Called by EJ Pay
Book one of The Called Trilogy, written by young adult fiction writer, EJ Pay.
All of her life, a strange but beautiful dream has haunted Evelyn Marin’s sleep. Raised by a protective single mother after her father’s mysterious disappearance years before, Evelyn is ready to leave her Arizona home for college on the east Coast, the Atlantic Ocean pulling her as surely as the tides.
But Florida is not what she expected with her boyfriend’s erratic behavior, a horrible roommate, and an attractive boss. No one and nothing is quite like it seems, leaving Evelyn searching for the answers to so many questions: what happened to her father more than a decade ago? What has been calling her to the Atlantic? And most importantly: who is she, really?
Running away, starting over, “lighting out for the territories,” going BIG. . .
Dudeville is a coming-of-middle-age adventure story about a late-30s corporate dropout turned backcountry snowboarder and mountaineer. Inspired by a wild range of voices – from Whitman, Muir and Twain, to Jack Kerouac, Edward Abbey and Warren Miller – Dudeville charts the spiritual exploration and self-discovery that comes between the trailhead and summit of any big mountain.
Equal parts extreme sports tale, male bonding romp, and reluctant love story, Dudeville is a sensuous, lyrical, exuberant exploration of the American West.
