As a 44 year old father of three I've experienced my share of parenting issues. Coming from a family of five also provided fertile grounds from which to draw upon life's experiences. Having always had a desire to write, I have discovered late in life that I also may have a knack for it. I hope to tell a good story through interesting characters that readers of all ages will enjoy.
Emotionally gripping, the author weaves a spell binding tale of friendship and love and loss that will captivate the imagination of the reader. The tone is eerily poetic prose and the characters are a rare mixture of oddness and familiarity. It's a superb read which readers will associate with intimately, but will come away with a profoundly new insight to living and dying.

Will he save his friends or himself?
