We all have our secrets. But what will drive three women, women many of us can identify with, to commit murder? And what would make us side with them when they do? With sensitivity, compassion, and understanding, and a bit of humor too, A. R. Alan’s novel “Fireflies” brings us into their worlds. The plights of these women will stay with you long after you’ve read it

Carren Strock, author of “Married Women Who Love Women.”

Fireflies is a riveting novel filled with lust, murder and black humor. Over a wilderness camp fire, three women tell the truth about their marriages. None had divorced their husbands, and none of their husbands died of natural causes. Sleep? No way is that possible when you're reading A.R. Alan’s book.

As a psychotherapist I have worked with many couples dealing with issues of anger, betrayal, unrequited love, abandonment, abuse, and even sexual compulsions. I found A. R. Alan’s characters to be believable, delightful and somewhat scary. In my mind I kept wondering, “What led these three seemingly normal women to commit such horrific crimes and solidify their intimate friendships in the process?” That intriguing question along with the natural, easy to read, flowing dialogue kept me reading to discover the elusive answers. I temporarily abandoned my professional journals and newsletters to finish this simple and compelling story.

I am going to take my hat off to Ms. Alan for being able to make me laugh and cry at the same time.
