About the Book

Twenty-four years have passed since Jake and Evelyn fell hopelessly in love and ran off together, leaving behind their families and the carnival life. Now Jake, a special forces soldier, has recently retired from the army with a sense of pride and an insufficient pension. Evelyn wants to return to the carnival life of their youth. Jake firmly opposes. Struggling to suppress memories of a rough childhood, haunting of ill-fated combat missions, and the turmoil of fitting into civilian life, Jake falls off the edge of rational thought. He befriends Sandy, who charms him into taking her away from an abusive husband. In pursuit of a more exciting life, Jake and Sandy find themselves on an unexpected quest that reveals who he is, where he belongs, and what is really important. The journey on his old Harley Davidson takes the reader on a gripping adventure that passes through hostile-fire combat, an inside look at carnival life, and across several states on the open road, steps ahead of the law as danger mounts and climactic events unfold.


About the Author

Mike and Bernie Sweigart (brothers) co-authored Two-Ticket Ride. Growing up in a single parent home, in a poverty-stricken neighborhood, they spent much of their youth making up stories and imagining a different life to soften their harsh reality. As adults they developed successful careers. Bernie, a combat veteran with a career in the Air Force, is currently a Diplomatic Courier with the US State Department. Mike established himself as a professional in banking and financial services. After years apart the Sweigart brothers are back, combining their talents and rekindling the same imagination that allowed them to dream themselves out of poverty. They use their innate writing abilities and draw on personal backgrounds, life experiences, travels and insights to frame their exciting stories and enlightening characters.
