Power Surge

Pronounced dead eighteen years of age after a fatal auto accident, fifteen minutes later in Sequoia Hospital, my eyes popped open. The yearlong recovery was worse than dying.

My current age of 72, I'm still excited about life. In an active body, having traveled the world, I write novels about fabulous experiences.

Getting Wired

Alexander Crown was a character who came to me while I lived in Dubrovnik, Croatia. What I thought was an accident meeting while I stood on the marina docks, had turned out to be a purposeful encounter. He brushed up against me on a warm afternoon while was looking across the sea. The Adriatic was a deep blue pool of liquid. The sun was a blazing inferno. The warm breeze carried the spicy honey scent of baklava.

Crown was my height, and a little more muscular in his loose fitting black suit with a pearl white opened collar shirt. His shoes were plain black Alani loafers. A five-day growth of beard, piercing golden eyes, and hair thick shoulder length like Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man. He actually resembled the drawing with large eyes and furious expression.

I want you to write a story about Croatia, how the Croats search for democracy led Serbia to bloodshed and rape and devastation of thousands of innocent people, Croatians and otherwise.

His global accent threw me into a tailspin. The educated, literate man was indeed a master of something. Was he a genius, artist, prodigy or marvel, perhaps a military veteran, a person with special knowledge and skills in the art of living? I hoped so.

How he knew I was a writer was beyond reproach. Over the next two years I followed Alexander Crown around the world, listened to his detailed depiction of events during the war between Croatia and Serbia, and his participation, his vision of democracy for Croatia, and the course his life had taken after Croatian independence.

Crown was and still is a man of conviction, a genius, a marvel with knowledge and skills equally to Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man, the measure of all things.

The measurements of man is more than just in his natural physical distribution, it's also in his humanitarian ethics, his peaceful morality, his passion and devotion to be the best altruistic human he can be. Alexander Crown is all that.

Dubrovnik, Alexander Crown, book 1 takes you behind-the-scenes of devastating war, undying friendship, and the love for life. Get a copy of my exciting adventure, you'll become a better person for it.
