In the Mind of Revenge

Winner of the indieBRAG Medallion and 5-Star Foreword Clarion Review

In the Mind of Revenge is a thriller that takes a deep look at how monsters are born. Set in a society that glorifies “normal” and demonizes different, this dark tale takes its readers on an emotionally wild ride of vengeance, murder, pain, and desperation. Though the reader is warned by its main character, Shame, not to develop an attachment, the first person narrative combined with Shame’s uninhibited vulnerability makes it nearly impossible not to do so. Raw, vivid, honest, fast-paced and beautifully vulgar, In the Mind of Revenge is sure to have you emotionally twisted from beginning to end.

“The portrayal of the gender-nonconforming antihero is executed effortlessly and truly places the reader ‘in the mind of revenge’.”
