February 2015

Honorable Mention in General Fiction

Complete Kindle e-book Cover on February 18 Flattened

Don Juan Casanova wants to discover what it’s like to be loved by only one woman. His problem is that he was raised by his grandparents to become a Lothario, who loves and then leaves women for the next conquest, and as he approaches 40, he is facing a crisis. His grandfather and then younger brother have been viciously murdered, and Don is the prime suspect. As he struggles to stay out of jail and end his life of serial seductions and find one woman to love, he’s discovering it isn’t easy to kick an old habit, and his mother isn’t helping by quoting scripture every chance she gets in an attempt to change her son’s lifestyle of sin for one of piety.

 Praise for Running with the Enemy

“Obviously drawn from the author’s first-hand experiences as a Marine serving in Vietnam, Running with the Enemy is a rough but occasionally heartfelt war story. … The book is sometimes too obviously drawn from his experience. But ultimately that’s a small complaint about a book that, on the whole, is quite good and has a lot to say about the nature of the conflict …”
 – 21st Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards commentary from an anonymous judge

Praise for Crazy is Normal, a classroom expose

“His portrayal of life in the class room is stunning, realistic, and even a little scary. You really get the feeling you are that little fly on the wall.” – Dr. William L. Smith, who retired in June 2009 after 15 years as a Management Professor at Emporia State University, now holds Professor Emeritus status. Ph.D. from University of Arizona.

“Public school teachers will relate well to this book, as will other professionals who work with teens in challenging situations. This book is perhaps a strongest fit with college students who are interested in the teaching profession; it gives a sense of the challenges ahead and how to face them—the resources at the end of the book are also ideal for this audience.” – Judge, 2nd Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published eBook Awards.
