safari means “long journey"

Mad Mischief is the haunting tale of one woman’s adventure to the edge of her own sanity and an unforgettable testament of her indomitable spirit to survive. Featuring the shimmering beauty and primal power of subSaharan Africa, Sarah embarks on an elite safari with her cantankerous husband, setting the stage for a story of love, deceit, power, obsession and ultimately, escape and redemption.

The word safari means “long journey,” and the story of Mad Mischief tells of one unlike any other---a journey of the heart, mind and spirit. Sarah’s plans to save her marriage with this journey are shattered when, thrown off balance by a dangerous combination of prescription drugs, she struggles to maintain her equilibrium in the face of the callousness of her husband, the sadistic machinations of their safari guide, the unscrupulous actions of a Nairobi shopkeeper, and the enigmatic behavior of a world-renowned photographer who appears almost magically whenever she is in need of a guardian angel.

Mad Mischief is a rare story about a bi-polar, psychotic woman surviving extraordinary stress under unusual circumstances. With its rich tapestry of characters, it is an unforgettable saga of one woman's struggle to find the inner strength to live life on her own terms despite the debilitating effects of two prescribed medications working at cross- purposes and the roguish men aiming to take advantage of her. It offers inspiration and hope that with courage, a person can survive menacing obstacles that challenge them to the core of their being.
