Love collides with self-discovery in author MK’s turbulent 1950s novel, “Wasted . . . Maybe” (published by Trafford Publishing).

A story about learning to trust one’s instincts in order to achieve goals, “Wasted . . . Maybe” has been selected for inclusion in the Trafford Publishing Gold Seal program, which recognizes excellence in writing and overall potential.

MK’s story glimpses into the male-dominated 1950s, when men ruled and women attempted to charm their way into comfortable lives. “Wasted . . . Maybe” follows the intertwining lives of male power players caught up by the allure of beguiling women.

Praise for “Wasted . . . Maybe”:

“MK entertains readers with a captivating narrative that includes the actions of Asian thugs, backroom drug trafficking, prostitution, and the sexual proclivities of key figures who haven't come to terms with their closeted lifestyles. A glimpse at this darker side seems a nod to the film noir stylings of early 40's and 50's Hollywood, which oft times includes a criminal element and an undercurrent of moral conflict.”

—Carol Davala, The US Review of Books
