First Draft of The Good Book

First Draft of "The Good Book"Woohoo! I’ve finished the First Draft of my novelette, “The Good Book.” Many thanks to the Loudoun County Writers Group for helping me get through this difficult, emotionally charged story.

As a writer, sometimes you just have to go where the story takes you. In this case, the story took me deep into the realms of spirituality and magic realism, sometimes referred to as slipstream. As a science fiction and fantasy writer, this isn’t the usual neighborhood where I tend to ply my trade, but based on the reactions from my readers and critiquers, I believe I’ve crafted a compelling story.

Now, onto the second draft….


Malcolm Jameson is planning to throw himself off a bridge when a passing bicyclist stops and hands him a magic book. Unsurprisingly, the book has a considerably different plan for Malcolm. And a bad attitude.
