Note from the Author

As the author of THE SECOND SON I thank all of you for your kind words. It has now been 32 years since the book was released and thanks to you the story of Joseph Turner continues to endure. Many of you have requested an Ebook version of the book. I am happy to tell you that it is now available at Kindle, iBooks, and Nook. There has been much speculation over the years as to why the movie has not been made. The reason is quite simple, Hollywood has not been able to get a two hour screenplay that encompasses the scope of the piece while preserving the life philosophy of Joseph Turner. MGM sold the screen rights in 1988. A fine producer currently owns the rights and hopefully he will get the movie made. My readers have often asked that I write another novel. I avoided doing so because I thought I had said all I could possibly say in THE SECOND SON. However, over the past few years I have given in to the temptation and indeed have recently finished another novel. The title is THE MAN WHO RODE THE TIGER and it is also available as an Ebook at the above sites. I hope you enjoy it. If you do, tell your friends because word of mouth is the only advertising that is planned at this time. Once again let me thank you for your kind words and continued support. If you respond to this posting on the Facebook page I will do my best to respond to you in kind.

I remain sincerely and gratefully yours,
