“broken and fragmented and beautiful and odd.”
When her lover Ruby is found brutally murdered, Vivica begins a desperate search for answers. A junkie’s death on a full moon weekend and a street musician’s cryptic riddles compel her on a road-trip to solve the mystery of what police are calling a crime of passion, an incestuous murder-suicide. But all on Earth is not as it appears to be.
Accompanied by a chain-smoking private dick named Stan and her trusty companion Lizard, with the ominous omniscient Judge in hot pursuit, Vivica’s quest to find out who killed Ruby is driven relentlessly to its final shocking conclusion.

“I picked this book up in Electric Lettuce, a wonderful everything-to-us type store in Nanaimo BC. It reads like a diary where the character only notates her brilliant thoughts for the day. We don’t walk with her through mundane things. We don’t talk about brushing teeth or eating breakfast. It’s broken and fragmented and beautiful and odd. Each day is often much less than a page of writing as she carries us along, stumbling her confusion, trying, as we all do, to find herself. Glad I picked it up … and I hope you can enjoy it too.” GateGypsy, Bookcrossing
“Lynnette D’anna bridges the boundaries between illusion and reality in her spare, poetic prose.”
“Approach this novel with the care and thoughtfulness that you might a volume of poetry. The experience will be as pleasurable as the alluring cover promises. Vixen is definitely a book for the adventurous!” Moira Richards, Women Writers
“Reading Vixen is like visiting a supernatural peep-show. Those who like their novels to have the distinct aftertastes of blood, Seconal, and leatherette will enjoy the ride. Fans of Harlan Ellison may approve.” Marnie Woodrow, Quill & Quire
