Boyfriend from Hell
Falling Angels Saga Book One
By E Van Lowe

Genre: Paranormal YA

Aww, Hell No!

Fifteen year-old Megan Barnett and her single mom, Suze, have a special relationship—they are friends, close friends, who do almost everything together.
“But come on, guys, she’s my mother… Can I really tell her that while we’re snuggled up on the sofa watching Spider Man Three, I’m secretly undressing James Franco with my eyes?  Of course not…”
The special bond takes a turn for the worse when Suze decides to start dating again.  She hasn’t had a man in her life since Megan’s father left ten years ago. 
Enter two mysterious young men, Megan’s new classmate, sinfully attractive bad boy, Guy Matson, and the dangerously handsome art dealer, Armando.  Before long Megan and Suze both wind up in steamy relationships.  But neither of the handsome guys is quite what he seems.  In fact, one of them is Satan, with his sights set on a new bride.  Megan has precious little time to figure out how to stop him.  If she doesn’t, either Megan or Suze are quite literally going to HELL.

And Now For a Special Guest Post 


Song For My Father

The 1965 Jazz classic, Song For My Father, was written by pianist Horace Silver as an homage to his father.  Silver’s father had a great effect on the man he became.  Like Horace Silver, I owe my father a great deal.  I owe my writing career to him.  No, he didn’t inspire me to become a writer; instead, his inspiration came as a challenge to me when I was nine or ten years old.

It was at that age my local library in the Bronx, New York allowed kids to have their own library cards.  Having my own library card was a big deal to me.  A very big deal. That library card catapulted me into the ranks of Big Kids, for I no longer had to go to the library with my mother. 

As soon as I got my card I took out the maximum six books form the library.  When I walked home with all my books cradled in my arms that day, I felt my load of books screaming to my friends and neighbors “E. Van Lowe is no longer a baby.  Big Kid over here.”

I kept the books for the obligatory two weeks, took them back and got six more.  This went on for several months until one day my father (who was off work) stopped me as I was leaving the apartment.  “You didn’t read those books,” he said.

“Yes, I did.”

“No.  I’ve been watching you.  You may have thumbed through one or two, but you didn’t read any of them.”  And then he made the challenge.  “This time, why don’t you take out only two books and read them.”

You can imagine how upset I was.  I got a special feeling carrying those six books home every two weeks.  What kind of message would two books send:  “Look at that.  E. Van Lowe’s a weakling.  He can only carry two books.”  Fortunately for me, I was a dutiful kid and did what my father suggested—I only took out two books.  When I got home I read one of them.  I mean, I actually read it.  The book still had its share of pictures in it, but I found the story in the book mesmerizing.  I read it cover-to-cover.  I enjoyed it so much, I read it again.  Who knew reading could be so much fun?

The book was entitled Horse On A Houseboat.   I don’t remember the title of the second book I took out, don’t remember if I finished it.  What I still remember to this day, However, is that Horse On A Houseboat started my love affair with books.  It was a year or so later I decided I not only wanted to read books, I wanted to write them, too.

This post is my song for my father.  “Hey, Dad, I couldn’t have had the wonderful life I have without your little challenge.”  Look at me.  Today I am an author.  On December 15th the latest in The Falling Angels Saga, Heaven Sent, will be available for sale.  It’s no Horse On A Houseboat, but who knows, maybe some young person will pick it up one day and it will begin their love affair with books.
