Yenom, is based on a journey I took from New Zealand to Europe with a group of artists. That trip, a long time ago, is like a dream, hard to believe at times. I strive for that “dream reality” in my painting and my writing - so real it seems unreal, or so unreal yet somehow real.
Seth, the main character in Yenom, is a budding artist, looking for that magic. When he arrives in Limburg he gets more than he bargained for. The artist friends he meets up with, insist they don't know him. Well, it's all a joke, isn't it. No, it is more than that. Someone or something has tampered with people’s memories. He plays detective trying to find out what has happened. There is a script to be published. Maybe the answer is in there.
Limburg, where he is staying, is a wonderful, aesthetically beautiful place - of the future, maybe - like another world. Seth is lulled into the local ways and forgets his concerns – people change from day to day, that's OK.
There are two women in his new life, mother and daughter; they have special powers, and Seth feels special in their presence. They know a thing or two. They know a thing or two alright, which jogs Seth's memory, and he's thinking , what the hell am I doing here.
It is winter, a freezing northern winter, forest white and lifeless, birds flown south, and he must return home. If only he knew where home was...
The BISAC code for Yenom is, Magical Realism.
Yenom can also be classified, Speculative Fiction.
Some might say, there is no magic in this story, it's just that some happenings are yet to happen.
