“Overall, every story focuses on the extent of our ability to adapt as human beings, including the ethical message of compassion, determination and tolerance. Erickson’s knowledge in the cognitive field clearly shows and makes each story much more substantial.” – 5 stars, Lit Amri, Readers’ Favorite Reviews

      "Time is for Dragonflies and Angels, the new book from sci fi author J.M. Erickson is a collection of short stories in the tradition of the classic science fiction writing compendiums, evoking well-loved writers such as Aldous Huxley and George Orwell, with clear influences from other giants of the genre as we go along.
      Time is for Dragonflies is most certainly worth a dip for any fan of science fiction looking for fresh directions to steer their imagination to new realms."  - 4 stars,  Self-Publishing Reviews

      “These stories are well structured to keep the reader’s interest constant, exciting and arousing the desire to know what happens next. The characters are well developed and some will linger in the minds of readers for a long time after they have finished reading.” –  5 starsDivine Zape, Readers’ Favorite Reviews
These two novellas contain material that is for a mature audience and that feature adult situations, explicit language, and graphic scenes of sex. The material is not meant for youth and anyone under 18 years old.

      Carlos Rodriguez has everything. He has a solid career as a clinical therapist; he has a successful doctor wife, three beautiful daughters, and a modest home in an upscale neighborhood. But when he takes an earlier flight to surprise his wife on their anniversary, he finds her screaming in ecstasy in their bedroom as another man satisfies her.
      Fortunately for him, his cool, collected cousin Colleen who drove him home was there to keep him from killing them both. She also pulled together a plan to make sure that his wife and her rich parents didn’t kick him out and take away his kids. But for the plan to work, Carlos will have to be patient and develop a “moral fluidity” that Colleen has long acquired as an escort.

   “This tale of courage, conviction and adventure will most likely thrill any reader who has the good fortune to come across it. I'm hoping for more flash fiction from Mr. Erickson. To See Behind Walls is most highly recommended.” – 5 stars, Jack Magnus, Readers’ Favorite Reviews

“ For those with a vivid imagination, the sky’s the limit.  Altogether, an inspiring flight of fancy.” - 5 stars, Marta Tandori, Readers' Favorite Reviews

“It is a metaphor of postmodern manhood and fatherhood. It speaks to the adventurous souls of men who are trapped inside very ordinary, boring lives. Indeed, men were not designed to be locked up inside offices and cubicles. The spirit of man craves danger, exploration, discovery, and adventure.” - 5 stars,  Geoff Baggett, Readers' Favorite Reviews
      The first novella picks up three years later after Carlos’ heartbreaking discovery. During the day, he is a caring, loving father, the friendly neighborhood therapist, and loyal husband. But when the kids are at school and his wife is at work, his “mommy hours” are filled with sexually gratifying professional women’s rich sexual fantasies and fetishes. Working as the only male provider of his cousins’ erotic service, Dream-Catcher Fantasies - DCF, which specializes in fulfilling rich women’s fantasies, Carlos is known as Mr. Jett Beryl, Senior Associate, who specializes in pleasuring mature, professional women in the Boston area.
      The second novella follows Carlos to the next level in his multiple relationships with his clients and the surprising conclusion orchestrated by his cousins Colleen and Kristen, and the entire DCF team to make sure Carlos has both his daughters and his vengeance.To survive, you need to adapt quickly. Patience, ingenuity, creative thinking, and family are all you need when the odds are against you.

To See Behind Walls

July 20, 2016

Author & Publisher - J.M. Erickson

    On March 18, 1939 a short story was featured in The New Yorker called the “Secret Life of Walter Mitty” by James Thurber. It featured a husband’s vivid imagination taking flight to escape the day to day demands of his wife and the mundane traps of American middle class. Fanciful, fun and entertaining, it is a story everyone can relate too.

         This short story is about Benjamin Wood. He is a suburban father of two, loving husband and dog owner in Middle America who has a lot of things to do around the house on a cold, winter Saturday morning. You may not know anyone like him but at the very least he will be familiar to you.
