For most of her adult life, Cecily Ross has compared herself to other women—and come up short. After a painful divorce from her emotionally abusive husband, Cecily returns to her hometown of Canyon, Texas, looking to heal.

With help from her father, a support group, and an old friend who guides her to see her own strengths, Cecily may have a shot at overcoming her insecurities and learning to love again.

The true test comes when tragedy strikes, opening Cecily's eyes to the harmfulness of her distorted views on beauty—and giving her the perfect opportunity to find peace at last.

Inspired by true events, Don't Cross the X is a heartbreaking story of a woman's tragic life after crossing paths with the local witch.

In 1919, twenty-two-year-old Pearl Hayes leads a blessed life with her husband and two sons in rural South Carolina. But when she crosses a large X etched into the dirt near a local blackberry field, she comes to find that she has entered into the realm of a force of evil she has no hope of stopping. Slowly, her life deteriorates, and through her misery she knows who is to blame: Hazel Sullivan—who is known, to the town of Walterboro, as a witch.

Eighty-two years later, in 2001, Pearl Hayes can no longer remember her past—all that she knows is the grief and longing she feels deep in her wounded heart. Then, when her estranged great-granddaughter and great-great-granddaughter come to visit her at her nursing home, the memories of her prior life come rushing back to her. At the end of her harrowing life, Pearl is desperate to tell her story to what is left of her family, and to deliver a warning: that the evil that took her life from her will come to take theirs, too.

Evocative, poignant, and heartbreaking, Don't Cross the X illustrates the indomitable strength of the human spirit in the face of despair....

Technicolour Dreamin' In Her Own Fashion Written by Karen Moller
 
Published by Olympia Publishers

31/05/2018 - £10.99 – Paperback 

ISBN:978-1-84897-987-1

Categories:Autobiography / 20thCentury History

"In Technicolour Dreamin', Karen Moller has given us a personal and critical history of the counter-culture, from beatnik San Francisco and New York, to hippie Paris and London, to Fluxus, to the feminist and fashion revolutions, to the aftermath of it all. This is a delightful memoir by an artist and designer who has seen it all and done it all and who took good notes and thought hard about what it meant, all along the way."

William Niederkorn - composer, playwright, NY journalist

 

"An exhilarating first-person gallop through more than thirty Summers of Love, plenty of insider hanging out and anecdotes with artists like Yves Klein painting women blue, not to mention Corso, Burroughs and Warhol. Over the course of three decades, Karen met pretty much every hip personality that defined the times."

Paris Blog by Matthew Rose

 

Karen was a witness and participant in the 1960s political protests and ecological, sexual and feminist revolutions that liberalized society and changed not only the way we dress but the way we think. In her third year of art school in Canada, inspired by Kerouac's On the Road, she took off hitchhiking to San Francisco where she met Ferlinghetti and the beatnik poets. From there to New York and Paris, as an artist in training, she attended art classes, hung out at the Beat Hotel and participated in Poetry and Art Events. In London she became a highly successful designer, first in her own boutique and then with sales to Carnaby Street and Kings Road, Paris' Tiffany's, Dorothée Bis and Le Gaminerie boutiques and across America. 

With her Maoist friend, Adrienne, she participated on the 1968 Paris barricades. 

In 1969, she established the first textile design studio in London. In 1976 after winning awards and gaining international recognition, she moved her studio to Paris. In 1985, with Li Edelkoort she created Trend Union, which TIME magazine named ‘One of the world's most influential fashion futurists'.

Latest Poem

My great grandfather was a Slave

My grandfather was a Native

My grandmother was a Bantu

My mother was a kaffir, Nigga, Negro

Names imposed by shackles

But an Afrakan I am

An identity my forefathers were deprived of

 

An identity I am now polluting with the fumes of cigarettes

In dope I am giving it another face

In ecstasy I am giving it a comical image

My drunken stupor gives it an unstable belonging

My borrowed accent contradicts what it represents

My imitated dress code conceals its beauty

My adopted religion undermines my intellectual prowess

My language deafens my ancestors

My values are valueless

My mind is discriminatory

It repels anything indigenous

Whilst absorbing all that is alien

None can identify with me

Even those I am emulating

Patriotism I reserve for my kind

I look down at my patriots

If I were xenophobic

I could have been my own victim

I pride myself in my slanted inferior education

An education promptly deleting my true history

Ignorance is my custom

I am dreaming dreams my forefathers cannot interpret

I am singing praise songs for my dying culture

I am branding a heritage

I cannot inherit

Knowledge of freedom is embedded in my subconscious

But suppressed by fear

Fear to develop my culture and identity

Fear to be rejected by the world

Fear to be different and still love myself

Yet with no identity I remain
