1:13pm-Backside strikes seemingly every rock on Farmington riverbed.
1:26pm-Tube capsized in rapids by rock I can only assume is namesake of Boulder,Colorado.
3:17pm-Drifting through rainbow trout-infested waters, low on supplies. Hoping to reach land by nightfall. Was that a thunderclap?
4:08pm-No land in sight. All now seems lost, coming to the understanding I may never have Doritos again.
God. The Devil. The Bet. The Fate of Mankind in the Balance. Check out my new theological, paranormal crime thriller, Ghost of a Chance.
What if a late 20th Century Jack the Ripper tearing apart a small Connecticut town was the result of a pancake shop bet between God and the devil? Imagine if Satan’s impact on the world in the new millennium hinged entirely on one police officer’s skill in hunting down a ruthless killer…hiding in plain sight. Detective Danny Seabrook is an unwitting pawn in a divine chess match with immeasurable consequences for all mankind. Set primarily in 1995, this action-packed suspense thriller features clever dialogue, humor and romance-with an ending you will never forget.
