In this second book in the Fury series, Macy continues his exploration of emotions in a vivid and carefully researched tale depicting the ravages of child sexual victimization. He brings to life the trauma experienced by both a mother figure and her abused daughter. Ruined takes place in San Francisco during the Gold Rush. When twelve-year-old Bekah is abandoned by her father after her mother dies, Ann adopts the girl into her life. Just as they are planning to head East, Bekah's father returns and coaxes his daughter back to him; but life with her dad is far from ideal.

Ruined invites the reader into the dark world of abuse. When does fighting give way to acceptance? Why do we blame ourselves for failing to prevent evil? What kind of anchor can keep us from being sucked into deadly confrontations with our fears? How is it we can know something to be true but not believe it? Will Ann and Bekah be able to overcome their trials and meet again?

About the Author

Tom is an author, programmer, and speaker. His love is researching an historical topic and then writing about it. Stories based on real, common historical people and their problems are the most intriguing. While the world changes over time, our emotions remain the same-fear is fear; bitterness is bitterness; love is love. Events are the catalysts that prompt the feelings that often determine who we are, who we become. First Fury, based on a true story, delves into the depths of bitterness. Ruined, the second book in the Fury series takes the reader into the ravages of child sexual victimization. The Courage of Your Faith is a series of 12 short stories with Bible studies base on the influence of Baptists on the history of the United States. Story Planner Tools was developed to help authors and is based on input from reference materials and conferences.
In addition to writing, Tom enjoys his grandchildren, church life, fishing, skiing, hiking and snowshoeing with his wife Sandy. They love their home in Windsor, Colorado. People have said Sandy has a flower fetish. Because of the beauty she creates, Tom feeds that fetish!
