About The Book and Author Sample Excerpt eBook

About The Book...Why Historical Fiction?

Historical Fiction allows an author to present a certain event, time period or person from a particular perspective. Understanding Mozart's background, upbringing, lifestyle and impressions of the world around him can give you a fairly clear picture about why he made certain decisions or acted in a certain way.

Reading about a particular event from a unique perspective can also help us relate to it better. An example from Mozart's life is his 3 years spent in London as the guest of King George, He was tutored and highly influenced by none other than Johann Christian Bach, who at the time was Queen Charlotte's musical tutor. In this book, many of Mozart's interactions with Royalty in London and with JC Bach himself are elaborated on through the eyes of fictitious persons who might have been involved in the actual story.

When I was a child, I read all kinds of fiction, and what I loved most about these stories was that they allowed me to step into others' shoes -- an Indian boy, a pioneer girl, a medieval knight -- and to reflect on choices and dilemmas I would thankfully never have to face in real life. All kinds of fiction serves this purpose, but particularly historical fiction, because the lives portrayed in historical fiction are further outside one's scope.

I hope you enjoy the book as much as I enjoyed writing it. 350 pages

Looking for a great fun read? Then you MUST get a copy of Mick's novel.
It's fun, historical fiction centered around Mozart. You can't pass up squeezing in your reading for the last few weeks of summer!

I read this book earlier this summer on a vacation. It was the perfect getaway book.
I was rapt as I turned each page faster than the previous. It was an enthralling read that kept me wanting more and more,
until a spectacular firework explosion of an ending. I highly recommend it!

Such a well written creative book... I found myself reading slower towards the latter half because I didn't want the story to end!

A great idea... it is a really fun read, not like any other ! A surreal departure into seperate reality
romance, set in theatrically timeless, literary living color, historic music, classic musing, and of course, Mozart.
A bit of mind and time bending to mend the imagination.
