Happy Father's Day

I post here once a month and I usually talk about my recent release.  As a writer, one of the dreaded tasks we have to do is promotion.  However this month I decided I wasn't going to promote my latest release, Love Means... Patience, and instead I'm going to talk about Father's Day. 

I was lucky enough to have an engaged father who took us places and did things with my brother, sister, and I.  We went on family vacations, he took us camping, and hiking. did boy scouts and all that sort of stuff.  My dad helped me build Pinewood Derby cars and then when it was time, taught me how to drive a real car.  He believed in hard work and instilled that in all of us mainly because he worked hard his entire life.  My dad still works hard and probably will until he can't any longer.

He put his children first and sometimes went without so we could have a chance at a better life and experience things he never could.  My dad was and is a special man, the kind of person I aspire to be.  So Happy Father's Day to my dad and to all the Father's and Dad's out there.  May this day be special and bright for all of you!!!!

Okay, so maybe I'll promote a little.  :)  After all this story does have a family in it with the parents we all wished we had.  Enjoy the day!!!!!

Years after his discharge from the Marines under “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” Cody Culver lives in a PTSD-induced world all his own. On a mission, under misconceptions that Geoff and Eli are the enemy, Cody breaks into their farmhouse but is quickly brought back to his senses by a frying pan to the head. After receiving much needed help in the hospital, Cody has nowhere to go. Luckily, kindhearted Eli knows just where to turn.

When Eli asks former Marine Brick Hunter to help, Brick isn’t sure he wants to get involved. But Brick has worked through his own PTSD, and like it or not, he owes Eli a favor. With Cody struggling to rejoin the real world and Brick agreeing to take him in, they discover they have more in common than either of them thought possible.

Though Cody tries to stay in the here and now, he sometimes flashes to unexplainable traumatic events—events that don’t fit his usual war zone delusions. As the “delusions” grow more frequent, it becomes apparent they might not be delusions at all. Cody may have actually witnessed a murder.
