I marvel at the creativity and imagination of children. In the absence of gadgets, electronics and the like, the younger ones still manage to find something interesting, even if it involves playing with an empty box. They see castles and dragons; and rescue damsels in distress. They traverse mountains, soar with eagles, and hit the game winning homerun. It so simple. Yet beautifully creative.
I never hit a homeroom, sank the winning shot, or scored a touchdown. Growing up, I played all of the sports, but not the way they were meant to be played. In my hometown we had expectations. We didn't have an "everyone plays rule". Our rule was simple. Only the best, most deserving played. And that wasn't me. But my brothers, well, they were Massillon Tigers.
I'm happy to announce that my latest work, Seven Days in June, is now available on Amazon.com. The novel explores what the main character, Bobby Foster,an unemployed part-time college student, must do when when he found himself unexpectedly thrust into a circumstance against his will and completely out of his control. It's a circumstance that required him to make choices and come to decisions that would alter his life's direction and dramatically impact the lives of family and close friends.
