Have you written a book? Tell us about it.

Amazon has a forum for folks to shamelessly promote themselves and their writing. Since I truly believe that imitation is the truest form of flattery, let’s try this and see how it works.

I’ve written several books, but I’d like to tell you about what I consider my best work – Looking Down on the Moon.
Looking has been called a “love story,” but it’s more than that. Yes there are elements of love in the book – nothing gratuitous, I assure you. There are many different kinds of love in addition to romantic love. They’re all included in this story: romantic, brotherly love, love of fellowman, love of God.
I say Looking Down on the Moon is a multi-generational family saga spanning the time period from pre-World War II to the present. The story takes place in Houston, Northern New Mexico and in the country of Mexico. The main character Dolores is a person born to a family of wealth and privilege, but grows up in a home without love. She also learns about prejudice at a very early age – when she is too young to understand why the color of her skin makes her different. Life’s lessons can be hard on young sensitive children.
One internet reviewer says this book will make you laugh, make you cry, could break your heart and it could even make you a little mad… (I’m not sure about that one.)
Looking Down is available at Amazon.com for $27.00 (Retail Price). However, you can get an autographed copy from me for $14.95 plus $2.50 shipping.
