Combine that with my feeling that there is nothing worse than the sexual abuse of a woman or child and you have the two prime notions that inspired me to write Love Stings.Another touchstone was Russell Crowe’s character in the movie LA Confidential.

It’s a powerful performance, perfectly capturing a very flawed man, but one made noble and empathetic by his compulsion to rush to the aid of any man who abuses a woman.As I think more about it, the real genesis of the story was just an image that popped into my mind one bright summer day of a young woman walking along the path surrounding a cranberry bog behind my house here on Cape Cod. She seemed mysterious to me, although I don’t know exactly why. I knew immediately that she was a beekeeper and that she carried a deep and abiding sadness.Love Stings is an exploration of the source of that sadness mingled with a noirish plot laced with suspense and sexual tension.In terms of books that might have influenced the way that I told this story, I think Josephine Hart’s Damage, which explored similar themes, had an impact, particularly stylistically, inspiring a leaner prose style than is my usual habit.You’ll also learn a lot about beekeeping in this novel, as I’ve intertwined the main character’s occupation intimately with the themes of the novel and included lots of interesting information about the techniques, myth, and history of the art of tending bees.This story is a tragedy, but one, I think, redeemed by language and love.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.An erotic thriller by the author of Acapella Blues -- Love Stings is a sunlit noir set on Cape Cods beaches and in Connecticuts toney suburbs.The story: Elizabeth Jane Berg, a refugee from her own childhood, is a beekeeper leading a quiet life on Cape Cod. She’s tormented by painful memories and suppressed anger. When she meets Monica, a mysterious woman without a past, a vessel brimming with desire and ambition, Elizabeth begins to unravel. A fuse is lit triggering a devious plot that spirals out of control and ultimately ensnares Elizabeth and her whole family in an all consuming tragedy.The Beginning:Father will be here soon.I am prepared now, at last.My mind is quiet now, finally.So opens Love Stings, as Elizabeth Jane Berg, a refugee from her own childhood, recounts the plan, the plot, she initiates after she meets Monica, a woman without a past, who has killed Elizabeths little brother and is about to sleep with her father.
