BOOK REVIEW

by Dennis Moore

Nothing is Predictable, by Adalina Mae

Adalina Mae, born in Los Angeles and with roots in Lebanon, has written an intriguing and insightful book about a complex woman named Zara that seems to center around her troubled and now deceased father. She speaks lovingly of her father, but shares intimate details of her childhood and relationship with her father that seems to reflect her current life. She speaks of therapy sessions brought about by early childhood experiences, some of which were quite troubling.

Sheryl Scarborough’s bio notes, “My work has appeared in just about every medium you can imagine, from TV scripts (including “Dirtysomething” for Disney’s Darkwing Duck!) to series concepts, comic books, children’s books, business plans and magazine articles. I have written theater and restaurant reviews in exchange for great seats and free food. I have even been a ghost-writer for a celebrity, which is more work and less haunting than it sounds. Now, I’m writing what I truly love, which are YA thrillers and mysteries with a forensic twist.” See Christine’s review of To Catch a Killer on our website.
