A successful black executive working for one of America's fortune 500 corporations happens to listen to a song while in his office. The song has a haunting effect over him that ultimately motivates him to commit a failed suicide attempt. He's asked to check himself into a mental clinic for a 30 day observation.
Take Me Home DELVES into the world of Michael Gabriel, a seemingly jubilant, carefree guy whose life goes through a dramatic chain of events as he does battle with the ghosts from his past. Ghosts who have come back with a vengeance. Enter Katherine Francis, his psychiatrist and once former high school class mate who feels partially responsible for Michael's damaged mental state.
Take Me Home takes the reader on a journey that most individuals would rather not face, nor discuss openly amongst others -- Mental Illness. I've been moved to show this is a disease that doesn't discriminate on the basis of gender, age or race.
Find out the answer to this haunting question: How do you find your way home if you don't remember where it is?
My approach to writing Take Me Home is unique as the title of each chapter are actual songs from artist like Phil Collins, Sting, Janet Jackson, etc. I want the reader to listen to each song while they read each chapter to get a full experience into the mindset of the lead character.
