"Incredibly beautiful and heartbreaking." -- Independent Review

From the Author

The Criers Club isn't my usual genre. It isn't horror or thriller or suspense, but it's a powerful story that I felt had to be written.

In the back of our minds, we all know that at some point our lives will end. We take comfort in that fact by fooling ourselves into thinking our end will come on some far-off date, after we've lived long, full lives. We pretend that we'll die in our sleep of old age without ever having to think about our death and what it means or how it affects the ones we love.

But for the majority of us, that isn't the case. We're faced with too many outside variables, too many diseases and accidents and other varying factors. So what then? What happens when we're forced to face our mortality much sooner than we planned?

That's what this story is about. A young man learns he has inoperable brain cancer. Now, with only months to live, he has to face the reality of his situation. He's leaving behind two young boys and a wife. They'll still have all the debt with only half the income. Plus, they'll be mourning his death. It's overwhelming, and he doesn't know how to handle it. So he joins a support group for terminally ill people, and it's there he learns the greatest lessons of his life.

Though this story strays from my usual genre, I'm glad to have written it, and I'm immensely proud of the way it turned out. I hope everyone who reads it gets something out of it.
