Mother May I?
by Teresa Phelan

Mother May I? is a harrowing new psychological thriller about a woman who finds her life spiraling out of control after she returns from a Mexican vacation. Struggling with post traumatic stress, Lucy agrees to go away for a week of sun and fun with her friends. On the beaches of a resort in Mexico they met an unusual pair of men and several incidents lead to Lucy having a terrible nightmare. In her dream the strange pair of men are chasing her across barren Mexican landscapes and there is no escape. When she wakes panic stricken and sweating, she reassures herself, it is just a dream but she can’t shake the ominous feeling that her dream contains a warning. Back home in Canada, she tells everyone at work about her trip and her dream. In the calm light of day all her fears and conjecture seem crazy until she watches one of these strange men, walk across the parking lot and into her office. As her world begins to unravel, she tries not to succumb to paranoia and fear. With unexpected, riveting twists, Mother May I? is a creepy, mesmerizing, thought-provoking, psychological thriller that you won’t be able to put down. This book digs deep, exploring the grey of right and wrong, the meaning of love, and the intersects that lead to sacrifice, death and healing.

Born on Vancouver Island, and raised in northern central B.C., Teresa Phelan grew up in the bush. A voracious reader, she began writing very early, inspired by authors like J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Louisa May Alcott, moving on to the likes of Stephen King, Harper Lee, and Louise Penny. As a forty-year-old single mother of four, she earned two degrees: an associate degree in Aboriginal Social Work and a master’s degree in Professional Communication. When she’s not busy reading and writing, Teresa can be found sculpting, painting, gardening, and throwing dinner parties for her friends and family. She lives on Vancouver Island with her husband and their two cats, Stinky and Kitty. Mother May I? is her début book.
