Editorial Reviews

Review

I loved the character Ruby. She was my favorite. The Home Place is a real story that develops as the reader reads on, instead of one of manufactured plots like most books today. One really identifies with the characters. I loved it. --Cathy Desko<br /><br />The book was a refreshing tale of life in the not-too-distant past where people used to take care of their own problems. The characters were vivid and real and I cried many times. --Hannah Jackson<br /><br />The villian was disgusting. I know there are people like him, but not too many, thank goodness. I felt so sorry for the mother, having to put up with such a husband. Never a kind word. Just work, work, work. But life was hard back in those days, so I guess with all those kids, he had to be hard. --Mary May Burress

From the Inside Flap

Back flap: Russ studied the new boy for a minute. Tommy was a little bigger than him, little older too, but not by much. "You one of them boys that come to live with Mickey, huh" "Yeah, he's my daddy now." "Can't be your daddy." "Why can't he? "Tommy said, jutting forward. "He said he was. From now on, anyways." "Can't just say you're womebody's daddy," Russ said . . . --This text refers to the perfect edition.

Greetings fellow readers. Thank you for having the interest to arrive at this page. You are a big part of the reason I write. I've been a reader since a very early age--big boy books that is--and I thank my dad and the community of Griffin, Georgia, for fostering higher learning. I've learned much more by reading than any other media.

At a high school reunion a few years ago, a classmate named Robert Rhom told me he remembered the short stories I used to write and read to the class in the sixth grade. Frankly, I had forgotten all about that, but when he mentioned the theme that all the stories centered around, it came back to me.

I didn't begin my serious writing career until ~1990 while I worked for the postal service. What provoked me was remembering my wonderful experience in the US Air Force while stationed in Aviano AFB, Italy. My unit was tasked with surveillance of the USSR and China for possible ICBM attack of the US. Can't be more descriptive because it is possibly still classified. The terrorist group The Red Brigade or Brigatta Rosse was very active in Italy during this period. To round out the story, which couldn't be told without at least a little romance, I included three Italian women who myself and two friends dated for a considerable period. I mentally formulated a plot before I began writing and wrote the entire book on 13 legal pads over a two-year period. This book became titled "Treviso: The First Terrorists." While I can't say much of the written word is true, the inspiration behind many of the scenes came from the truth. I will leave you, the reader, to discern which ones.
