J.E. Muzzio, a Tampa native, lives a solitary life in the shadow of The Big Guava. Jacob’s Ladder was her first work of fiction. It was inspired by her children and brought to life by her father, her hero, who always told her she could do anything – even dance on the stars; and her mother who taught her that if you want to dance, you have to pay the fiddler.

by J.E. Muzzio

A young nun is found on a park bench in Tampa, Florida, badly beaten and near death. Who is this vestige of a time gone by, and where did she come from? Is she a prostitute, a threat to Homeland Security, or an unfortunate victim of violent crime? These are the questions of the doctors that care for her, and the authorities who are driven to find an answer.
