My first novel, The Delusionist, is set in Post-Katrina New Orleans. Twenty-seven-year-old social misfit Jeremy Lagoir is desperate to leave his Spiritualist mother’s house, but when she bombs her audition for a reality TV show about mediums—their last chance to save their flood-damaged home—he’s forced to stay and take the starring role. While Jeremy loses himself in his new medium persona, the show’s producer has an obsession of his own: exposing Jeremy’s fraudulence.
