The author of this site is currently working on a revision to a formerly published novel, “Separated From The Flock.” The new version, tentatively titled “There is No Ground: A Journey Toward Acceptance of Uncertainty,” is an honest and deeply personal memoir which traces the author’s journey from a life filled with confusion, fear and vulnerability to a life lived with clarity, confidence and inner strength. The author holds strongly to the belief that acceptance of the uncertainty that we face in our lives is the key to happiness and contentment. This does not mean that life will always be easy, however it is possible to deal with struggles and difficult times when we accept where we are at any given moment and move forward without fear of the unknown. Along the way, the author became addicted to alcohol, drugs, relationships and religious groups as a way to satisfy an unnatural desire to remove any doubt about his future, a desire which was rooted in his ever-changing and unpredictable childhood. The reader will learn a lot about the Jehovah’s Witnesses, a group the author once associated with that has continued to impact him in various ways throughout his life. This book is not about disputing the teaching of the Jehovah’s Witnesses or any other religion; it is about empowerment, independence and freedom of mind, ideals which do run contrary to the teachings of many faiths.
