Overview

Over the last few decades our Country and World have become incredibly corrupt. It seems everything is for sale, our economy, our heritage, and our morals. Some might take offence at this statement, but I feel its time for a change. If we can bank online we can vote online, without any fear of the votes being rigged.

Overview

Over the last few decades our Country and World have become incredibly corrupt. It seems everything is for sale, our economy, our heritage, and our morals. Some might take offence at this statement, but I feel its time for a change. If we can bank online we can vote online, without any fear of the votes being rigged. That's more than we can say about political elections today. If our beloved Country has a chance we need to fire all of our corporate owned politicians and vote ourselves. The media would gladly fill us in on the details of bills to be voted on, we could vote once a week. I pray this happens in my life time. Soon there won't be much left!

Meet the Author

John Dalton
John Dalton
A world traveler and a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, John Dalton writes with clarity and precision -- offering a debut novel -- Heaven Lake -- that reflects both his deep familiarity with Asian culture and his exquisite craftsmanship.

Biography

John Dalton was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, the youngest of seven children. Upon graduation from college, he received a plane ticket to travel around the world, and so began an enduring interest in travel and foreign culture. During the late 1980s he lived in Taiwan for several years and traveled in Mainland China and other Asian countries. He attended the University of Iowa Writer's Workshop in the early 1990s and was awarded two fellowships at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown as well as a James Michener/Paul Engle Award for his (then) novel-in-progress, Heaven Lake. He presently lives with his wife in North Carolina.

Good To Know

Some interesting outtakes from our interview with Dalton:

"I worked for several years at the Barnes & Noble in Ladue, Missouri."

"When I was 23 and graduated from college, my older brother gave me a plane ticket to travel around the world. I went to Hawaii, Fiji, Australia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and then on to Europe, traveling mostly on my own."

"I had nothing to do with the invention of the periodic table."

"I play Frisbee golf as a hobby -- I once threw a hole-in-one."

    One of the most enlighteng books I ever read

    Its amazeing how John Dalton took a book about the Mob and many people of power and hide it in this magical story of Ghost and Demons with a twist of the Music industry people can only now begin to understand. This the only way he could have found anyone with the gutes to print his explosive story. It's amazeing, beautifully written, a must read. Its hard to believe he survived to write this at all. Its bewildering. Soon to be a best seller.
