A tale for both adult and child alike. Born between Silent Night and a prayer, in the church of St. Augustine, Nog, a melted-buttery-eyed muse, far from the beautiful goddesses of legend (more like a story told by some muse who was full of herself), finds his life turned upside down when his vessel, Danny, the man he was born to inspire, is killed. But what or who killed him? And why and how? Where man strives for his God, a muse strives for his vessel. But what happens when that muse’s vessel is gone? Most go to Rhapsody, an Eden-like sanctuary. Yet when Danny’s wife gives birth to a daughter, only days after his death, Nog feels compelled to stay in this world to try and teach the child about her daddy through her daddy’s songs. While other muses don’t understand him, and call what he’s doing unnatural, this Christmas muse forges on into an unpredictable future of mysterious signs and “oddballish” concoctions amid the unforeseen dangers this world holds for a muse on his own. Left with only a fractured guitar and a ghost’s friendship, Nog discovers not only the unexpected joys after a broken heart ... but a truer sense of what it means to inspire.Biographie de l'auteur :
