Overview

“When a person thinks with conviction, the action has already begun.”
HOPE FEEDS STRENGTH, BUT FAITH BUILDS UP THE FUTURE’S TRUTH

From the Publisher that brought you popular short story series Witching Call, Hostile Hearts, Earthbound Angels, The January Morrison Psychic Files, Chains of Darkness, Friend Zone, and now, The Magaram Legends Series...

Immediately after returning to the Human Realm, Julio arranges to leave his hometown for the capital of the province. The details of the task given to him couldn’t be vaguer. The only thing that kept him going was a half remembered teary-eyed promise as he was sent back from the Magaram Realm.
Set against a backdrop of the stirrings of World War II, Faith follows the beginning of Julio’s mission. Our hero lands a job as a local Jail Guard. When the nation falls under the might of the Imperial Japanese Army, the mission immediately gains clarity, and Julio suddenly finds himself employed and serving the enemies that he was supposed to take down!
Now identified as a Japanese sympathizer, Julio finds himself alone. As the months roll by, he begins to doubt. How can one man turn the tide?
Insightful and fun to read, Full Circle is a must if you are a fan of historical adventures -- with a twist.

EXCERPT

“I asked you, what is your name?” repeated the General, who was already facing him.
He was caught off guard; he wasn’t paying attention to his surroundings anymore. When Makino asked him the second time, Julio was roused from his thoughts so quickly that he dropped all manner of focus required to mirror or continue his warrior state.
“Julio, Sir,” he replied.
“Julio. That is Spanish is it not?” the General asked.
“Yes, Sir,” he replied.
“I will forgive you this day, Julio, because I recognize your usefulness.”
Julio wasn’t sure what the commander meant, but he responded just the same.
“That is very kind of you, Sir.”
“Where did you learn to fight?”
“Back in my town, Sir. My father trained me out of boredom,” he replied, adding a small lie.
“He must have been very bored. You fight well,” the General said.
“Thank you, Sir,” he said, with a bow. “I am really sorry for fighting your soldiers.”
“Ah, yes, that,” Makino started. “Where is the office? I would like to offer you a blessing. Perhaps a curse. Still, I will let you decide.”
Julio could not formulate a response. All he could do was bow and lead the way.

Meet the Author

G.J. Winters “fell into” writing when a well-meaning teacher of his submitted his Creative Writing assignment for publication in the school paper. The local paper picked up the article and asked G.J. for publishing rights, to which the young G.J. agreed with some hesitation, as he felt “that wasn’t one of my best writings at the time.” The reality was that this article was written when G.J. was a junior in high school.The article, which was a fictionalized version of a local myth surrounding a famous abandoned house near a swamp, was an assignment turned in as part of a mid-term exam. The teacher, Miss Mendez, thought G.J.’s writing was “exemplary” and showed “natural, raw writing talent for a person his age." The assignment called for “providing details to a local urban myth – provide background, using a local resident’s POV, and close with a vague hint of authenticity and realism."The story, entitled “The Old Mansion by the Swamp,” appeared in the high school paper as a short story, but was later serialized in the local paper in 6 parts. G.J. added more characters and even a sub-story (which later became a story of its own, “I Was Shirley Massey” – a story which centered on a member of the fictional family who resided in the Massey Mansion in the late 70s and disappeared without a trace).With the success of both of his original series, G.J. thought to venture into writing longer stories, this time with futuristic themes, as he has always been fascinated with travelling through time, future crimes, apocalyptic themes, and stories set in civilizations from the future.G.J. identifies with sci-fi writers such as Isaac Asimov (“Kept me awake through most evenings in college.”) and Margaret Peterson Haddix (“My girlfriend at the time had fits of jealousy over my fanatical tendencies towards this author.”).G.J. holds a degree in Chemistry, is an intern at the R&D division of a pharmaceutical manufacturing company, and lives with girlfriend Deidre, a magazine editor.
