It's Here!! On the cover of new novel "Homing Instincts"

"Mystic Country Farmhouse" -  2008 - oil original (SOLD)
now on the cover of the new novel, "Homing Instincts" by Karen Guzman

I just got my copy...and WOW! I'm loving this story!  Here's a quick intro from the back cover: "Seth Hingham, a young wildlife biologist, is struggling to put his life back together after his news anchor girlfriend walks out on him and his beloved father dies.  When he returns to his Connecticut hometown, old ghosts pop up, as Seth's cousin proposes a plan to honor the memory of a high school classmate killed in a long ago accident for which Seth has always felt responsible.  At the same time, changing family dynamics in the wake of his father's death are toppling the old status quo.  While Seth tries to figure out who he is and where he belongs, a spirited, yet fragile, single mother offers him a chance at love.  

An unforgettable story of loss, change and transcendence, Homing Instincts heralds the arrival of a remarkable new voice in fiction. "

And now, allow me to introduce the author to you, Karen Guzman.  She has worked as a journalist at the Hartford Courant in Hartford, CT, and the News and Observer in Raleigh, NC. She holds an MFA from George Mason University and a journalism degree from Boston University.  Guzman works as a writer for the Yale School of Management. 

She found my work online....and contacted at that point, wanting this painting "Mystic Country Farmhouse" on her cover.  The story takes place right in this area of southeastern CT.  I'm deeply into the story now, really enjoying this character in familiar territory! I think there will be a few late nights for me...I can't wait to see how the story ends!
