He wakes tangled amidst branches and parachute lines. Injured and upside down in a tree. With no memory of who he is or why he is there. If that weren’t bad enough, he finds himself in the most dangerous place in the Western Hemisphere.

But that was the first time…

This time when he wakes, it’s the same scenario—with a new twist, a beautiful and exotic woman tells him his name. Can he trust her?

After all, Chris Shaw can’t remember anything. And the mysterious Mari Dias may be his only weapon against the dangerous drug lords who will stop at nothing to destroy him. But Mari has secrets of her own…

As Chris and Mari search for sanctuary out of the jungle, filters of his past return in slow increments. Suddenly, Chris’ enemies are closer than he ever realized. Can he battle the storm that threatens them all?

The King of Horror

When we learned Stephen King was going on tour it was an opportunity we didn’t want to miss. I mean…Stephen King!Screen Shot 2016-06-14 at 4.40.15 PM

Ryman line            It took almost eight hours to drive to Nashville, Tennessee, where our tickets were. His End of Watch tour was being held at the Ryman Auditorium and the line to get in wrapped around the building. We stood in the 100-degree weather waiting with the rest of the audience for entrance into the sold out show. Approximately 2400 people filled the auditorium.

He didn’t disappoint. For quite some time Mr. King entertained us with engaging stories from his youth and adult life, as well as details of his writing career. He talked about what it was like growing up in a small community, how his experiences influenced him, his failures, and his successes.
