Sometimes the most difficult thing to do is the only thing left to do.
I write because I desire to write more than anything else. I write because it is an outlet that brings me to challenge myself and push myself to the brink of reality, where I jump over the edge into the abyss of the unknown. As I fall into the darkness a light comes on and I begin to create. The spark that ignites the imagination lights up a region of my mind that is awakened and excited by the challenge and the rush as I fall faster and faster. Until just before I hit the ground I realize I have created an idea that I can run with. I then hit the ground running, never looking back only looking ahead to the final page that will bring life the characters that entertain and amuse.
I continue to challenge myself everyday as I open my mind to the continuing story of "Usher of Truth" The novel has passed the halfway stage and is in its final stretch. I will soon begin to work on the cover in anticipation of the second completed work of the series.
It all began with "Ways of War" where the characters were introduced into the dark world as it existed after World War II. The Cold War brought about the fears some of which still prey upon us today. As we moved through "Ways of War" and out of the Vietnam Struggle we move into a time when we would be tested in increments and in many case taken by surprise. "Usher of Truth" brings out of the shadows the evil that has haunted our nation for decades. These little horrors are unveiled and the truth ushers in a realization that much healing is still needed. Our brave men have returned to American life only to have their needs pushed aside and not addressed. This causes further strain on our nation and as some things are addressed others are labeled and pushed to the back of the closet.
You will be surprised to find that as "Usher of Truth" exits stage left you will be left with a haunting question that will be addressed in "Days of Doom" where we move into our current generation and issues. As we move out of "Usher of Truth" you will clearly question some of what we label as mind control and brainwashing. You will be pushed to the edge of a reality we know and begin to ask, "Could this be true?" Some things are stranger than fiction.
