A native son of Texas, Raymond Carter Cantrell is the lone child of a computer engineer and an accountant. Growing up in a middle class house in a relatively homogenous suburb his early life could best be described as average. At a young age he did not make a billion dollar website, exhibit extraordinary physical prowess, nor demonstrate the charisma necessary to move millions to tears.
Upon graduation from Texas A&M he took a career in finance which was, for the most part, also average. He did neither well nor poorly, merely going through the motions necessary to collect a paycheck and thereby pay for goods and services which thereby allowed him to continue working said job.
One day in his mid 20’s he left his grey cube and never returned. On a whim he sold everything and began a career as a political consultant, prostituting himself on various street corners for whatever causes and projects people would pay him for. Some of the resulting experiences would later bear influence on his first novel, America in the Fall.
Today Raymond spends his time writing screenplays and producing film projects while living in a cabin just outside of the city. When not working he spends his time learning new skills or encouraging others on their own roads to success. Currently he has ongoing projects too numerous to mention here, but rest assured they are all thoroughly above average in quality.
“The secret to being successful is to just do things.” –Raymond Carter Cantrell

This is an interesting read from an interesting perspective. No bombs falling from space, thank goodness, and no earthquakes tearing things apart, so this book is closer to possible realism which some of us can appreciate, even though apocalyptic literature is usually sad enough in itself.
The text holds the readers attention and moves along at a good pace. In some respects it is even worth a second read.
I have come to distrust some of my fellow reviewers since they many times give five stars to anything they liked, so a four star is a high recommendation from me.
