David R Lewis
A cop, artist, musician, firearms instructor, fishing guide, public speaker, ranch hand, radio personality and novelist, David R. Lewis has seen life through many eyes and from many perspectives. From childhood on the banks of the Sangamon River to adulthood on a metropolitan police department, through hardscrabble years deep in the Ozark Mountains to working in broadcasting, David has gathered a wealth of life experience that is as evident in his words as it is on his face.
David lives with his wife, Laura, in the country outside Kansas City on seven miles of bad road, where he watches turkeys, dodges deer, argues with two Australian cattle dogs, and devotes his time to writing.

Published on May 21, 2013.
The year is 1971. Gary Frost and Roger Dix are partners on the police department. Because of a dumb cop and a stupid accident, racial tensions are running high.
This book is a work of fiction largely based in fact. It is not politically correct. It is honest, accurate, and raw. Hit the street with Frost and Dix, but keep your head on a swivel. It's time to play Cowboys and Indians.

- I Run: A Novel
on Nov. 18, 2013
I Run was anything but my usual fare. I read and write for escape, but there was no escape here. I Run spilled out of the pages and landed on me...hard. It is a near avalanche of need, regret, fear, and hope that immerses the reader to the earlobes in the life of a woman and the child she is and was. A well-maintained and tightly packaged stream of consciousness that is both literate and literary, I Run had me from the start. I chased Sally through the pages in spite of what clawed its way to my surface.
Ms. Farris’ voice is alarmingly honest in this work, the type of honesty that pulls the reader along for the run. It is a frightening and uplifting jumble of addiction, obsession, and condition that is artfully balanced with hope and love. I left some things behind because of this book, things I didn’t realize I still carried, and that is just some of its power. It is a courageous work of scattered imagery, as if, through Sally, one glimpses himself in a broken mirror. The author pulls no punches and softens no blows.
If you’re looking for something to read while drinking hot chocolate in front of a roaring fire as you nibble on a plate full of S’mores, this ain’t it. If you’re looking for something vital and necessary that will show you pieces and parts of what makes all of us who and what we are, and who and what we can become, I highly recommend it.
I Run is a masterful work.
