Author's New Novel, The Storymaker, Selected as Quarter finalist in Amazon's Breakthrough Novel Competition
 

-  Moving Tale Relates How Storytelling Helps One Family Cope with Tragedy and Loss.

Jeff Katzman's new novel, The Storymaker, is an inspiring story told within the context of loss, suffering and trauma that relates how one family learns to cope, and even thrive, in very difficult times. The novel is available now on Amazonhttp://www.amazon.com/The-Storymaker-Jeff-Katzman/dp/0982925603/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1363886876&sr=8-5&keywords=katzman.

Chosen as a Quarterfinalist from more than 5,000 submissions in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Competition, one reviewer had this to say about The Storymaker:
'This is an exquisite piece of writing with a unique style rich in natural eloquence and aplomb. It is intense and provocative, probing and compelling. I appreciated in particular the fluidity of the narrative, the depth in characterizations and the nuance and authenticity of the dialogue.'

The main character of The Storymaker, Martin, has shut himself off from life. Too many people he loved have left him: his wife, his mother, his father and his best friend. Once a fearless adventurer and world traveler, he now works in a mind-numbing federal job, raising his two children on his own. A severe accident serves as a wake-up call. To calm his young children, he creates a story of a distant land stirring from somewhere deep within him. His next-door neighbor Jane joins in the ritual, slowly becoming a part of their family. As Martin's own story unfolds, the tale he tells his children mirrors the new energy, new life and new future he begins to discover.

Drawing upon his experience as a psychiatrist specializing in human attachment, Katzman creates a tale readers will relate to and find hard to put down as they follow the main character's evolution through the healing power of storytelling.
