RE: Fledermama’s Son, a Novel
Word Count: 47100
I’ve written a novel about a troubled young man and his controlling mother, both searching for their own identity in Eastern Europe. The novel is based on my travels to Post-Communist Romania by train and the people I met along the way. Although I have written several family histories, this is my first novel.
SYNOPSES: Little Kyle with his wiry red hair, always had an identity problem. When he started school, the kids called him Red Ant Head. In his teen years, he tried the punk look. Later, as an art student in his twenties, he tried the Gothic look. He changed his name to Dieter Fledermaus, in honor of Mozart’s operetta. His mother, Susan worries about what kind of man her young son is becoming. She wants to help Kyle find his ethnic identity by taking him along on a journey to her grandmother’s birthplace in Eastern Europe.
MARKET ANALYSIS: My target audience is young adults and mothers who have raised teenagers. The book is thoughtful and insightful, from both points of view. The book also takes the reader through Eastern Europe by train, meeting people who lived through communist times and telling bits of history.
BIO: I am a first generation American on my father’s side, who came from Szatmar, Hungary. My mother was born of immigrant parent from Austria and Hungary. I was born in Los Angeles, California after World War II, one of the first “Baby Boomers.” I earned Degree in Chemistry and in Business, and a Teaching Certificate. I am a member of the Fairhope Writers Forum and Alabama Writhers Conclave.
