I have written and published the following two novels which are available for order on Amazon.com and through all major booksellers.
SOMETIMES THAT HAPPENS WITH CHICKEN: A NOVEL
Ignatious Gillard is not what he seems and neither is his building on the south side of Tompkins Square Park. His tenants don’t know he’s a rich fake orphan with a dream that will change their lives forever, and they don’t know how much more they have in common than their address. With historical threads reaching from Texas to Saudi Arabia, Shapiro brings magic to the mundane as she weaves the past, present and future into a penetrating portrait of human nature.
VOLUME TWO: A NOVEL
It’s the kind of tense and angry night to which we can all relate, and Shapiro delivers a front row seat. Jennifer doesn’t know he’s hiding a diamond ring in the bedroom, and Denmond doesn’t know she’s really not cheating on him. Albeit uncomfortable at times, this detailed and nuanced portrayal of one night in the lives of two people is written with a kind of voyeuristic realism that will provoke a spectrum of responses-from shame and pity, to insight and laughter.
