'Painted from Memory,' delivers the mind-bending concept of altering reality through the combined energy of an artist’s paintings and the human spirit.

In Dean Michael Zadak’s new paranormal novel, “Painted from Memory” (published by iUniverse), an artist seeking true love must navigate through a confusing alternative dimension while eluding a selfish force intent on using time to fuel her obsession with him.

Mickey Anderson’s beachscapes and seascapes draw patrons so deeply into his work that they swear they can hear the waves crashing and feel the sun on their face. But now, someone is using Mickey’s paintings to alter reality. He must harness his artistic energy to create the perfect life with his childhood sweetheart and family or be forced to live out his life with a manipulative, mind controlling, heartless woman.

An excerpt from “Painted from Memory”:

“Like a cartoon character, Mickey rubbed his eyes, hoping clarity and order would return. ‘Yeah. Sure. Uh, I’ll be down there in a minute … I’m gonna grab a beer,’ he tried to shout, but his voice never got above a loud whisper. His mouth hung open as he stared back at the painting on the easel. He wasn’t sure, but something looked different. Had he painted her and then simply forgotten?”

“Painted from Memory,” delivers the mind-bending concept of altering reality through the combined energy of an artist’s paintings and the human spirit.
