Product description

Product Description

B. J. Tiernan’s novel is a deep dive into the business of living and dying. Recluse Lance Stavros is a successful doctor who runs his own practice, but on the inside, he’s basically high-functioning human wreckage. He was born into a loveless home that lacked the nurturing to help him develop an ability to cope with life’s challenges. Now Lance is forty-seven, and the only reason he’s survived the past four decades without taking his own life is cowardice.



As hopelessness overcomes him, and he’s finally finding the guts within to pull the trigger on his existence, a house call pulls him out of the deadly spiral. It will turn out to be the call of his lifetime.



Lance becomes a live-in medic for a controversial mystic and lecturer who irks the Greek government—and becomes an assassin’s target. Amid this new and curious world, and a reignited past romance, Lance battles his cowardice to investigate who is trying to kill his employer, and he’s about to uncover more than he bargained for.



Those who live with, or have experienced, emotional pain, destructive tendencies, or addictions will find Lance’s story familiar, engaging, and at its heart—inspirational.

About the Author

B. J. Tiernan is a teacher. It's her calling, and she's been at it since graduating from the University of Florida with a degree in education in 1972. She has also given numerous seminars, inspirational workshops, and classes to promote self-growth and writing skills. For the past fifteen years, she has put her certification in social sciences to work teaching world history and ancient cultures to sixth graders.

One of her biggest joys is to design and teach a course for adults at Community School, where individuals can shine a light on their memories and experiences and organize their personal histories into stories. One of her student's short stories is published in Chicken Soup for the Soul-Family Matters.

Tiernan dedicates Standing on a Whale to all of her students who have passed through her classes and workshops hungry to learn and write.
