RENO, Nevada (PRWEB) March 13, 2013
Inspired by a true story, Travesty (published by Trafford Publishing) by author Margie Shepherd, tells a mind-boggling story of greed, crime and betrayal.
Travesty chronicles the life of protagonist Margie, a 58 year-old woman who, following breast reconstruction surgery, is abducted her from a plastic surgeon's recovery room by a nurse. Three days later, Margie awakens in a strange hotel room. She later discovers more than $19,000 missing from her checking account, an initial loss that balloons to nearly $3.5 million.
Margie undergoes dogged effort to bring the nurse to justice and retrieve her stolen funds. Her persistent, relentless battles usher in an eclectic cast of characters, including a limo driver, lawyers, police investigators, physicians and bank executives. When the national media finally discovers her plight, Margie lets herself believe the end is finally in sight. But matters of the law rarely go as planned; in the end, will Margie see justice?
Reviews of Travesty:
“Travesty clearly reflects the adversity Margie Shepherd experienced in life and how it did not compromise the very fibers of her inner strength and wisdom. Her unstinting and uncompromising determination to overcome adversity is an inspiration to us all.”
—Arthur Marvin, owner of Business Seminars for Success
“Travesty is truly a testament to the strongest most resilient woman I have ever known. A weaker person could not have endured the many trials and tribulations as Margie Shepherd.”
—Eryk Hanut, author, writer and television producer
“Margie Shepherd has become a positive role model and shows us that we need to put the power back in the hands of the individual rather than the superficial external solutions we see so much these days.”
—Marc Mulry, owner/president of Centered Films
At the completion of Travesty, Shepherd hopes readers take away a singular message – never give up.
“The word ‘no,’ does not exist,” says Shepherd. “The statement ‘it cannot be done’ does not exist. Keeping your focus on the positive is the key to a major part of success. In the world of today, I cannot stress strongly enough we all must keep on going.”
