What happens when the narrator is removed from a story? When the author's real life is fictionalized instead, so that creator and creation relate on the same existential ground with no middleman? Chameleon (Days) is such an experiment in storytelling, a literary novel that explores an author's psychotic break as he prepares to write an idea he has apparently stolen, one prompted by the discovery of a secondary character in his walk-in closet. A fictional day-to-day narrative structured around the search for Kashif, a feared and hunted terrorist labeled the Chameleon for the many facial surgeries he has incurred to disguise his identity, Chameleon (Days) bridges its author's life to the evolution of Kashif's story creating a fiction "while life happens," which often manifests itself in interference, inspiration, and the perils of letting your character know who his creator is.

“Moves beyond a compelling personal story to shed radiant light on history itself . . . an essential chronicle of midcentury American idealism.” —Patricia Hampl, author of The Art of the Wasted Day In 1964, at the age of three, Tim Bascom is thrust into a world of eucalyptus trees and stampeding baboons when his family moves from the Midwest to Ethiopia. The unflinchingly observant narrator of this memoir reveals his missionary parents’ struggles in a sometimes hostile country. Sent reluctantly to boarding school in the capital, young Tim finds that beyond the gates enclosing that peculiar, isolated world, conflict roils Ethiopian society. When secret riot drills at school are followed with an attack by rampaging students near his parents’ mission station, Tim witnesses the disintegration of his family’s African idyll as Haile Selassie’s empire begins to crumble. Like Alexandra Fuller’s Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight, Chameleon Days chronicles social upheaval through the keen yet naive eyes of a child. Bascom offers readers a fascinating glimpse of missionary life, much as Barbara Kingsolver did in The Poisonwood Bible. “Such precision in voice earned Bascom the Bread Loaf Writer’s Conference Bakeless Prize, and his smartly naïve observations grow more sophisticated as the country succumbs to political unrest in the 1970s and missionary life becomes uncertain. Nostalgic but not overwrought, Bascom’s memoir is accented with casual family snapshots like ribbons on the gift of a gently captured place in time.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) “Bascom, son of missionaries, illuminates the Ethiopia of his childhood in this Bakeless Prize–winning memoir . . . A stirring tribute to a turbulent, beautifully evoked era.” —Kirkus Reviews

A chance meeting, two strangers whose paths cross—in the same place at the same time, yet a world apart. When mining engineer Ethan Savage spots the cloaked, veiled woman riding a donkey in the Moroccan desert, he can be forgiven for thinking that in some respects nothing much has changed in two thousand years. She wouldn't look out of place in Biblical times. They pass, nod, smile politely and go their separate ways, two strangers a world apart. But when, moments later, she rescues him from his crashed car, the first words she utters make Ethan realize that appearances can be deceptive. His little Berber peasant is not what she seems. Shifting effortlessly between her traditional roots in the foothills of the Atlas Mountains and her professional life as the Totally Five Star hotel doctor, Fleur is a human chameleon, able to adapt and blend into any environment. At first irritated then amused by the handsome stranger, Fleur knows the assumptions he's made about her. As their paths cross once more at the luxurious hotel, she realizes he, too, is not all he seems. This sexy Englishman holds the key to her most secret and sensual desires, dangerous yearnings she's kept locked away for years. Now she has a choice to make. Ethan is only in Marrakesh for a few days, then he'll be gone and she'll never see him again. No one will ever know, so surely it will do no harm? Can she pass up this opportunity? And once she's trusted him with her body, experienced all he can offer, will she be able to return to her old life? Or will the sensual chameleon need to reinvent herself once again to fit into his world?

At one point or another, we’ve all been targeted or victimized by a Super Deceiver. Even as you are reading the cover of this book, unbeknownst to you, there is a very strong chance that someone you are very familiar with is lying, cheating, hustling or deceiving you. It is very possible that you are doing the same thing to someone else without you fully understanding the spiritual ramifications it holds. In spite of having as its primary instructional tool, the best-selling book [The Bible] of all times, today’s Christians are in an identity crisis — we are in perilous times! And as we continue to live in perilous times, the explosive growth in WEALTH, the POPULARITY of people, places and things, the unencumbered SENSUALITY displayed in various forms, the charm and CHARISMA of people who are Christian in name only, and people who are adept at manipulating FEAR tactics to paralyze or channel a person’s movement, has allowed an insidious platform for Super Deceivers to thrive. Like a CHAMELEON, who is capable of changing colors and appearances based on the environment it has settled into, a Super Deceiver does it in order to wreak havoc on you, your relationships, your finances, and your purpose. Now is the time to understand and reclaim your identity, your purpose, and your influence as a true believer and follower of Jesus Christ, so that you, too, can expose and counter the five faces of a Super Deceiver.
