Swallowtails by Sheri Meshal

Open Worldwide !!

"My 'Favorite' Book in 2013"

Chicago wife, mother and finance executive Claire Cummings, arrives at work one morning to discover her friend Julia has embezzled millions and vanished. Blindsided and devastated by the betrayal, she’s sent home pending further investigation. Claire’s bizarre death the following day sends everyone reeling, guessing and looking for her in all the wrong places. In no time she's addicted to an enchanting menagerie of tricks and techniques for getting the living's attention, but most people are harder to reach than she'd ever dreamed and even harder to set free.

She was still a mother, a wife, a daughter and a friend... she'd move heaven and earth to keep it that way.

Sheri Meshal’s Swallowtail is a haunting story about life, love, loss and just how far we’ll go to control it all.

This debut from a thought-provoking new voice in fiction begs the question… what would you do if all the rules changed, and you were suddenly bestowed powers beyond your greatest imagination?

About the Author
Sheri Meshal spent most of her childhood on an old farm in Iowa. She is an author by day and chauffeur by night... for a tad bit longer. Swallowtail took over six years to write and was inspired by bizarre events which occurred shortly after her father's passing in 1998. Best friends, they'd engaged in countless conversations regarding the possibility of life after death and enjoyed sharing books on the subject years before he was diagnosed with lung cancer. After a myriad of unexplainable events, Sheri realized had she died first, she would've done everything in her power to get her father's attention and show him all the things she could do. 

Her father had informed her that she was a writer long before she could begin to accept the possibility. In her heart, she knew he should've been the writer, and if she did possess any talent for it, it was due to his DNA. She began writing for both of them and often wondered if he helped her, as crucial research repeatedly found its way to her by the strangest means. When she met medium Jonathan Louis, he desperately tried to avoid a cliche topic. Exasperated, he finally gave in saying, "I don't want to say this. Whenever I do, the room goes crazy. Sometimes it just is what it is and nothing more, but what does it mean when I say the word butterfly to you?" Overcome with emotion, she confessed she'd written a novel titled Swallowtail about a dead woman communicating with her friends and family. He answered softly with a smile, "He helps you."

A minimalist, Sheri currently lives in Chicago sans furniture with her dog, Kylee and her roommate and fellow writer, Mack Oliver. When she isn't writing, she's traveling and spending time with her nieces and nephews every chance she gets.

  1. This is a book that everyone should read.

  2. Write a message either in the sand (beach) or on a bathroom mirror covered in condensation. As it would be seen by the living and the message left could be particularly appropriate i.e. aimed at a particular living person.

    Rachel Craig

  3. The first thing that came to mind was the bathroom mirror. Moving things around would work.

  4. Pam Francis GregoryNovember 11, 2013 at 2:39 PM

    Move things around & hide stuff

  5. Turning electronics on and off would get their attention!

  6. Moving things and hiding them as well

  7. I think I would use electricity and technology to contact the living.

  8. make them have cold chills and turning doorknobs. Or making only one phone ring. Or turning off the television. Believe it or not all have happened to me.

  9. I'd LOVE to read this book! I'm not sure what I'd do to get the "livings'" attention. I'm thinking doorbells, telephone rings, and lights flickering...

  10. Fabulous

    George Williamson

  11. make noises
    good luck to all
    aka midgeknows

  12. Knocking stuff down and eerie lights would get their attention.


Always lovely to hear your comments xx
