About this title


"A psychological thriller. . . richly drawn characters. . . an innovative, powerfully motivational novel."
--Dr. Michael J. Hurd, psychologist and nationally syndicated talk show host

What happens when your work and your love clash with your deepest ideals?

Leon Skillman is a rich and renowned sculptor. Cynical, smart, handsome, and glib, he's the darling of socialites, the press, art critics, and gossip columnists. But when he meets Tara Niforous, a gorgeous Greek-American archeologist, his smug and serene existence is shattered,and conflicts long buried in his soul boil to the surface.

Tara is an idealist who lives for her ancient bronze and marble "gods." But she falls irresistibly in love with Leon, who looks and acts like one in the flesh.

Meanwhile, Dimitrios Kokonas--Tara's older employer at the museum where she works--has for years been secretly in love with his beautiful protégé. Intensely romantic, yet painfully shy, Dimitrios vows at last to reveal his passion to Tara. . .

. . . but now must challenge a young god for the woman he adores.

Set in Greece, Turkey, Palm Beach, and Manhattan, Crosspoints is unlike any romantic suspense novel you have read. It explores not only the tangled conflicts of the human heart, but the clashing values that lie at their core. It's an unforgettable love story that simultaneously unveils the hidden worlds of art, architecture, and high society--worlds where the rare quest for noble ideals must overcome the raw pull of sex, drugs, money, fame...and sometimes, of love itself.

Crosspoints is a story about choices--not just the choices faced by three strong-willed people ensnared in a classic romantic triangle, but the kind of choices we all face...and their profound consequences for our own lives.

From the Inside Flap:

Set primarily in New York’s glamorous and ever controversial art world, CROSSPOINTS is the story of one sculptor’s struggle to regain or reject the artistic and idealistic visions of his youth. Leon Skillman is rich and famous, cynical and smart. Handsome and glib, he is the darling of socialites, the press, art critics and gossip columnists. It is his introduction to Tara Niforous, Greek-American archeologist, that disrupts his smug existence, bringing his art into conflict because of his unanticipated love for her.

Tara lives for her ancient bronze and marble "gods" but falls irresistibly in love with Leon, who looks and acts like one in the flesh. Tara’s older Greek employer and nautical department head of Athens’s National Archeological Museum, Dimitrios Kokonas, is silently and profoundly in love with Tara, who was previously his protégé and is now his colleague. Intensely romantic but painfully shy about love, he vows to come out in the open at last and fight for her.

Settings in Greece, Turkey, Palm Beach and Manhattan provide exotic backgrounds for explorations into archeology, high society, sex, drugs, money, family, fame, art and love. Characters include socialites, painters, sculptors, and art critics and dealers. Contemporary and traditional art forms, ancient Greece and present-day America, free will and determinism, and reason and mysticism are explored within the framework of a love triangle that must be resolved between Tara and the two men who love her.

The story is about choice—the many choices offered to various characters in the novel, as they are offered to each of us in real life. Kostas Niforous (Tara’s Greek-born father) calls these moments of choice "Crosspoints," as he tries to teach his rebellious sixteen-year-old daughter, Kally, his lessons about life. Hence, the novel’s thematic title, CROSSPOINTS A Novel of Choice, comes to life on every page.
