Here is a snippet of his story The Condemned Man:
I was thinking about my grandfather today. He is 94 years old, and has lived in Detroit, Michigan for more than 85 years. My grandfather is one of the most fascinating people that I have ever known. Anyone who has ever spent any time with him has received some life and history lesson of some sort. You see, he has an incredible memory, And even though his physical abilities have slowed a bit, his mind remains razor sharp. He can easily discuss the politics and platforms of Barrack Obama, as he can with those of Harry S. Truman. He is a walking encyclopedia.
While reflecting on him and his greatness, I found myself contemplating a court scene, in the Federal Building in Detroit, during a time of his youth. You know, about 80 years ago. Dig my scene…
We have more of the story…but I guess you all will just have to wait for the book…:)
