Reading and Signing: Mtaitw by P.A. Barrick
A wealthy philanthropist with a gift and a famous rock singer meet in an unorthodox way during a three-a.m. phone call. Mtaitw follows their first three months as they each quickly understand they have found that often-mythic entity, their true soul mate. Although a love story, it is more a life story of two great women whose love is deep and whose bond is unbreakable. Chris, fifty, and Lyric, sixty, embrace their sexuality and revel in each other’s touch. As Lyric states at one point, “Even though our sex life is varied, exciting, amazing, fun, erotic, and all those other things; the truth is that it’s actually deeply loving and committed, which is a bigger turn-on than all the others together.”
In the beginning, Chris’s strength supports and embraces Lyric in her time of need, but when a life tragedy occurs for the couple during Lyric’s final tour, it shows both Chris and Lyric how strong Lyric truly is.
P.A. Barrick is a true, but often unorthodox, southern, gay woman. She is a tattooed hippie, vegan, and Buddhist, while at the same time being an assertive and direct person. (Yes, she’s most definitely a Gemini.) In the past, Barrick had an amazing career as an Executive Chef, while enjoying a side pursuit as a three-sport official. Currently, she lives in sunny and warm southwest Florida, across the street from the bay. She walks it or the beach daily, usually with her dog, Bodhi.
