They Call It Living is a work of fiction encompassing themes of innocence, omnipotence, ruin, salvation, redemption and creation. Its themes are embodied in four successive couplets of poem by the author that start each section of the work: Innocence (Earth), Omnipotence (Sky), Ruin (Sea), and Salvation and Redemption (Island). These themes constitute the transition for the main character, Jay Raymond Kimmellmass, from the easy going, heady years of first successes as a junior trader in the world of finance to the more sober yet happier years of a fuller life that includes self awareness and responsibility beyond self. The central cast of characters are thirty-somethings (one is forty) living primarily in New York City (one in Washington, D.C. Virginia surrounds). A secondary cast includes numerous supporting characters of varying ages, cultural backgrounds, and points of view. The central story is colorfully flesh-out with local mores as presented through the detail of the supporting characters. The action takes place in and around new York City, eastern Long Island, France, and the Caribbean island of Dominica.

Maxine Schnadelbach has been writing works of fiction for ten years. Born in pre-gambling Atlantic City, N.J. and educated in local schools, Cornell University, Barnard, and Pratt Institute School of Architecture, she hold a Bachelor of Architecture degree. She practiced architecture in New York City for twenty eight years before leaving the profession for further adventures. She sees writing and architecture, design and building in parallel terms: Words are the basic materials, sentences are the fabricated materials, paragraphs are the building systems, and chapters are the thematic elements of design. Highly structured, the work in its entirety is designed and crafted much as a finished piece of architecture might be. firstname.lastname@example.org
