It's great to hear from you again. I'll answer your questions together. 'Mary's Mountain' was something I simply felt I had to write as somewhat of a protest against the current misguidance by a certain segment of people who want to completely ignore some of the deepest truths about being human, and then fool the public about those truths. In "Mary's Mountain," Paul Dunaway, a college student and gifted writer, throws off his once heart-felt convictions for immediate personal gratification, allowing himself to be seduced by a woman of the intelligentsia who uses his talents to push a fake "tolerance," in order to change the cultural make-up of America.

Also, I'm so glad you liked "Birds of a Feather." And yes, it needs more exposure, though it was published with a few much appreciated blurbs by several on the Southern Trail.

As to another book coming out--I'm working on one now.

Thanks again for your support!(less)

The Hard Left’s IDOLATRY of SELF + SOCIALISM. 100% WRONG!!!

In the past some admirable politicians intended that their life’s work be their monument, but in this age of power hungry fame junkies far too many politicians make it all about the monument, and not about the work. Too many politicians, especially on the hard left, are examples of self-idolatry. Too many power-hungry politicians put […]

An Inspector Calls by J.B. Priestley
“We don't live alone. We are members of one body. We are responsible for each other. And I tell you that the time will soon come when if men will not learn that lesson, then they will be taught it in fire and blood and anguish. Good night.”

George Plimpton
“I have never been convinced there's anything inherently wrong in having fun. ”
George Plimpton

William Faulkner
“I decline to accept the end of man. It is easy enough to say that man is immortal simply because he will endure: that when the last dingdong of doom has clanged and faded from the last worthless rock hanging tideless in the last red and dying evening, that even then there will still be one more sound: that of his puny inexhaustible voice, still talking. I refuse to accept this. I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. The poet's, the writer's, duty is to write about these things. It is his privilege to help man endure by lifting his heart, by reminding him of the courage and honor and hope and pride and compassion and pity and sacrifice which have been the glory of his past. The poet's voice need not merely be the record of man, it can be one of the props, the pillars to help him endure and prevail.”
William Faulkner, Nobel Prize in Literature Acceptance Speech, 1949

George Orwell
“During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.”
George Orwell

Fulton J. Sheen
“for a woman, love is its own reason. "I love you because I love you.”
Fulton J. Sheen, Life Is Worth Living
