Accolades for The Fly Guy:
“From a mind that is no stranger to creativity, we are presented with the lives of multiple people from different worlds that intersect, bringing chaos to their creator. The Fly Guy is a gripping novel that will keep you unsure until the very end.”
BUZZ Magazine, Book Of The Month
“A thrilling and kaleidoscopic psychology experiment, highly recommended reading. Franz Kafka noted that one should only read novels that bite you and sting you. The Fly Guy would have kept him awake at night.” D. L. Pressley
