Overview

Alex Smith is an ordinary joe lost in an ordinary world, a cruel and dreary place where nothing turns out as planned. He works the night shift at a dead end job that barely pays the bills, his sleazy landlord swindles any money that's left over, his apartment only a tiny box with roaches for company. His absent father suddenly walks back into his life asking for redemption, his friends gone or unavailable. What makes matters worse is that Alex is taunted by recurring dreams where he wakes to an empty world, where there is no one left around but him, nothing but empty streets and an empty city. Put simply, his life is a boat without oars in a sea of shallow water, and all he wishes for is some inkling to life purpose, a direction to happiness and self worth.

When Lexi, a recently impregnated prostitute crosses his path, he invites her to stay with him for a time until she can get her own life together. This small act of kindness will send him down a bizarre spiral of events that will change his life in a way he never could have predicted, and into a shape that could only come from life itself.

Meet the Author

J.C. Henderson grew up in the remote California farming town Rio Vista, where he often contemplated and reflected on his thoughts while overlooking the Sacramento River and the rolling yellow hills. He also spent his time writing-- because there was nothing better to do, but also because the ideas would never leave him alone unless he started writing them down.After high school he moved to Stockton to study at San Joaquin Delta College for music and psychology, and then moved to Sacramento, for literature and creative writing. He writes about the underdogs, the weirdoes, losers and rebels we all know or wish we could be. He likes breaking the fourth wall, parenthetical phrases, and building soundtracks to listen to while he writes. He self-published Halfway To Nowhere in 2011, and Say It Ain't So, a novella, in 2013.
