About the Book

Tempers would flare with the old man breaking his promises yet again. My anger would overcome me when I planned his demise that he’d never hurt us ever again. With tall tales of Whiskey Holler and times gone past old Harry at ninety, would become a dear friend of mine. It was uplifting Calvin’s return and with a host of others to work the woods, especially with James falling in love and never being around when I needed him. The moon and stars reflecting in her eyes kindled my desire of a first kiss. The unexpected shock when the face a boy my age peered through the cars window, that of a half-brother? I yearned for the day that I might beat all others to feel a thin tape snap across my chest victorious once again. I’d crawl no further wailing of my losses, there’d be no miracle.

About the Author

I am finished with my three book series, ‘The Second Born.’ For many years I kept this story to myself thinking it might not be book worthy. But in 2001 I read a book that lit the fire in my heart, the very thing I needed, to write this novel. And for many years I worked on it with every chance I got. The Dead Giants, The Reverends Ways, and The Gant House all tie together to reveal the struggles in a young boys life in a place where change never came easy. From personal experiences of love and sometimes it’s tragedies come the settings for one’s best works.
