About the Author:
Taught the amazing beauty and majesty of the English language by Bob Dylan, Robertson Davies, Charles Dickens and Leonard Cohen in a way school could never inspire, I have a lifelong desire to use words to paint pictures in the tales I long to tell.
Coming of age in the turbulent 60’s, life has been a journey of successes and failures, but, as Dylan said, “There is no success like failure”. Each defeat was actually a fork in the road leading to the world of the written word. It seems like the road less traveled, but it has taken me to where I needed to be.
I have traveled the globe, dined with politicians, rock stars and beggars. I have rubbed shoulders with priests and murderers, surgeons and drug dealers, each one giving me a part of themselves that will live again in the pages of my books.
I have been blessed to be married for over thirty five years, given three sons and now three grandchildren.
What you read today is just a small part of what I have to give you.
Diamonds and Cole
Cole Sage, a once brilliant journalist, has just about reached rock bottom. Haunted by the longing for the woman he lost, Cole is jarred to a crossroads when an elderly woman shoots and kills a hostage negotiator in front of him.
A while later, Cole is stunned to receive a one line cry for help from his one great love. He is face to face with his past and an uncertain future as he tries to find her estranged daughter.
The path to keeping his word is blocked at every turn by the husband who has abandoned her, his shady real estate deals, violent con men, street thugs and the lure of a fortune in diamonds that bring them all together.
The anger, sorrow, and crippling guilt of twenty years fires Cole’s drive to keep a promise, that in the end, will heal and return the soul to the great journalist.
Beaten, bloody but determined, Cole Sage conquers greed and hatred with a strength that only love and a will as hard as diamond can achieve.
