At the Alter of Men

I have finished my newest novel- At the Alter of Men.

AT THE ALTER OF MEN is a compelling, unadulterated and emotionally provocative journey of one young black man's search for normalcy. In the style of James Baldwin and Zora Neale Hurston, this tale explores issues of race, sexuality, religion and the needs for love and acceptance.

“My first three books, the collections, were fun to write and a great start but I have matured so much as a writer since then and am extremely proud of the Detective Byone novels- they will be my legacy!”

“There are few things in this life as simultaneously simple and complicated as love...except perhaps greed.”
Det. Mose Byone

“Perfect is a dream that you wake up from and spend forever trying to remember.”
Joseph Eastwood

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”
J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

“A slippery thing lives inside of me...holds me hostage. It writhes and twists, tearing at my gut and soul. It is hatred...simple dark hatred...but I don't know how to live without it!”
Detective Moses Byone The Shiver Men

“Which is the true nightmare, the horrific dream that you have in your sleep or the dissatisfied reality that awaits you when you awake?”
