Writing in the Margins

In Writing in the Margins, the lives of Jack Mueller and John Rubaker unknowingly intertwine through the juxtaposition of fiction and reality. Both write in journals as a type of therapy; Jack needs to understand the unwanted changes in his life, and John grapples with his inadequacies and depression.
The journal entries change from a healing mechanism to nothing short of miraculous. Suddenly, wishes written down come true. Words create reality. Words create life changes. In a twist reminiscent of Walter Mitty, the characters live in medieval times, the Elizabethan era, and in the 1920s.
Extraordinary twists and turns take the reader on an unforgettable adventure of the mind. This intriguing tale blurs the boundaries of fiction and reality, and asks the reader whether one is better than the other.
