When former writer and social recluse Thomas Stone witnesses through his window a violent fight between his neighbor and her boyfriend, the scene ignites memories that, years earlier, inspired his only celebrated novel. Revitalized, he writes what he witnessed and, for weeks after, watches his neighbor ceaselessly, secretly following her when she leaves her home, using her to inform his “fictional” character. But when contact with her is threatened, Thomas panics and begins pulling any strings he can to propel his story—his creation—toward a conclusion on his own terms.
“Krecklow delves deep into the issues of lust, morality, and the mirage of privacy in these
pages—his captivating characters are at once unsympathetic and unflinchingly human.”
-Sara Rauch, Editor, Cactus Heart Press
“Krecklow’s voice clamors for a truth, one which comes from the edges of near misses and modern relationships.” -Jim Warner, Host, Citizen Lit
