Is transparency as necessary for a good marriage as it is for a successful tax return? The short story, The Tax Angel, asks this question as it looks behind closed doors and unearths deductions you never knew you had coming. Can the rite of preparing yearly returns change an otherwise delightful woman into a fire-breathing harpy, or is it just her husband’s fevered imagination? The author combines the angelic with some deviltry for a deft concoction that will have you reading past April 15.I can’t tell you whether to take that questionable deduction. I can recommend you read this story to put a little humor into tax season.

Snagged me from the start!

What an excellent read! DJ Marcussen takes the reader on an engaging voyage for the newlyweds traveling through tax season together! This story is a quick read, witty, and a bit suspenseful…but delivers a good message! Timely reading as April 15th approaches soon! A great way to ease the stress of the tax season by reading about this necessary evil that turns every home office into the seventh layer of hell every year. 🙂

DJ Marcussen’s story intrigues from the start. An entertaining, page-turning read, it keeps you guessing and wondering what’s next. A story for men and women alike–good, clean fun that reminds one that an all-consuming job can wreak havoc with who you are if you’re not careful. Read before or after April 15–it’s a joy! Looking forward to the next story.

Mrs. Marcussen has done a masterful job, as she always does, of weaving humor into everything she writes. It is a dry, sophisticated style of humor that elevates this story to a very special place. The characters in this story are rich, vibrant, and of many layers. The mystery that evolves throughout the story leaves you nodding your head and saying, “Well done!” when the final word has been read. I highly recommend this story for anyone who has to prepare or file tax returns, or anyone with a sense of humor. In short, everyone! I hope you enjoy this story as much as I did!

I really enjoyed this story. It’s funny and engaging until tax season progresses, then it becomes scary.

About Cary Area Writer's Group (CAWG)

Who Are We? We are a group who live, meet, and support each other in Cary, Illinois. Writers… that is what we call ourselves, but we are so much more than that. We have full time jobs, full time kids and full time hassles like anyone else. We don’t come up with stories. we live them. The only thing different about us is that we write them down. We don’t sleep. We have deadlines that are constantly looming and we always hope for that elusive quiet that never quite finds its way to our lives. If you think you can keep up with this pace, if you can put down the phone long enough to write a sentence or two and make sense, well I’m sorry to say you’re a writer and I know what you’re going through. Stick to it. Publication is just around the corner and then you can sit down. Or can you? It’s all in a day’s work but you know you wouldn’t trade it in. It’s who you are. By Grace Rellie

    I’ve read this and I have some advise. Buy a copy soon and then close the door to the outside world and concentrate on how someone else does the tax business. It’s an adventure in disguise as well as a soft arm chair knuckler. I know you’ll enjoy it.

    Tax Season is here… read this story and you’ll be sure to have someone else do it for you. Remember that Angels have 2 sides and you don’t know which one is inside you until it’s too late. Read this story to find out which one Kimi is. I think she’ll surprise you.
