The most extraordinary Christmas present I have ever received!
36 years ago, at the age of 15, I wrote a novel, The Lions Den.
As I note in an article I just wrote about it for a publication,”it was a US-Soviet cold war-style thriller that involved a global crisis; there were nuclear explosions, fascinating spies, geopolitical maneuvering, and yes, even a sex scene. Not a bad effort for a 15-year-old kid.”
Christmas morning, my family gave me a fully formatted manuscript ready to go to print – typed in from the original typewritten manuscript by my wife Christa, and an absolutely fabulous cover design by my son Willie.
They’re going to add a few short stories from that time when I first started writing (!), and then we’ll take it to print sometime in 2012 and make it available for sale.
Have a look at the cover — and in particular, read the back cover copy for more on this remarkable project.
