WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?
I'm a lover of all things Americana. Good, bad, and in the sordid twists and triumphant turns that define us. We are a godly nation, revered for our unique form of government and values. But I had been asleep since the 1960s as critical theories infiltrated public and private education, and the great rewrite of history began. When, at the ripe age of 60, I was compelled to write fiction, opportunity came knocking to auto-correct our timeline's distortions. Writing fiction also liberates the right side of my brain to indulge in creativity and compassion. Reading or writing certainly makes us better listeners.
Who else feels the hunger--to know the complete, unabridged historical perspective? An educated person, or a future generation, will be the beneficiary. We certainly do not sanction the evil from our present, and past mistakes. But why throw out the Baby Jesus in the mirky bathwater of cultural challenge? There is a plan, and we're part of it.
My hope is you'll fall in love with our great country again. Upmarket fiction should pivot with plausible plots and vibrant local color. My endearing, fallible characters are anchored in this morning's headlines. Love it or leave it, CARRINGTON brings the best of America back to life. Ultimately, the journey will be infused with wisdom and humor. Odds are, when viewed through an empathetic lens, we will see goodness. Grounded in loyalty and forgiveness, big love will always come pulling into the station. All aboard--Volume 7, The Last Verse, and everyone's getting off.
