fOCUS, The (almost 100%) True Tale of an Intrepid News Photographer, is like nothing you've read before. This exciting novel is based on true-life stories of an experienced news videographer named Ron Sharp. Ron's career has highs, lows, grinding boredom and heart-racing excitement, sometimes all in the same day. Beauty, Heroism, Tragedy, and Evil - All part of the job.
Covering horrendous, unthinkable stories, of course, can damage a person's psyche. With someone like Ron, whose profession requires an artistically trained eye behind a video camera, exposure to real heartbreak and tragedy can be life changing.
Ron realizes, after years as a photojournalist, witnessing unimaginable events that most people will never see, that his experiences have taken a toll on him, and he attempts to "grow a suit of armor" to protect himself and those around him. When a new romantic relationship springs up in his life, this becomes his biggest challenge of all, forcing him to assess his values and the precious nature of love and life itself.
When Ron meets the woman of his dreams, the word complicated doesn't begin to describe his attempt at a relationship with her. Ron's dedication to journalism gets him into awkward situations with the station's new management, who have little understanding of what he does or how he does it. Ron sees the world differently from other people and while he loves his job, he would never wish its dark side-effects on anyone he cares about, particularly, the new love of his life.
Take a thrilling ride with Ron and discover what the world of a photojournalist is really like.
