Christopher David Petersen (1963 - 20??). Born and raised in Connecticut. As a child, I was always daring and reckless. Never one to let common sense stand in the way of a great adventure, my bold feats of stupidity were legendary... Huckleberry Finn would have been proud.
"Surprisingly", that same spirit carried over into adulthood, as I sought out entertainment that included: scuba diving; ski Mountaineering; mountain biking; Rock, Ice and Mountain climbing; flying planes; golf, motorcycles, the stock market and of course, experimentation with various alcoholic refreshments.
Later in life, writing became an extension of my deep desire to experience "new and exciting worlds". I have written several books, but none have been published through any formal channels... I've heard the process is long, painful and laborious, the thought of which sickens me. My foray into e-publishing came after a friend suggested my works could fetch dollars instead of dust inside my sock drawer... a righteous observation. My recent publications are the result of this advice. Further adventure/suspense novels are soon to be released.
An engineer by trade, I have worked all over the U.S. and usually write in my spare time... that is when I'm not enjoying a bottle of Scotch and a quality cigar. I am a naturally long-winded individual, so writing is what happens when I can't get anyone to listen to me anymore...
I love all kinds of genres but gravitate more towards suspense. There is nothing like the build up to a great climax... What a rush!

This book reminded me of the movie, Groundhog Day.. That being said, I loved this book! This book was able to hold my interest thoroughly and not once was I bored, although 1) I knew immediately the Riley family had died, 2) they didn't know it, 3) each day started out pretty much the same way, and this went on through most of the book. The images painted by the author's descriptions were so beautiful, I could actually picture the whole scene and keep it throughout the book. I read this book in less than 12 hrs, which isn't saying much, except that I had to stop a few times, to charge my tablet, cook supper and eat, and to deal with the 3 kids that continuously need my attention. I stayed up rather late finishing it, because I just couldn't stop reading it. Although I knew that the family was dead, it drew me in waiting to see what would happen next, when and how they would figure it out, and to "see" when they finally moved on. I say see, because even now I can see everything in my mind in great detail, and it's beautiful. The author did a great job wrapping it up for the ending also, I loved how he kept the story going after they had all moved on and let the readers know how the events of this family had impacted lives way on down the line. I usually read YA paranormal romance type novels, this one was not exactly in that category, but a great read and I look forward to reading more from this author!
I give this book a solid 4.5 stars. The happiness of the story is still lingering in me the next day after reading it... A feel good story that I recommend to all, and I believe I learned quite a bit about myself and the parent I want to be.
