Jane Eltonabout this book: Excerpt
"You're a big girl, Erika," said Dr. Noguchi. What's the problem?"
"I'm … confused. I'm not sure what to do with my life. I'm lonely." Her eyes misted.
The half hour was up. "I appreciate you've been honest with me, Erika, and I'm sure I can help you. Would you like to return next week?"
She nodded. "How many meetings do you think I'll need?"
Henry smiled. "Not many." He leaned forward. "I love jazz. Would it be all right if I came to hear you sing?"
She blushed and grinned. Her eyes sparkled. "That's cool!"
Later, the lights dimmed and she made her appearance in Afro garb. She had a beautiful voice, and the arrangement for each of the four songs she sang resulted in loud and long applause.
Securing a backstage escort, "I loved your performance," said Henry. "We can spend the evening getting acquainted, and then get a marriage license in the morning."
The manager stared in disbelief. "Who the fuck are you?"
"Her fiancé," said Henry. "Get your coat, Erika."
She stood frozen, her mouth open.
Henry looked at his watch. "I need to introduce you to my sister Lillian sitting out front, and then take you to my parents' home before they go to bed."
What kind of joke is this?" she asked. "You can't be serious!"
"I've never been more serious in my life," said Henry. He then gave Erika his most assuring smile. "This is going to be great!"
• What is this book about?
This book is about road rage. Henry is a psychiatrist who quietly suffers overwhelming emotional pain caused by what he believes to be his mother's deception. He releases his anger and frustration by engaging in dangerous and aggressive driving. He infuriates a motorist who follows him home and the next day carries a gun as he follows Henry's wife and child.
• What Inspired You to Write This Book?
I want to write a series about an interesting family, so I created the Noguchi family. Henry is a psychiatrist with a multi-racial family of a Black wife and two children; brother Edwin, Jr. is an accountant, sister Lillian is a university librarian married to a Black Jewish jazz musician, sister Beatrice is a cardiologist, and father Edwin, Sr. is a superior court judge. I want to bring all family members and their children to life in adventurous stories. Stories pending.
