Author Biography

There is nothing the least bit interesting about me and in truth sometimes I believe that I live vicariously through characters of my own creation in which case I should probably seek professional help straightaway. I could bore you with dry facts recited by rote but that would be contra-indicative of my personality type which demands that I at least make this somewhat interesting regardless of the enormity of the task involved. Easier said than done I can assure you.

"Sins of the Father" tells the story of two people who are from different worlds. There is Bowen, a child who has had misfortune of the worst kind and there is Aaron who has lived a saintly life but is miserable over his own questionable belief of the Higher Power. Both of them eventually cross each other's paths and each has played an important role in both of their lives. However, what holds them connected is a darkness so poisonous that it has also the potential to destroy humankind. The situation that they have gotten themselves into needed a deeper understanding which did not come for a while. In this journey that Bowen and Aaron undertook, they found themselves in a race against time and evil. It is only a matter of realization with which they would find the most powerful tool that could be used to end this as soon as possible.

I absolutely love this book. The details of the story are written very well. I can actually see the story unfold as I read each word. I admit though that there were a few moments where I had difficulties in understanding the tale but as I read further, I would just pick up an idea or two and everything would be clear right away. Then, the matter about the characters. I like the fact that they are realistic and a great representation of human beings and one of their greatest weaknesses. In general, I love how dark and mysterious the story is and in the end, light is valued greatly. I am very much satisfied about how the story ends. The book really deserves that kind of ending. Along with that, I have also picked some life lessons and realizations. For a dark-themed book, it is actually a light that can guide those who are at war with their human flaws.
