Since June of this year, I have been caring full-time for my father who is terminally ill. My focus has been primarily on him, and on my family while I make sure I take care of myself also.
Recently, my father has started to decline and we are in the final stages of his life. Because of the intensity and emotional levels of this series, I have been unable to focus at the depth that I have needed to focus, and I had to make the very hard decision to cancel the release of MIssion: Repair for this November.
I know my readers expect a certain level in writing, and I know I am not capable of doing that as I lose the man who has been my rock, and taught me to be the person I am today.
I sincerely apologize for this delay and hope that you understand. I will advise here, on my website, and also in my newsletter when I get back to working on this series.
The second book in the Rise Again Warrior Series is now available!
Dana Donahue might be Shane Logan’s cousin, but she’s nothing like him. Her thoughts focus on what money and people can do for her. She never approved of Shane joining the military and knows little about the world he has lived in for most of his life. All that will change when she has to ask him for a job after her father cuts her off.
Derek Stall lives on the streets by choice, not circumstance. Memories of what he did under order sometimes haunt him, other times give him the strength to move through one more day until he can finish the mission he started.
A chance meeting between Dana and Derek will lead to an unlikely friendship that might just save his life, but the drastic differences between them could be the dividing wedge that keeps them apart.
When Derek feels he has to leave Rise Again Warrior to complete his mission, he begins to realize that he could be leaving behind more than just a few friends. Could he be leaving behind the possibility of a healthy future before he finally accepts his past?
Staff Sergeant Shane Logan is lucky to have come from a privileged family, and after losing both of his legs in the war, he now has the best prosthetics that money can buy. While he attempts to move forward with life, he struggles with the past and the way people react to him and his disability.
Doctor Lauren Falcone works tirelessly to help veterans deal with the trauma and pain of their deployments. Her unique approach at therapy keeps her busy. It also works with her own insecurities as she helps these men and women recover mentally.
When Shane meets Lauren at a fundraiser for his father?s organization, he wonders if his deceased brother has sent him an angel. Someone who can look past his flaws, and see the man he is inside.
Shane and Lauren are pulled together by their hope to make life easier for veterans, both physically and emotionally. Their goal is to build Shane?s dream organization, Rise Again Warrior, that will assist veterans to integrate better into society, and have the opportunity to receive state of the art technology and therapy.
Now, if they can only have faith in themselves, learn to deal with their own demons and believe in each other, they might find a way to bring this dream to fruition.
