Independent Author Index (IAI): What is your book about?
Mark Barry (MB): A recently released mental patient develops a relationship with a much younger wildlife conservation student earning her tuition fees behind a bar in the beautiful and prosperous town of Wheatley Fields. The relationship between the two, often beautiful and touching, deepens until other parties ensure the unlikely liaison ends in a brutal and tragic conclusion.
Bravely written from the point of view of the ex-mental patient, unflinching in its honesty, almost comedic in parts, Carla is a dark romance and a love story for the modern age.
