The Archbishop for Santa Fe, John Wester, had an interesting take on baseball. He observed when a baseball player takes a swing, he runs around the bases and arrives right where he started. But the whole game is changed.
Reading is like that. We can read a book sitting in our living rooms. But hopefully, we’ve learned something. Or we can look at life in a different way. Or we can understand someone or something better than we did before. And best of all – we were entertained while doing it.
Will Smith said,
“I want the world to be better because I was here.
I want my life, I want my work, my family,
I want it to mean something
And if you are not making someone else’s life better
Then you are wasting your time.”
A few years ago, I took a hard look at our world. There is a lot of good. But it can be so much more. And what could I do about it? I decided to write.
I’ve always enjoyed writing and I will never tire of reading! I gave up reading to a degree when I had children because I was afraid I would get lost in a book and ignore them.
But my children are now grown and I know there are people out there who love to read as much as I do. They want to be entertained. And why not entertain them with something they might think about after the book is finished?
I created a thrilling story of a tortured detective working on a murder case with twists and turns that involves a spirited woman, knives, blades, and devil worshippers while he and his partner perform a chess match with his narcissist boss.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
