REVIEW

Richard (a retired professor of English Literature) says... "I really cared about your characters.  The plotline of DOLLAR LAKE is like racing along a twisting highway and taking an exit at 60 miles per hour."    

 

 

SYNOPSIS 
 

Will McDonald is living an idyllic life in small town Middle America.  A star on his swim team and a top performer in the classroom, the young man is secure in his belief that he has earned the respect of everyone he knows.  However, a kiss on his cheek from an admiring girl in his grade one afternoon sets into motion a transition in his life which forever alters the youngster’s understandings about himself and the world around him. 

   

After suffering through the humiliation of a very personal physical assault from an older boy at his school who had witnessed the kiss, Will embarks upon a period of hesitation and self-doubt over the most basic aspects of who he is as a person.  Soon though, he becomes aware of other boys he knows who have been similarly abused by the same older boy and in order to prevent anyone else  from being harmed in the same way, Will rallies himself to confront the bully.  The shocking events which follow will keep the reader guessing about the outcome for both youths until the end. 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 SYNOPSIS 

 

While his parents move to Europe in order to accept a transfer for work, young Clint Adams enrolls eagerly into a New England boarding school.  Thrilled with the opportunity for independence and adventure, the 13-year-old acclimates instantly to his new surroundings and to the people he finds living there.  Soon though, the young prep-schooler discovers himself set upon and ultimately at the mercy of the base interests of some of the older students who live with him on the campus.   Unable to stop what is happening to him, in a very short period of time the young man’s innocence is taken from him and replaced with an education about life that had not been advertised in the school’s catalog. 

 

Told from the actual events endured by the author while he lived at the first of the four boarding schools he attended as a youth, Boarding School is a fictionalized account of the friendships, the desperation, the constant presence of evil and the inspiring way in which the author succeeded in eventually rising above it all.  Not for the faint of heart, the reader should be prepared for a hash story about an often ignored aspect of our culture.

 

 

 

SYNOPSIS 

 

No longer as innocent or as happy-go-lucky as he once was, Will McDonald is still struggling one year later to put his life back together after the physical assaults he was forced to endure at the hands of an older kid in his school named Jake.  Fortunately, with the help of his friends, the youth has succeeded in settling in once again to his small town life in Middle-America. 

 

Soon, during a party at a classmate’s lake-house to celebrate the beginning of summer vacation, Will meets a girl who, once night has fallen, leads the young man into the secluded waters of the lake where together the couple then shares his first prolonged romantic encounter.  Exhilarated the next day from his experience in the lake, Will and three friends find their fortunes changed when they are confronted suddenly by Jake and three new friends of the older kid’s from prison.  During the next twenty-four hours, the nefarious indulgences of an elite group of civic and business leaders of a nearby city, the efforts of survival by a young runaway and a clandestine U.S. Government program which is intended to compromise the legitimacy of political opponents worldwide will all have a direct impact on the futures of Will and his three friends.  Taken from the headlines of the day, Dollar Lake will keep the reader astonished and in suspense right up until the last word.    

 AUTHOR'S NOTE...

 

Right now I'm in the middle of a re-edit on The Culvert.  When I first wrote this book, I didn't have the kind of technology available to me that I have today.  So visually, I missed a great deal.  In addition, my publisher at the time was no help when they edited the book.  Many have told me that they believe that The Culvert is actually my best work or at least the story that they can relate to the most.  So I am taking the time necessary to make this second edition of this book be the best that it can be.  Consequently, I am asking that you be patient with me as I complete this re-edit.  When you finally see an ISBN lable on the back cover photo above, then you will know that you may purchase my second edition.  Thanks.
