A Novel for Lovers of Literature

Sostenuto is epic in scale, unique in conception, and utterly absorbing. If you love literature; if you love language; if you love to lose yourself between the covers of a thoroughly engrossing book, then this novel is for you. Save the Harlequin Romance for another day. Give the vampires the week off. You'll be glad you did, and the vampires aren't going anywhere, anyway. They're vampires.

Sostenuto defies conventional categorization. The narrative transcends traditional literary genres, with elements of science fiction, mystery, mythology, thriller, religion & spirituality, historical fiction, and environmentalism.

Sostenuto has been carefully researched. The text is generously footnoted, offering an opportunity for deeper exploration and discovery for those with additional interest.
