The Shoeman Curse details the tribulations of middle-aged Dusty Shoeman. Dusty is a family man living in chaos—stemming from teenagers, pretentious neighbors, a semi-hostile marriage, and bothersome coworkers. To cope with what he calls “The Shoeman Curse”, Dusty literally closet-writes his way to sanity, but nobody knows about his writing, not even his wife. And Dusty’s been writing a novel his whole married life. In Dusty’s novel, Janet, a single mother, loses her son to cancer. To deal with unbearable pain, she resorts to a cutting-edge virtual mind-therapy, designed to help parents who’ve lost their children. Using a new therapy technique, Janet is transferred to a world where she meets a young boy who reveals a secret. Janet must pass through five doors for the therapy to be successful. Dusty is a man on a mission when it comes to breaking patterns and creating opportunity for his family. He knows teenagers, wives, and pretentious neighbors aren’t always easy to live with, but his sense of humor and hard work both lend themselves to hopefully breaking The Shoeman Curse.
