March 27, 2012 - PRLog -- Ebook "Nobody's Children" Addresses Difficult Issues of Global Nomads in Private Overseas School

Author J. Celan Smith used personal experience as Third Culture Kid in Malaysia to invent a gripping thriller that drives unique plotline for literary crime story.

Portland, OR, March 27, 2012.--Portland/Asheville author and resident, J. Celan Smith, has published "Nobody's Children," a 325-page novel set in Portland and Malaysia that chronicles the tragic journeys of two siblings faced with the challenge of surmounting a childhood overseas in a secretive boarding school. An important work for those interested in the effects of unusual childhood experience on the adult psyche and the disturbing labyrinth of consequences into which these can lead.

While some stories have been told about the dilemma of international childhoods, this one follows a unique thread into the confusion, bitterness, and despair that such experience can create. Blaise and Mezzanine take different paths beginning with a chilling accident through the discovery of love and the invention of two intense crimes meant to create restitution for the pain they feel.

The first 20% of the ebook "Nobody's Children" can now be sampled for free by the public at Smashwords at:  https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/139789.
