About the author:
After meeting Frank Herbert, author of the acclaimed Dune Series, I decided the life of writing was for me. That was about 30 years ago, I've been writing ever since. Heir of Nostalgia is my first published novel, and thanks to the encouragement of my loving wife Janet, is the first in a series chronicling the trials and tribulations of young man in search of his family, his country as well as his place in the world. I am pleased to present it here, for your reading pleasure. I truly believe in the gift and wonder of reading, I hope you do as well.
Here's to the land of wonder, an air of Nostalgia, and childhood memories. May we never grow too old to dream...

3rd Edition-Revised | Age Level: 14 and up | Grade Level: 9 and up
I need to tell you a secret, the world never started out this way. It became this way through a mistake I made, through my pride. I created the nightmare we all have to live through. Because of me and the decisions I made, the world has been marked for suffering. I accidentally tore the veil between life and death. I caused the great shift, the new awakening, to occur. Because of me, the world will never be the same."
Theo's world is one of privilege, of always having enough, of having everything go his way... until the moment he meets Phillip.
Phillip is thirteen. Phillip is also homeless, hungry, and heartbroken. He's been living on the streets of New York city ever since losing his family. Since that terrible time, the only thing that keeps him going are thoughts of vengeance. He's been looking for the man he feels is responsible for his father's disappearance, the very same man he feels destroyed his family- a man with 'silver singing' spurs that can walk between worlds. Will a 'Fallen Angel' named Maggie, a girl who claims she can talk to the angels themselves, be able to help Phillip? Or will a 'murder of ravens' masquerading as a teenage outlaws, defeat them? Perhaps there are even stronger forces than these at work, darker forces, forces bent on destroying everything in Phillips life, including the world around him?
No one ever said growing up would be easy- but then again, no one ever said it would be this hard either.
An Excerpt from Heir of Nostalgia: "You know what you are," responded Phillip, slowly advancing. "And so do I, rauen." If he was right, he knew exactly what Blair was, a fabrication, a lie in the form of a man. A doppelgänger. "Someone made you and put you here to act out his wishes." "I don't need to spell it out, not to the likes of you." Seeing Blair pawing at the weapon pinned in his shoulder, "So how does it feel," Phillip continued, "to be stuck, to know that no matter what you do, what you say, you ain't going anywhere until we reckon this thing between us?"
A new talent, states E. Finlayson of Staffordshire, UK. This book can be considered equally as a young adult book or an adult book. The plot is out of the usual and the writer builds both tension and atmosphere skillfully. Like other reviewers I could hardly put it down until it was finished, and I hope very much for a Book 2.
AMAZING! Says Ron You feel like your right there beside the characters throughout their whole journey. I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone ready for an adventure. There were times while reading this book that my heart would be beating faster. Can't wait for the next book in the series! HIGHLY recommend this book!
