Overview

Book Two of the Solitaire trilogy

The horrors of the Vietnam War robbed a seventeen-year-old boy, an ordinary soldier, an MP, of his youth, and turned him into an extraordinary man. He endured events so traumatic that they pushed him outside of society and the world. Now he remains lost from that world, dead to all who ever knew him, struggling to serve a country that took his life and identity away forever. He exists alone with a different name and identity on every mission--no place to call home, nowhere to find rest, until the day he is too slow. He is so thoroughly and completely lost from the world that he has even forgotten who he is himself, where he came from, what path took him to the outside, and why he does what he does. How much longer can he remain sane? Is it already too late?

About the Author

I was born and raised in Decatur, Illinois, but moved to the Moweaqua area around 1991. I like small towns and rural settings, as does my wife of thirty-five years, Barbara. We have two grown children, John and Anna to whom I dedicated my first book, The First Suitor. I started writing about fifteen years ago as a diversion from my regular job as an attorney. At that time I had been practicing law in Central Illinois for about fifteen years and was looking for another avenue to exercise my writing and organizational skills. Now after thirty years of practicing law I would like to write full time, but yet I find myself full time in the law and part time in writing. I enjoy telling stories and some would say that all lawyers are born fiction writers, because fiction is all they write in the first place. I have to admit that there is some truth to that.

I now have have nine books published by First Suitor Enterprises, and more manuscripts in the works. I recently removed all of my books from my print publisher and have put them on Amazon in Kindle format, Kobo, Apple, Smashwords, and other digital sites. In the future I plan to publish all of my books in ebook format.

Recently I have retired from the private practice of law and have relocated to Louisville, Kentucky.

I try to draw on my experiences in the practice of law and my life experiences in general to give realism to my stories and characters. In the 1970s I served in the U.S. Army as a Military Policeman and in the late '80s, I was a Captain in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General Corps, Army National Guard. I have been to Germany, France, Belgium, Holland, and many of the United States. I like to work the settings of the places I've been and things I've done into my stories. I write romance into almost every book, but it isn't always the main theme and it is never explicit or vulgar.

I am foremost and always an entertainer and that is why I write fiction, but I try to make it real and believable as well as entertaining.
