a distilled spirit. pained prose from a bar… these are conversations heard both outside and inside my head, interludes drawn from sights seen in front of and behind my eyes; an encapsulation of regret and regression, death and demise. they are the interpretation of lives unraveling before me. become my companion interloper as you sip from this collection, or slam it back in a gulp. pain is beautiful. pull up a chair.

Does Heaven await beneath the waves? One man needs to know. When his dying father whispers a cryptic message to him, he has no choice but to summon his courage and begin the quest of a lifetime. It’s a race against time to realize his father’s wish and fulfill his own destiny; it’s a discovery of the unbreakable bond between father and son. It’s a journey of the heart that unfolds where only the Chosen exist – in the moments between Dusk and Summer.

“A poignant, metaphoric conversation between son and father. A story that will warm your heart.” –Yvonne S. Thornton, M.D., bestselling author of The Ditchdigger’s Daughters.

The author will be donating a portion of the proceeds from this book to the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research.
