Street gangs were a menace to everyone. They didn’t care who got hurt by their actions. All they could think of was drugs, money and their whores. If it cost the lives of innocent children they could laugh it off. But, after today that would not be the case anymore. After today they would be the ones living in fear.
Don was an easy going man who loved his family. His wife Sally and his little daughters Elizabeth and Patricia were the loves of his life. They were as happy as any family could be until the Christmas they went back to Los Angeles to visit relatives for the holiday. The visit was wonderful until they left to go back home to Arizona. The notorious Southside Gang crashed into their SUV while fleeing the scene of a robbery and murder with the cops in hot pursuit. Don’s entire family was killed instantly. Don only survived due to the efforts of his cousin who was following them in his pickup. Over the space of the next year and a half Don prepared to mete out the punishment to the gang. They would have to die of course and not just die but in the most painful, gruesome manner he could inflict. He had learned many things about the human body during his recovery and could psychically cause pain that no one could ever imagine inflicting physically. They were going to pay and Don intended to enjoy every moment of the restitution.

About the Author
Johnny grew up in the foothills north of Los Angeles. He was a very active child, one of those who you never caught sitting still. He and his cousins, 25 at last count, would play outside making use of what they had lying about. They did not know they were poor and if anyone ever told them they were they would not have cared. They enjoyed each other’s company and never was the word bored used by any of them. As he grew he collected memories and experiences like other children collected baseball cards. Through his school years and on into his military service in the US Navy he often thought of his many experiences and like many others he thought of writing a book about them. John progressed through many phases during his life, the carefree childhood, rebellious adolescence, loving husband and father of 5, proud grandfather of 10, healer and finally author. His first book to be published is Taking Control which portrays his idea of how the world should be if we could take control of our lives and be answerable only to our conscience and morals. ‘Do unto others’ and ‘an eye for an eye’ are recurring themes in this first book. He is not an advocate of anarchy but neither is he in favor of big government. The idea that a community founded on good moral grounds will take care of its own was the concept for the book. The idea that he should sit down and write the books he has conceptualized was given to him by his oldest granddaughter, Kayla. She also enjoys writing and it was during a conversation with her about this subject that the seed of authorship began to grow in him. He wants everyone to enjoy his books and come away with a feeling of empowerment and confidence in themselves. He is fond of saying, “If you have a desire to do something that is off the beaten track, don’t be afraid. As long as it doesn’t hurt you or anyone else, go for it. You may never know what pleasure and joy you may find at the end of the path.”
