About the Book

Penny has been incarcerated for breaking into a car. Her friend, Clyde, bails her out. Clyde persuades her to join an ashram, on the ‘Hana side’, to get some ‘free rehab’. There, Penny is befriended by a motley crew of counter culture celebrities, also rehabilitating from cocaine abuse. Penny becomes romantically involved with the group’s darling, Armando, and is drawn into working in their pot growing co-op. Halfway to harvest Larry, the money man, decides to start a separate operation. Larry imports Stevie, a master grower from Humbolt. Stevie has perfected a short season strain that will mature at the same time as the ongoing crops. Stevie and his wife, Rebecca, share close quarters with the group. They are made privy to all current growing locations. Larry and Stevie need a new location, for the ‘ninety day wonders’, and partner with Samuel Lee. What no one knows, or suspects, is that Stevie’s plan is to rip off everyone. In one night he cleans out Larry, Armando and Samuel Lee. Samuel Lee goes on a rampage, suspecting everyone but Stevie. Larry winds up getting busted. Penny and Armando are forced to flee the island. They go to Armando’s original home, New York City. They become intrinsically involved in the socially charged art scene, but blind sighting events force them to flee again. This time to India…

About the Author

Shelly Taylor has lived in thirteen states. Her lone wolf status began early on. Due to disruptive behavior, she spent half of first grade under an appliance box with eye holes. Eventually her teacher learned that Shelly was compatible with art supplies. By the end of the year Shelly’s childhood drawings were on display at The Museum Of Natural History in Anchorage, Alaska. Shelly attended sixth grade at Ellis School in Sunnyvale, California. Clearly ahead of her time, Shelly’s favorite classroom attire was torn green tights, pink hot pants and a snakeskin print blouse. Her teacher, Mr Fritz, said, “Maybe it’ll be a trend.” Then he steered her in the direction of Drama Club. Penny played Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz and The Artful Dodger in Oliver. The rival school presented her with a larger than life Oscar colored with metallic gold ink. In her teens she was routinely approached by photographers and artists wanting her to model. For a time she had an agent. In her twenties she was noticed by a notorious Hollywood figure and offered a career. That was before ‘me too’. Shelly refused to trade sex for fame and fortune. She found her niche in restaurant culture. There isn’t much money in it but it is a well known haven for non conformists. She has worked her way through every position and now boasts the honorable title of Chef.
