Read an excerpt:

With terror in his voice, he said, “I’m not going to walk again, am I?”

“We don’t really know yet, like I said…”

Michael angrily cut her off “Answer the god-damn question. I’m not going to walk again am I?

“I don’t know Michael.” Tears began to will up in his eyes, and he looked at her, begging for an answer.

After she wiped the tear from her eyes she said “The odds are not in your favor.”

  1. Thank you for the opportunity to meet with you and your readers. I hope your readers are inspired by this true story. “Five Years to Live” is actually three stories rolled into one; it is a self-help book and a true to life family drama wrapped in a romance novel.

    The main message is: bad things happen to good people; but it is the ones that keep moving forward that get ahead. Even the art work on the cover suggests that those who keep moving onward will also move upward. We could wallow in self-pity and remain chained to our own proverbial wheelchairs or we could find and follow some positive role models. When you are going through hell, don’t stop and pick out a summer home.

    It is also a study into family dynamics; where love and courage can conquer fear and grief. It has a very, “He ain’t heavy, he’s my brother” feeling to the story.

    It is a story about the one who not only made his way through the wilderness but also grew stronger and wiser because of the journey.
