From Zena Livingston, author of “The Money God,” comes a new novel, “Psychotic Skank” (published by AuthorHouse), that follows the intriguing exploits of one woman who will stop at nothing in the pursuit of wealth, social status and great sex.
Set in Long Island, N.Y., “Psychotic Skank” centers around the misadventures of Vicki, a stay-at-home mother tired of her routine. Vicki’s wandering eye sets itself on Todd - the handsome, married next door neighbor - and the two begin an illicit affair that defies all rational judgment.
Both Vicki and Todd leave their spouses, but with child support and alimony, Todd is unable to give into Vicki’s financial demands. Vicki sets off down a road of moral deprivation and decadence as she relentlessly pursues the financial gain and sexual satisfaction she has always wanted.
“Psychotic Skank” reminds readers to be wary of the people they choose to work or socialize with. Livingston describes this as a “buyer beware” lesson, stressing the importance of accurately appraising a person before becoming involved with them.
“The most important aspect that I want readers to take away from reading my book is enjoyment,” writes Livingston. “In addition, I would like the reader to see the underlying messages and to be aware of people like Vicki who are everywhere in our society.”
