UNDER BLACK LIGHT by Joseph Roy Sheppherd, Andrew Singer

This story explores the difficult and interconnected issues of physical child abuse, psychological recovery, false arrest, prison abuse, self-education, prayer, forgiveness, unconditional love, and personal victory over adversity. Under Black Light is a work of blended history, autobiographical and biographical fact, together with historical fiction and social fiction. Therefore, the characters introduced here play biographical roles and begin their stories portraying real lives. They end up, however, in the realm of fiction, with alternative endings to the lives they actually led. With the exception of Carol Merrill, Cherilyn Sarkisian, Olivia de Havilland, Alexander Dubcek, Mick Jagger, Mercedes Matter, and Mark Tobey, the author is unaware of any similarities in names of the other characters with actual living personalities. If similarities do exist, it is accidental and inconsequential to the plot.

About the Author

Joseph Roy Sheppherd (1949-) was born into a family of California cattle ranchers and fruit farmers and from an early age has been interested in the diversity of cultures and religions in the world. He studied at the University of California, and the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford in England. As a cultural and linguistic anthropologist this interest allowed him to travel to remote jungles and deserts and reside among various indigenous peoples in Central and South America, Central Asia and West Africa. For a while he carried out underwater archaeological surveys and served as the curator of the National Ethnographic and Archeological Museum of Equatorial Guinea. More recently he has served is a museum anthropologist and project coordinator of the River Eagle Canoe Project, which endeavors to reintroduce traditional canoe-building technologies to the Ichishkiin, Kiksht, and Numu speaking peoples of the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs, Oregon.
At the beginning of this long journey, Joseph chanced upon and embraced the Bah�� Faith, which has proven to be the focus of his life for the past fifty-something years. He is author of several books (most of which are available as eBooks) and continues to write and speak about his encounters and discoveries. He and his beloved wife Janet now live in Trnava, Slovakia, where Joseph divides his time among writing and a variety of development projects.
