Lost Angel is a pulp-fiction mystery in which four characters, in four short stories, have their lives interweave with one another over 2,000 miles of Interstate-40. 

The trip begins in the fall of 1976 with the formative years of a serial killer whom the media later call the Freeway Slasher. This megalomaniac is the terror that hides in the listener’s mind.

Fast forward to the year 2000, when a Cherokee woman named Arzula leaves San Diego on a trip to Oklahoma along I-40. Her journey brings her into contact with Mark, a gas station clerk, and Damon, a hitchhiker fresh out of the Navy. They cross paths, unaware of the tragic fate that waits further down the road.

The fast paced narrative, direct sentence structure, and short word vocabulary reflect the author’s journalistic style.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Lucia Sherman steals the show with an expertly underplayed performance…The stories work well with each other, and the selection of narrators is perfect…Emerson creates a thrilling ride down Interstate 40.”


  • “A very interesting and clever collage. I liked the structure and the fact that all the character’s stories interlace, the idea that although we are…on our separate paths and making our individual choices [we] cannot avoid the inevitable connection to everyone else. We are all in this together.”

    Aurelio O’Brien, author of Eve

  • Featured Recording at the HEAR Now Audio Fiction and Arts Festival in 2013
  • Finalist for the Native American Music Award for Best Spoken Word Recording in 2014
