As family, we leave this year transformed by the storms of chaos and fear. We have all suffered. We have all despaired. And yet, rainbows appear. Some fill our skies, some reach us through a letter or another simple act of kindness. Always, rainbows tell us there is a reason for hope. Love alone can guide us, and guide us it must.
My simple Haiku response to the prompt ...
Earlier this year, just as the virus reared its ugly head, I began writing The Culmination. The underlying theme of this story is family. Though a political/military thriller, the message is persistent. We have a choice, always, to become family - in our country, in our world. If anything, the threats of 2020 taught us this truth and it may be vital that we heed the message.
I share below a few of the five-star reviews of The Culmination. Through this month, the Kindle version will remain at .99 cents.
The scope of the plot is vast. The reader moves from what appears to be simple situations of trouble to complex machinations that could lead to World War Three. The story involves multiple nations and heads of state. There are some surprising moments, as well as a tender love story.
If you like a book with plenty of action, compelling characters, political intrigue, military maneuverings, and a compelling love story, this one is for you."
