Jenny May

by Jonathan Lovejoy

A gifted piano student is tormented by her domineering mother. A story of apocalyptic mother-daughter violence and perversion, as told by the girl’s best friend Maybelline Windsor, a fellow college student who herself is tormented by jealous sorority classmates. Her stark, penetrating voice is a model of epic simplicity, which transcends into a deeply spiritual and poetic picture of dark family secrets, and a history of private mother-daughter pain and suffering.

Born in poverty in the Appalachian Mountains, Maybelline was adopted by a wealthy family named Windsor, raised in million dollar privilege and deep emotional neglect. At her small, mountain university in Asheville, North Carolina, she meets gifted Asian piano student Jennifer May, a promising young prodigy who was brutally trained by her strict and overbearing mother. When Maybelline meets her beautiful, charismatic mother, she is shocked by the reality of behind closed doors truth, and the revelation of unimaginable suburban depravity. Their powerful and disturbing story is a glimpse at the modern mother-daughter dynamic unrestrained, and the latter day rise of hidden family violence and tragedy.



The Mountaineers

by Jonathan Lovejoy

A beautiful young woman is a serial rapist and murderer of other women. A strange, disturbing account by a woman named Raven Moon, who takes out a lifetime of rage on unsuspecting young and older women. Her frustrated, often poetic voice is oddly restrained, with only the hint of a cold-blooded killer’s insanity.

A survivor of extreme childhood abuse and neglect, Raven befriends female college professor Simone Cory and bank teller Chelsea Lynn Baxter, both survivors of similar chilhood trauma and cruelty. Isolated in Black Mountain, North Carolina, their friendship whirls into a perfect storm of rage and regret, as Raven lures the two women deeper into a secret life of kidnapping, rape and murder of wealthy, sophisticated suburban women. In a voice rich with dark truth and revelation, Raven uncovers a story of uncompromising evil, through lives burdened by a history of apocalyptic mother-daughter violence and tragedy.



The Passion Play

by Jonathan Lovejoy

A controversial religious play depicts Christ as a woman. A unique and disturbing glimpse at violence and fanaticism, as told by wealthy suburban mother Mary Sweet, whose daughter was murdered after staging the controversial Passion Play. Mary’s voice is a lonely, ghostly portrait of a mother struggling to come to terms with her daughter’s death, while dealing with the breakup of her twenty five year marriage.

Left to raise her youngest daughter alone, Mary surveys suburban life with unearthly insight, recalling the strange and tragic events surrounding her oldest daughter’s murder. Mary uncovers a story heavy with alarming truths about the dark side of human nature, and the apocalyptic violence and cruelty that men and women are capable of. A deeply poetic, often terrifying glimpse behind the walls of secret, at the evil that churns beneath cultured civility.



Call of an Angry Blackbird

by Jonathan Lovejoy

A gifted composer struggles to survive an abusive marriage. The third book of a unique and deeply emotional memoir by a woman named Carmen Angelina Coletti, a prodigy who was taken out of school when she was twelve years old and isolated from the world. Her simple, honest voice remains the picture of a young and reclusive country wife.

Abused since early childhood, her music is her refuge, with a gift for composition so complete that she is likely the world’s first female great composer, some believing her to be the most gifted composer of all time. This revealing, often disturbing account uncovers the extremes of domestic violence, from inside the life of a woman who was born and raised in isolation, by a mother driven to madness by grief.
