The Buffalo Kid

John Ross, a 71 year-old homeless man, is walking the streets as a cold blustery wind shakes him and an empty stomach growls back. He asks a man for money, who promptly hands him $50 and walks away. Shocked by the stranger's generosity, the Kid follows him and soon finds himself caught in the web of a bizarre test of humanity and a thrill-ride that will force him to face his own demons. More

About Réal Laplaine

Love coffee, reading, binge-watching Netflix and HBO - and of course writing.

I'm an activist for human rights and equality; I believe that nuclear weapons must be entirely banned and that we must advance our culture to relying on the one quality which humanity excels in - our intelligence; and where necessary, take on the bullies in the world like men and not cower behind weapons of mass destruction or war. Where I grew up, you met bullies in an alley or the school yard and it was all over in minutes.

I know, through a lifetime of searching, that our potential as people far exceeds what we are generally taught to believe and that there is a lot of snake oil being sold as the road to "salvation".

I come from Canada, but I spent many years working in the United States, a great country and a wonderful people, but one plagued with a terribly dysfunctional system of politics which is dividing the nation and eroding the principles that made it great.

Today, I live in Sweden with my wife and two cats, where I write and publish, as well as providing management consultation and recruiting to companies - which I specialized in while living in America for over thirty years.

I also created and oversee two forums, International Writers Inspiring Change, to help promote my fellow authors, and Equality: It's our Right! to promote human rights and to spotlight the issue of human trafficking in our world. Two of my books, See Me Not and Quantum Assault, are thematically based on sex trafficking rings and while fictionalized scenarios, are based on fact, not fiction.

So, with that lengthy diatribe - enjoy the visit.


Buffalo Kid - a story about falling and rebounding
The Buffalo Kid is fictional realism, a story inspired by real people. An elderly homeless man, forgotten and destitute, meets a stranger from another world. The two strike up a bond and the alien visitor helps the Kid rebound, giving him a second chance at life. The thrill ride which ensues proves that anyone can fall, but what counts is standing up for what matters in life.
