GHOST TOWN, NM

NEELAN PATEL (PITA), the obstinate Indian American father of AMISHA, insists his daughter marry the rich but foolish RAKISH LAGHARI. But AMISHA loves JUAN ARAVALO, a Mexican American boy. Soon illusion and reality, past and present, serious and absurd all mix when the young lovers escape to a New Mexico ghost town commune. They are pursued by her parents, RAKISH and a motley crew of amateur sleuths-cum-videographers.

Author Bio:
I was born and raised in Cardiff, Wales. I emigrated to the United States, receiving my MA and PhD from UCSB. I taught English studies and creative writing at CSU, Chico. I am a multiple national and international award-winning screenplay writer. I also have won awards for my stage plays and novels.

I love to explore and write, in serious and comic forms, stories of those who, through choice or happenstance, find themselves strangers in a strange land (or even in their own land).
