Kill the Monster:
The Paradox of Completion

Finishing anything always involves paradox: the peculiar admixture of joy and sadness that a very long-term goal has been achieved. Okay, but kill the monster? Isn’t that a strange phrase to use when completing a long project- one that has taken years to finish…like a book.

Especially this book! Or is it? I’m a writer but the paradox of completion isn’t limited to writing; instead, it applies to all big, long-term projects.

Midwest Book Review

Wilder (The Fragrance Shed by a Violet) provides a fresh, entertaining take on one of the lesser-known women of the Bible: Claudia Procula, daughter of the last Oracle of Pythia in Delphi and wife of Lucius Pontius Pilate. Told from their alternating perspectives, the story begins with Claudia recognizing in adolescence that she is gifted with premonitions and a knack for academics.
