Lorraine Devon Wilke Photographs Grace Book Cover Of New Novel

Photographer and author, Lorraine Devon Wilke, has just released her first novel, After the Sucker Punch, and in keeping with her assignation as a "creative hyphenate," two of her photographs have been used for both the front and back covers of the book.

Contemporary literary fiction, After the Sucker Punch is summarized as follows:

"Author and longtime Huffington Post contributor, Lorraine Devon Wilke, takes an irreverent look at father/daughter relationships, exploring that classic theme through family, faith, cults, creativity, new love and old, and the struggle to define oneself against the inexplicable perceptions of a deceased parent. Told with both sass and sensibility, its a story wrapped in contemporary culture but with a very classic heart."
