The Big One follows the lives of nine very different but interrelated characters through the day before, the day of and the day after the greatest earthquake ever to hit San Francisco - an event expected in the very near future. It concludes with a huge, internationally televised memorial service for the dead a month later, when some of the mysteries that tie together these tormented people are resolved. "This appears to be a novel about 'The Big One, ' the great earthquake that we've been told will inevitably strike San Francisco. But it is really a story about human catastrophe, dissolution, and the heartbreaking struggle for redemption. Littlejohn deftly weaves interconnected and unraveling lives on the brink of cataclysm. A bold and mesmerizing novel." - Paul Zalis, author, Who is the River "This is a terrific novel, a vivid, utterly convincing, utterly compelling depiction of the event we've all spent our lives dreading. David Littlejohn brings to his tale breathtaking erudition, a born storyteller's gift for page-turning narration, and a native San Franciscan's love for and intimate knowledge of his home town." - Erik Tarloff, author, Face Time and The Man Who Wrote the Book "David Littlejohn's The Big One dares to imagine a natural catastrophe of unheard-of proportions, and then pulls the reader irresistibly through it with luminous details and genuinely complex characters. In its epic sweep it gives us people from the full social spectrum of the city--from the mentally disturbed homeless street artist to the dowager at the opera. And it gets us to care about them." - Ron Loewinsohn, author, Magnetic Field(s) David Littlejohn was born in San Francisco, the descendant of 1850 gold-seekers. He taught English and journalism at the University of California at Berkeley for 35 years. He has written fifteen books (including two other novels), more than 400 articles and 238 television broadcasts, and is working on a memoir of his life entitled I Can't Feel a Thing.

In this twisting time-travel thriller, a woman faints on the eve of her wedding—and awakens at the turn of the century in her grandmother’s body . . . The night before she is supposed to get married, Shay Garrett has no idea that a glimpse into her grandmother’s antique Chinese mirror will completely transform her seemingly ordinary life. But after a bizarre blackout, she wakes up to find herself in the same house—but in the year 1900. Even stranger, she realizes she is now living in the body of her grandmother, Brandy McCabe, as a young woman. Meanwhile, Brandy, having looked into the same mirror, awakens in Shay’s body in the present day—and discovers herself pregnant. As Rachael—the woman who links these two generations, mother to one and daughter to another—weaves back and forth between two time periods, this imaginative thriller explores questions of family, identity, and love. Courageous, compassionate Shay finds herself fighting against the confines of a society still decades away from women’s liberation, while Brandy struggles to adapt to the modern world she has suddenly been thrust into. The truth behind this inexplicable turn of events is more complex than either woman can imagine—and The Mirror is a tribute to the triumph of the female spirit, even in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. “What happens will surprise you. In the meantime, settle down for a good read.” —The Denver Post

"[Mindy Mejia] is simply a beautiful writer…" —Twin Cities Pioneer Press"Mejia beautifully tackles the subjects of animal captivity, endangered animals, human-animal connections, and even evolution." —Global Animal"This is a thriller of the rarest form—one that touches both the mind and the heart. A wonderful read." —Mary Logue, author of the Claire Watkins mysteries"…impressive…ambitious…Mindy Mejia is a talent to watch." —Sheila O'Connor, author of Where No Gods Came and Sparrow Road A zookeeper fights to save the animal she loves, even as her own life crumbles around her… Meg Yancy knows she may be overly attached to Jata, the Komodo dragon that has been in her care since it arrived at the zoo from Indonesia. Jata brings the exotic to Meg’s Minnesotan life: an ancient, predatory history and stories of escaping to freedom. A species that became endangered soon after being discovered, Komodos have a legacy of independence, something that Meg understands all too well. Meg has always been better able to relate to reptiles than to people, from her estranged father to her live-in boyfriend to the veterinarian who is more concerned with his career than with the animals’ lives. Then one day, Meg makes an amazing discovery. Jata has produced viable eggs—without ever having had a mate. Faced with this rare phenomenon, Meg must now defend Jata’s hatchlings from the scientific, religious, and media forces that converge on the zoo to claim the miracle as their own. Finally forced to deal with the very people she has avoided for so long, Meg discovers that opening herself up comes with its own complications. And as she fights to save the animal she loves from the consequences of its own miracle, she must learn to accept that in nature, as in life, not everything can be controlled. Mindy Mejia’s gripping debut novel highlights the perils of captivity and the astonishing ways in which animals evolve.
