Can the past heal the future?
Ninety-one-year-old Marvin Hermesch is determined to find out.
After sneaking out of the retirement home on a hot and humid Sunday afternoon, Marvin embarks upon a journey. His memory is deteriorating fast, and he’s having difficulty recalling the face of his deceased wife, Ruthie.
As his short-term memory slips, it awakens memories buried deep from his younger days and vivid nightmares of his youth, including the horrors of World War II.
Armed with an empty journal, some water, and his trusty old truck, Marvin heads to his childhood home in the backwoods of Grant County, Arkansas for one last journey; one final battle.
Marvin fights to regain control of his mind and body by confronting the tragedies of the past in hopes of healing the future.

When I released Tainted
Cure, I was asked that question in various ways many times. Several people bombarded
me with negative comments, online and in person (not about the quality of
writing) but about my decision to delve into the sci-fi/post-apocalyptic genre
since my main fan base consists of mystery/thriller/suspense readers. Apparently, there is some obscure rule urging authors to
“stick” to a particular genre if they want to succeed by creating their “brand.”
Many people, including other authors, urged me to change my mind and steer
clear of genre-hopping by continuing to pen what my fans crave. I never have been good with rules or running away from
a challenge. J Though I have been a longtime fan of the zombie genre
and of course, The Walking Dead, I
never considered writing a book about the subject. Seriously, hasn’t it all
been done? What in the world could I add to the genre? Ever since The Magic Island by W.B. Seabrook in
1929 hit the bookshelves,the reasoning behind our collec…
I love a challenge. It keeps the mind engaged and neurons firing on all cylinders. That is why I decided to design my own cover and interior for my latest novel, Empty Shell. After undergoing a thorough edit, the pull to try my own creative skills was just too much for me to ignore.
After weeks of learning how to use Photoshop, thanks to numerous online tutorials, I scratched enough of the surface of the program to create the ebook cover: (Photo credits: Nicolas Raymond http://www.freestock.ca Courtney Simonds
Then, I went through the process of learning how to convert the manuscript to the appropriate electronic files (epub & mobi) for use on various ebook readers. That little exercise made a few gray hairs sprout! At times, I became frustrated and walked away from the computer, wondering if I'd lost touch with my sanity. But, I was unwilling to give in and trudged on until I finally figured it out. I jumped around the living room like a little g…
