I spent twenty-five years in the wonderful world of road construction. Back surgery in 2010 put the skids on that career. My body couldn’t handle the rigors of twelve to sixteen hour days, six to seven days a week. As I convalesced, licking my wounds, I wondered what to do next. Not being out in the sun getting baked, or dodging traffic, was going to be a hard act to follow. Seriously, what else did I know? An article in the Dallas Morning News caught my eye. It was about being a professional speaker. Hmm. That sounds interesting. Becoming mobile again, I took a seat in front of the blank monitor, pondering what to write. Let’s start with something we know—my life.
The first work was titled “God’s Plan: A Glimpse Into One’s Life.” I re-titl

It is fangtastic Cedric. Reviewing one book, working on sequels to Occupation and Gateway: Pioche. Reviewing material from a buddy of mine who I'm helping chronicle his tales of being a tour bus driver and sorting through two poetry books going out this month. Other than that, nothing exciting. Enjoy your 4th and thanks for adding to the TBR. Very nice.


Cedric Nye Jeff,
Thank you for accepting my Friend request. I put "Occupation" on my "to read" shelf, for sure! I hope you are having a FANGtastic day!
All my best,

Jeff Dawson Wanted to pass on this information for those who aren't on Face Book. They delted the book cover for "Occupation." Something about offensive material. You can view the cover at the following link and make your own assessment:http://www.elance.com/s/bobbiart/
