“I, I can’t get these memories out of my mind
And some kind of madness has started to evolve
I, I tried so hard to let you go
But some kind of madness is swallowing me whole”
She has the only color in this gray world, but she hides it in a tissue in her pocket. Is it worth it to embrace the madness and release the kaleidoscopic dawn? Or float through life in a bliss of brain fog?
In a town where death is served daily on a slice of homemade bread, and tales of two-headed fish and trailer-hitch balls are more profound than the meaning of life; Marianne struggles to find the perfect level of insanity. She thinks she’s got it all figured out…and then her past decides to show up after being gone for ten years.
To feel, or not to feel… that is the question.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Keep It Blue is life as I know it. Whether directly or indirectly, the events and emotions in this novel have often mirrored my own. I grew up along the Oregon Coast and currently live in Portland, Oregon. When I’m not writing, I am working as a fine artist and musician, as well as a mother of two wild boys and as the wife of Benjamin--to whom I've been dynamically and passionately married to for more than a decade. By the ripe age of thirty, I’ve survived three heart surgeries, homelessness, and an ongoing battle managing my level one bipolar disorder. I am the embodiment of a truth that is stranger than fiction, and I believe in hope, comfort, and perfect love for imperfect people.
