Yesterday (November 1) marked the start of pancreatic cancer awareness month and with it the 3rd edition release of my novella ‘Dusk and Summer.’ I wrote this in 2008 and after a number of years, the publishing rights have reverted back to me. And so now I share it with you! Trust me, you will not read another story quite like this. I’ll be donating a portion of proceeds from my book to the Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer research in honor of my father.


‘Does Heaven await beneath the waves? One man needs to know.


When his dying father whispers a cryptic message to him, he has no choice but to summon his courage and begin the quest for a lifetime. It’s a race against time to realize his father’s wish and fulfill his own destiny; it’s a discovery of the unbreakable bond between father and son. It’s a journey of the heart that unfolds where only the Chosen exist – in the moments between Dusk and Summer.’
