Corpocracy is running rampant. The potentate is out of control, emboldening the worst characteristics of mankind. Voices and actions of citizens are harshly divided, spurring a new wave of heros. 
They don’t have capes, or super human strength. They have ideals and a passionate hope that this brave new world can be a better place…if Stephanie Beroe was a super hero, her name would be Green Queen. She knows cannabis. 

Pursued by several fortune 500 companies, Stephanie Beroe and her husband Remy, founders of a Cannabis infusion company, and media darlings in the industry, fall victim to corporate sabotage. Then Remy disappears.

Caught between a terrible secret and corporate malfeasance, Stephanie must decide who to trust and what to risk, while throwing herself into the arms of seemingly benevolent billionaires. In the belly of the world’s most exclusive social clubs, decisions are made and lives are altered.

Driven by a fierce bond of love, the Beroes deploy out of the box skills to combat the dark side of the once percent.

“Buy this book. This is the good read you are looking for.  A Walk in the Park is a brilliantly crafted novel that shares what life was like at ground zero of the burgeoning cannabis industry and exposes the darkest elements of human nature. All of this, woven around a nuanced, sexy, front-seat perspective to one of the world’s most impressive love affairs. Once you have it in your hands, you won’t want to put it down.”

—Jean Weiss, author and editor, Yoga Journal, Outside, Delicious Living. Women’s Sports & Fitness.

“This brilliant romp through the cannabis trade more than recounts the author’s own trials and errors in the business. It is the work of a prodigious imagination which has devised a dense thicket of human behavior to illustrate the dynamics of the cannabis culture now. Intentionally OF ITS TIME, the book choreographs many actors’ schemes, dreams, crimes, and general shenanigans to illustrate not only the medical benefits of the increasingly licit substance. The author also moves among the political and legal forces that affect the glamour of cannabis and all those dreamers who surrender to spell ”

“I remember a phrase from a tombstone of the Lady Taimhotep, a mother entombed in ancient Egypt, The West is a land of sleep where darkness weighs on the dwelling place. Those who live there sleep as mummies. They do not wake to see their brothers and cannot see their fathers or mothers. Their hearts forget their wives and children.turn my face to the North wind at the edge of the water. Perhaps then my heart will be cooled in it’s grief.”, A Walk in The Park – A Cannabis Chronicle Thriller

“The Connecticut top drawer drawl, immediately brought to mind a Katherine Hepburn film. Collar up on his pastel pink polo shirt, sear suckers and penny loafers to boot, a real dandy.

Class 7 excerpt
Pot Luck a Homeschool Murder Mystery is a novella in the Stephanie Beroe Chronicles…
“I should have known there’d be hiccups walking into the PTA meeting, first of all I’ve never been a parent until a month ago and secondly, I sell weed. To be clear, I’m a glamping version of the corner, drug dealer for sure. I’m not handing out dime bags or selling to minors, and considering it costs a minimum of over a million dollars to get into the cannabis industry these days, it’s glamping on steroids.
A newbie to parenting, except for our German Shephard, I’ve had little to no experience; I’ve never even babysat before. But when my husband’s sister was called on an archaeological dig of a life time, and couldn’t take her eleven- year- old daughter Imogene with her safely into Iraq, we volunteered as tributes. I’m sure it has something to do with the fact that both Remy and I believe we can’t have children. The horrifying possibility, is that we were sterilized without our knowledge over a year ago by a real villain. I won’t bring myself to find out for sure, it’s just too much. So suddenly, something we’d never thought about, never mind discussed, has become very important. Children. The idea of it! Imogene is a great warm up. It’s only nine months. What could go wrong?
A pandemic? Seriously? Reconfiguring with the world in lock down and schools closing, I did what I do best, and made what we needed; happen by creating a micro school with four other women to ensure in-person instruction and socialization for Imogene and four of her friends during a time of mass isolation. But what seems like a great idea, begins to morph into a multi-layered recipe for murder that makes the cannabis industry taste indelibly pedestrian.
Literally, driven to micro- dosed, cannabis tea to survive the micro- managing text streams and embroiled weekly video calls from hell with her PTA group, it’s clear this gaggle of women are nothing short of dynamic but maybe not, in a good way as their personalities unfold; a CEO of a cattle ranching family, heralded from Spanish nobility who has a vendetta against plant- based diet enthusiasts, a domineering, Christian missionary from California whose husband is a closet, flat earth – math teacher, a vegetarian, doctor’s wife with a dangerous personal secret, and a militant vegan, momtrepreneur. The challenge of pleasing everyone, the mom’s and the kids, is daunting among power plays and self- serving ploys that continually escalate due to forced isolation and self -preservation instincts. But the pot really begins to boil during a Halloween party, when the herbivores are secretly served cocktails made from bug scales!
I’ve seen a lot of crazy things as a veteran of one of the most volatile industries in the world, but this, takes the cake, as I become suspect when PTA ladies start turning up stoned and dead. Who knew one of the scariest topics known to women would be educating our kids!”
