Like many new authors, I said for years I wanted to write a book. Life, careers, and other necessary evils seemed to always derail that goal. Then, last year, on a road trip out west, I found the spark that ignited The Temptation of Destiny.
My journey began in Hazleton, Pennsylvania. After high school, I joined the U.S. Coast Guard, spending the better part of eight years busting holes in the sky on C-130s. After the military, my career path meandered through the financial services industry, auto industry, bar industry, and construction management.
I am excited to start my next adventure with a move out west, and begin work on my second book. New Mexico, The Land of Enchantment, will provide the rich Native American mythology to take readers on another roller coaster ride (as The Temptation of Destiny does).
In my downtime, I enjoy hiking and other outdoor adventures with my wife. Hunting, fishing, and doing everything possible to stay from falling into the “status quo,” fuels me.
When it’s time to wind down this adventure we call life, I hope to be sitting in a cabin high in the alpine forests of the Rockies, spending the days with my wife, children, family, and friends, reminiscing about the blessings this life afforded us all.
Since the beginning, evil has walked the earth in many forms, perhaps none more terrifying than what hides behind the mask of humanity.
The trial that captured the world’s attention has ended, leaving in its wake a path of humiliation and broken hearts. Jake and Dakota emerge scarred, but free from the shackles of both his past and her guarded secret, anxious to turn the page on a new chapter in their lives. Yet some wounds don’t heal.
Behind the closed doors of the privileged, depravity and dark desires prevail. In a world mired in insatiable appetites, and fueled by sins older than mankind, an ancient evil gains strength.
Caught in the crosshairs between two worlds, can Jake and Dakota connect what was to what is? Can they bridge the physical and the supernatural? The Destiny of mankind may well hang in the balance.
