Serene works in a New York City art gallery. She handpicked this life, yet she can’t stomach it. She knows there is something not only wrong with her existence but also with the world in which we live. Social discord and saddening chaos are like two hands tightening around her throat. When her overbearing boss forces her to attend a lavish party in France to land a sale, she winds up in a living nightmare.
Serene encounters the Countess—a wicked manifestation of dark energy that humankind has been working hard to create, in spite of ourselves. She is our fear, anger, hurt, and self-destruction all in one. Her physical form is a beautiful six-foot-tall cancer wrapped in couture and always hunting you.
Serene’s story is also one of love. She falls for James, a man birthed from a lineage of opera singers who have all committed suicide. Serene meets a rainbow of energy. The first, being an unearthly, cuttlefish that envelopes her with a symphony of color, light and sound. Immersed in deep turquoise waters and even deeper inside of the cephalopod. She feels it contract and expand with every beat of her heart. She is birthed both physically and spiritually—and so her journey begins.
Equal parts HARRY POTTER, and GOSSIP GIRL, SERENE is a never before told story. The first to merge the contrasting worlds of art/pop culture and spirituality in a riveting tale that, above all, is a celebration of human capability, living and loving without boundaries or fear.
