W. A. Holdsworth lives in Michigan and attended the University of Michigan, Oakland University, and Michigan State University, earning an engineering degree and an MBA. He’s worked as a business and government consultant, and now serves as a Director for one of the largest counties in the U.S. An avid reader of adventure novels, he didn’t begin writing until his late thirties while working and raising a family. A fan of the Arthurian legend, he wanted to bring the story of Arthur and Camelot into the modern world with a series of novels that are both exciting and meaningful. The result was Traverse, and its sequel Novum Orbis Regium. He is now writing the next book in the trilogy.
William "Mac" MacCrarey has invited Death to come for him on a lonely winter's night in the small northern town of Traverse. As the end draws near, vivid and revealing scenes from his past flash through his mind, laying bare a sad and lonely life.
