Description

One minute, Matthew Welborn is strutting out the gym with marriage on his mind and a promotion on his paycheck. The next, he wakes up on a chaise sporting a splitting migraine, bloody clothes, and a bullet in his forehead. Welcome to the Afterlife. Home to every deceased follower of every religion known to mankind. It's the paradise resort for the happily religiously dead. And Matthew is very dead. Very skeptical. And very pissed off. Forced to finish out his 'Spiritual Evaluation' before reincarnation, Matthew's plans of sneaking to Earth and finding his murderer are put on indefinite hiatus. Enter The Big Five, a gang of powerful, diverse gods that oversee all universal affairs, including taming Lucifer and occasionally saving humanity. So maybe if Matthew can swallow his Agnostic pride long enough, The Big Five will return him to the love he left behind and the future he lost. Not necessarily without a cost. Good thing they're recruiting desperate naive souls into their ranks... Part screwy social commentary, part shameless cultural irritant, Kay Elle's glowing debut novel is sure to startle, dazzle, and scare. Amalgamating hundreds of major world religions into one colorful puree, The Big Five examines the tragedy and hilarity of modern life with liberal amounts of sass and hysteria. It's a riotous tale of epic proportions.show more

About Kay Elle

Kay Elle, a black, southern, 17 year old high school student, is slightly uncomfortable writing in third person, but she understands the need for an author biography. She enjoys mixing genres and themes together in her writing because she feels 'Sci Fi/Alternate History' and 'Black Humor/Aboriginal' sound so much more interesting. Her main occupations are school and people watching, both of which she gladly does for free. When asked what her motivation in life is, she responds "to raise as much hell as politely as possible." Kay Elle is the winner of the Alachua County Teachers of English Award, is constantly striving for personal growth, and speaks English with acceptable proficiency. The Big Five is her first novel.show more
