Michael DeStefano


Big or small, some have an adventure gene that at times begs to chuck it all, hit the open road, allowing life to unfold one day at a time, as an ironical and chaotic world would see fit. I have no statistics to bear this out, but imagine nowadays it’s a minute percentage who take such risks with no certainty of reward. I’m not in that minute percentage, so therefore have created a character to do my dirty work, live the fantasy…to be a game changer!
I’m of no particular faith, nor do I have a singular conviction in such matters. Although, when reading The Prodigy of Saint Pete’s I will call upon the atheists in the room to take a leap of faith. It is through faith that Andy can begin his journey. It is through faith that he survives.

Andy stands alone in the hallway, trembling, his sweaty hand clutching to the doorknob. He knows what lies on the other side of the door and what he must do. Though, should he summon the courage to open it, the world that he has come to know will end. The question is, can Andy Trumaine, the once orphaned boy, sacrifice himself for another?
