About the Book

Set in the mountains of Central Pennsylvania, “One Grey Night It Happened” recognizes the natural beauty and rich cultural heritage of Pennsylvania’s wilderness region. Running from a notorious mountain clan, a young and defiant Jeremiah Willis departs Arrowhead Mountain and enrolls in Bloomington High School. A black transfer student and gifted athlete, Lucas Bradshaw, enrolls that same morning. The day before he enrolled, Lucas witnessed a school massacre in his Virginia school, Robert E Lee Academy, and now is the target of a massive manhunt. Sparks fly when Jeremiah and Lucas meet. They form an unlikely alliance and become allies in the fight against bullies, racists, and corrupt officials. The boys share a deep reverence for nature. When developers plan a million-dollar Dream House on Arrowhead Mountain, Jeremiah and Lucas work together to protect the forests. Suspense mounts at a torrid pace. Either tragedy or triumph awaits Jeremiah and Lucas.

About the Author

Michael Fields has a BS/Ed from Edinboro University (PA) and an MA/English from the University of Dayton. As a Peace Corps teacher in Southeast Asia, the author met John Steinbeck (1967), who was covering the Vietnam War for the Philadelphia Inquirer. The 1962 Nobel Prize recipient related to the author that every man of energy has the need, using his mind and imagination, “to have something that wasn’t there before.” Motivated by this statement, Michael wrote often and created a fictional world “that wasn’t there before.” Michael says his world is replete with hatred, violence, and sudden tragedy. Yet in his bleak world, kindness and love and compassion can and will triumph. Michael’s six books are set in the beautiful environs of Pennsylvania. The Twin River series was critically praised for its high energy and suspense: Twin River II – “This grisly thriller will sink its teeth right in you.” Twin River III – “A fast-paced, thought-provoking look at the chilling violence of nature and man.” Twin River IV – “This novel, involving young adults, is the true definition of a hair-raising thriller.” And “The latest visit to Twin River becomes an exhilarating exercise in sustained, multipronged tension.”
