Read full description of the books:
Somewhere out there is a line in the sand between sanity and insanity. JANE searches that line out, toys with it, revels in it, and then takes a running leap right over it.
Salem Oregon sets the stage for Crazy Town, where the mental hospital sits smack dab in the middle of the city― halfway down Center Street. It is an apt placement when you consider the character of the city and yet it begs the age old question; was it the chicken or the egg? Whether it is mere irony, or a grave miscalculation in Feng Shui, the center―the very core of this place―is the Oregon State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. So when twenty-five year old Jane moves back to care for her schizophrenic aunt, miscarriage and an unfaithful fiancé fresh in her mind, the seeds are ripe for her mother’s cruel words to come true: “You’re going to end up just like your aunt. You’re going to end up in a mental hospital someday.”
Caught between the secrets lurking below the surface of such childhood traumas and Aunt Rose's demons― soon Jane is in desperate need of an escape. She find it in The Circle, a mismatched group of twenty-somethings who wave their amateur psychiatric diagnoses like badges of honor and party until the sun comes up. They coddle her mood swings and egg each other on as they test their respective limits of sanity. And even though Jane knows the point of no return is out there somewhere, she pushes on. For months she toes the line between exacerbated caretaker and the freedom she finds in casual sex and a cocktail of weed, alcohol and cocaine. Then, when it all finally starts to catch up with her, the ride gets wilder than she ever imagined.

Read information about the authorArmed with a useless liberal arts degree, Riya Anne Polcastro is a student of human behavior and a conduit for raw words. Maybe it is because she learned to read and write in her second language before she learned to do the same in her first. Maybe it is because she was raised a missionary’s daughter at the same time that she was taught to question everything. Maybe there are a whole lot of reasons. Either way, her fascination with mental illness and human interaction is weaved into fiction with a language that is at times caressed and loved, at others beaten into submission.
A long time resident of the Pacific Northwest, Polcastro aims to join the ranks of great Oregon writers. Her first love is dark, edgy literary fiction but she also dabbles in young adult dystopia and non-fiction. While she has been heavily inspired by the genius of writers such as Palahniuk and Tolstoy, music has also played a huge role, with artists like Gnarles Barkley and Tool having a tremendous influence in her stories.
Polcastro enjoys an active lifestyle, including running, hiking, in-line skating, and a special brand of tennis lovingly called “Get it B*tch”. She also enjoys spending time with her family, making beer and getting away to British Columbia at every possible opportunity. Her favorite color is burnt orange, but it is hard to find so she wears a lot of red instead.
