Flotsy is cursed.
Dark, violent visions assault her dreams, visions that foresee the future. For a young girl in a small fishing village this is taboo. At seventeen, she boards a bus to somewhere no one knows of her and her curse. The city is at once alarming and exciting, and her visions are quiescent for a time. All too soon, they erupt again, and she is driven from place to place craving that short respite when she first arrives.
At last she finds a modicum of peace in the Arizona desert, but her fragile tranquility is shattered by the sudden appearance of Joe, also cursed: he must do whatever the voice in his head demands, and it now demands that he join forces with Flotsy. They must thwart a powerful, psychotic man from stealing the water of a vital aquifer. Abruptly, Flotsy is shattered by a vision. An entity immobilizes her with its intensity and extreme need to make itself understood. Worse, its plea is intertwined with Joe’s absurd demand.
Flotsy sees things she can’t control; Joe does things he can’t control. What could they possibly do together?

PEGGY HOGAN has lived in different places, challenged herself with a variety of careers, and travels where she hopes to find something unusual. With a degree in English and a lifelong passion for the written word, it was a simple segue to create fantasy fiction where different, challenging, and unusual is expected at every turn.
She is the award-winning author of 'For a Song,' in which a minstrel stumbles upon an entire race of people that needs saving. In 'Milo’s Burden,' a young boy inspires others to make it right, no matter the cost. 'Flotsy,' the title and protagonist of her latest novel, has dark, violent visions—visions that foresee the future. Some might call it a gift but Flotsy calls it a curse. Hogan is currently working on her next story and can hardly wait to see how it ends.
About writing, Hogan says: “Writing can transport me to a state of Zenlike oneness. It’s like, suddenly and momentarily, everything is right with the world. I become a conduit for the story that the characters must tell. Nothing is better than that.” Visit her at peggyhoganauthor.com.
