Dianne Krogh’s “The 4:15 Express to Nowhere: A Novel” was featured at the 2023 Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. The literary festival took place at the University of Southern California in April 2023. Published by KDP, the book was presented at the festival by ReadersMagnet.

Born poor in 1950, Valerie had pulled her family to the top rung of the social ladder. A life well lived, she thought, deserving of reward. But when she suddenly dies, she realizes there is a problem. She had assumed she would shoot straight into Heaven where she could sing with the angels and finally visit Paris.

But when her husband runs them into a tree on a Harley, she finds herself, not in Heaven, but trapped in a void where her past is the extent of her reality. She doesn’t like it there. A woman accustomed to getting her way, Valerie wants out. The Guy, a soul with a crooked halo, limited patience, and a tendency toward sarcasm, arrives from Heaven to help Valerie discover what is keeping her from finding eternal peace.

An awkward friendship develops between the two as they peel back the veneer of Valerie’s life to reveal the dysfunction and abuse her children suffered. She had only meant to correct their flaws. To make them good enough. It isn’t until Valerie looks down on her funeral, which is filled with unexpected revelations, that she finally understands the value of her life.

Dianne Krogh combines her imagination with humor and insight to create an engaging and thought-provoking novel about social class envy, peer pressure and individual differences.
