PORTLAND, Ore. – Dec. 18 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Gehla Knight, author of the newly-released, “Buzzard Love” (ISBN: 0-595-67761-4) entices readers with quirky characters and mysterious story lines.
Knight captures the readers’ attention from the start. Josie Wallgood, the main character in “Buzzard Love,” is marooned in an Oregon trailer park – stuck in a seemingly dead-end life. She has dubbed herself “Madame Josephina,” a fortuneteller spinning tales for the gullible.
While Wallgood scrapes by on meager cash that she brings in from her naive clients, she dreams of greater fame and fortune. Her aspirations are realized when she is hired by a trusting, backwoods, heiress to exorcise the spirit of her father, Max, who was killed in action during the Korean War. Now, Josie is convinced that she is on the path to the “Bigs of Psychic Showbiz.”
To pull the big score off, Wallgood teams up with Cain Reeves, a washed-out minor league catcher, and the two hatch a plot to bilk the heiress out of the family fortune.
Just when Madame Josephina’s psychic star seems to be rising, there is an eerie blip on the astral screen. All of a sudden, Wallgood’s cornball predictions start coming true. The missing pieces to a 25-year mystery in her client’s past begin to fall into place.
Is Madame Josephina really on the path to celestial stardom, or is she just another footnote in the Psychic Hall of Fame?
Knight’s works have been published by ACE Books, and appeared nationally in Phoenix Magazine and Redbook. She has also served as technical and script consultant for Fox-Regency Film Productions. A fifth-generation Oregonian, she is active in community theatre and preservation of pioneer history.
Knight lives in Portland where she manages a trial consulting practice and continues to write mysteries and quirky tales on the Northwest scene.
