Deborah Gaal abandoned her love of theater to take over the family flooring business and ended up running a wholly-owned subsidiary of DuPont. After leaving DuPont, she coached entrepreneurs and corporate executives and created and guided leadership seminars for women. Finally, she returned to her dream of living a creative life by writing. Her first novel, The Dream Stitcher, was named a finalist in Debut Fiction for the 2018 National Jewish Book Awards and won the IndieReader Discovery Award in literary fiction. Synchronicities on the Avenue of the Saints delves with subjects of love, acceptance, and the importance of connection. How does the weight of the past lead to awareness and expansiveness in the present? And when can everyday magic step in to help? Physicist Noah Friedman is bipolar and is racing against time before the experimental drug he takes steals his mind, then his life. His deranged psychiatrist aims to clear $10 million on the sale of this drug and has become Noah's enemy. As Noah starts his quest to free himself from the drug and the doctor, he soon finds himself with a coterie of odd compatriots: Noah's burnt-out and misguided but loving mom, Sally; an African shaman mentor who steers Noah on the path; Noah's failed journalist-friend Fleck; and a Russian Revolution-era ghost who demands Noah right an old wrong--or else. Can Noah right the wrongs of his ancestors in time to heal himself, save his mother, and also prove that love creates synchronicity with what and who is loved? Join Deborah Gaal and me on Tuesday, March 2, 10 - 11 A.M. CT US. We will be having a conversation about her remarkable life's journey and Synchronicities on the Avenue of the Saints.
