Neena Laxalt – Some Stories Are Just Too Long
See all stories.
Maggie is a discouraged lawyer, Dillon, a heart-broken vagabond, and Phillip, a frustrated writer. Their stories are told by the mysterious Jillian, part purveyor of spirits and part spiritual guru. Inside the walls of Cafe Rembrandt, we fall under Jillian’s spell as she artfully trails her Ariadne thread to lead her devotees back into the light.
Waking Up at Rembrandt’s is a fresh take on the tale of awakenings. It celebrates the sensual, as well as the spiritual, effortlessly bridging the two worlds. Author Thomas Lloyd Qualls combines prose and poetry, fiction and spirituality, and dreams and reality in a manner that is at once unconventional and irresistible.
Thomas Lloyd Qualls lives and writes in the high desert beauty of Northern Nevada. He is a novelist, essayist, and practicing attorney. He is also a regular contributor to Reno Tahoe Tonight Magazine and to the international online forum Rebelle Society
