Swim in the Lake of Fire [NOOK Book]

Overview

It seemed like swimming in a calm, cool lake. I hardly noticed them disappear, one at a time, here and there for no common reason I could see until suddenly, the benign water roiled, turned to fire and the evil vision rose in full view.

Meet the Author

Yes, I was a cog in the industrial machine, grinding out reams of technical and business writing to support the once mighty American manufacturing colossus. But something happened in the early spring of 1995 – a bolt of lightening from the god of letters. “Fiction,” She said. Bit-by-bit I tried it, a little more each year till it became for me the quixotic enterprise it is today. Yet, I can’t complain, though my family may from time-to-time, because I found in this experience a liberation of style and content that is very appealing, drawing me into a new kind of grinding – a love/hate enterprise that wears the repetitive trudge down to fine dust.
