The Journal Of Nicholas The American
by Leigh Kennedy
College student Nicholas Dal shares the family talent, or curse - he is a tele-empath, a man who experiences the emotions of other people. Too-powerful emotion can induce seizures. To stay sane he must live alone and dull his senses with vodka. In the past the ability has led to insanity, persecution and murder, but now a psychiatrist is on Nicholas' tail and his feelings for a fellow student threaten to break through his isolation. Will he risk his love, his sanity and his life to be with Susanne on her journey past the edge of existence?
