Choices at the End of the World

On the eve of the end of the world, 20 December 2012, five friends meet in Spanish Gardens, the cafe where they had celebrated their college graduation 20 years before. Over Irish coffees, they reminisce - and reveal long-held and disturbing secrets.

Each friend in turn is given a curious set of instructions by an enigmatic bartender named Ariel:

“Your life is filled with crossroads and you are free to choose one road or another at any time. Stepping through this door takes away all choices except two — the choice to live a different life, or return to this one….”

Each in turn passes through the portal and are faced with new lives and challenges. Their decisions show a new life — or something far worse. Ar the end of the world, it’s a chance for redemption, or a chance to learn something about themselves.

International bestselling author, Alma Alexander, mixes a world or possibilities and paths. What if you could change the past — go right instead of left, fall in love with a different person, change careers or families, or even change your sex. 2012 Midnight at Spanish Gardens brings those choices to life.

Read Sample

Alma Alexander, the ‘Duchess of Fantasy,’ was born with ink in her veins in a town on the banks of an ancient river in a country which no longer exists. When she was ten, her family moved to Africa and since then she has lived in several countries on four continents.

She is also quite comfortable in the new continent of cyberspace. Several years ago she was living in New Zealand when she met a man on an Internet bulletin board for writers, married him and moved to America.

She has written more than two million words and one of her novels, “The Secrets of Jin-shei,” has been published around the world 14 languages. The heroine of her popular Young Adult Worldweavers series is as American as Harry Potter is British.

Alma is a punaholic and a chronic worrier, one of those people who proves that real pessimists are truly born and not made. She is owned by two cats.

She was born on the fifth day of July (the day after America), six years before man walked on the moon, which makes her a cancer according to the Western horoscope and a water rabbit according to the Chinese one.

When asked what she would be if she weren’t a writer, she quotes Ursula LeGuin’s answer to that question: “Dead.”

Alma adds: “I have a wonderful occupation; I dream for a living.”
