After years of working in the aerospace industry, my fascination with stories and people's lives led me to study writing. I have a deep respect for how well-crafted writing can both convey a message and hold the reader's interest. The stories I write encompass large themes by bringing them down to the personal level. The people in my stories struggle with the triumphs and failings over their position in life. They face decisions, chances and fates that force them into reactions and hard choices. Putting a story together, whether written, spoken or sung is not a random act; it requires attention to both content and presentation. My hope is that readers will read not only for entertainment, but also to learn and ask further questions.

Excellent book! Fast paced with a point to the story. Appears to have fixed the editing errors the other reviewer refers to.

This is one of the best stories I've read by a new author. The plot is original and well told, and the characters are thoroughly developed and interesting. If it weren't for the lack of editing the rating would be a five, but missing words, extra words and confusing sentence structure detract from the reading pleasure enough to rate it a three. If the author would edit the work and republish his story he could have a winner.
