Markos Adams is a famous jazz guitarist, but he’s not famous for his fancy chops, homemade baklava or leading man good looks.

After a heavily publicized suicide attempt, Markos is trying to get his life and mind back in order. But the morning after his return to the stage, his worst nightmare is realized when his daughter, Jessie, is abducted.

In Eleni Papanou‘s thriller “Jessie’s Song” the kidnapper contacts Markos with the horrifying terms of the ransom. Markos must identify his daughter’s kidnapper within twenty-four hours, but if he fails, he must commit suicide.

As Markos races the clock to unmask the kidnapper, he begins to question his sanity as he experiences visions of Jessie singing to him. Is Markos slowly descending into madness, or is he the victim of a sadistic criminal act that will force him to face his biggest fear: that he’ll die before seeing his precious daughter again.

Is being creative now a mental illness? Indie author Eleni Papanou was alarmed by an article she read recently. As she later blogged

The war against the individual is moving forward at full speed, and the creatives are next on the list of being targeted for having a mental deficit. As a creative, I see this as dangerous. Equating creative people as having any kind of deficit is the first step to inventing a new mental illness.

A study was conducted on creatives who were put through a series of tests. The creatives scored lower at identifying a large letter that was composed of smaller ones that were of a different letter. Creatives were deemed as having a deficit because there was no difference in the way both creatives and non-creatives shifted their focus from tree to forest level focus. The test doesn’t demonstrate any deficit. All it shows is that we’re all different in how we act and perceive things.

    Great interview, Eleni. I especially liked the way you defined visionary fiction: evolution of consciousness/evolving from the inside.
