning the pages. The author tells a story that takes place both in the present and in the past. Both stories are converging towards the truth of how the main character has become the person that he himself fears and the truth of who he really is. I found it very difficult to put this down because I was always left thinking about what I had just read. My curiosity was so piqued by this story that I had to have the answers, I had to know what was really going on. This is a story that left me wanting to know what the main character's future would be and ready to read about his next adventure if the author produces a sequel."-Paul R. Ryan, Amazon Reviewer

"Nowhere, AZ is quite the read! The author begins by entangling the reader into an unusual set of events which undoubtedly spike an enormous amount of curiosity! One must read on to settle this feeling, but surprisingly, and wonderfully, it doesn't end until the book does. As each new clue emerges, the reader becomes a detective as to the past and present of the main character...the twists, turns, and excitement never seem to end! It would be beneficial to start this book when one has a bit of free time because there is NO putting it down! Definitely a MUST READ!"-Meg, Amazon Reviewer

 Reader's Muse                 Jan 30 Review  


Imagine having a power that resulted in tragedy to people around you that didn’t treat you well and that you had no control over, this would not be a good thing.  Imagine X-men or fantastic 4 powers that were lethal in a world where things like that didn’t exist and the problems that would bring up.  This is what happens to the main character in Nowhere, Az.

The title makes me think of a trip I took with my family took to Arizona and we saw a huge billboard that said “Last gas before Nowhere!!” and there was a huge line for gas.  Just a bit down the road there was this large thriving city called Nowhere.  Too funny.

This book is great.  I definitely recommend reading it.  Come back tomorrow and read an excerpt that gives a great insight into the main character.

I give this book 4 out of 5 clouds.
