"Night Flight" book signing October 27th at Florey's!

Florey's Book Co. welcomes Pacifica author Alessa Adamo as she signs her new novel "Night Flight".

***Thursday, October 27th, 6-8pm***

About the Book:

Melissa Adams is a middle-age woman living a typical married life in Southern California. But as her marriage unravels she turns to Kathy Murray, the aircraft mechanic she is attracted to despite resisting her attractions to women. Melissa tries to make a new life in San Francisco with Kathy but she is haunted by the rejection of her only daughter and the guilt of giving in to her desires of being with Kathy in a same-sex relationship. Ultimately she believes vindication comes by winning her daughter's love back.

Melissa's obsessive efforts to repair the relationship between her and her daughter finally begin to come together when they agree to meet in the far-off vacation resort of Bangkok. But this supposed vacation only serves to put a bizarre chain of events in motion--events that involve all three of them and start innocently enough, but quickly spiral out of control. It is a trip that can only be taken on the Night Flight. Welcome aboard.

About the Author:

Alessa is in her late 50’s and lives on the coast in a small apartment in the San Francisco Bay Area. She was raised in Rochester, New York and came out west in 1969, settling in California in 1972. She enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in her teens (don’t ask), and was a B-52 crew chief and a C-141 flight engineer over 20 years on active duty and the reserves. She also had a career in selling real estate where she managed a realty office for nearly 20 years. She finally got a BA degree from San Francisco State University in 2006 in English and Creative Writing (going back to school was not easy). Today, Alessa is employed at a small San Francisco nonprofit where she teaches disaster preparedness. And of course, she writes.
