“A TRIBUTE to the endurance of the human spirit, Black Raspberries demonstrates the truth of the Nietzche quote, “What doesn’t destroy me can only make me stronger.”

––Arline Chase, author of Killraven, Ghost Dancer, and the Spirit series: Spirit of Earth, Spirit of Fire, Spirit of Wind.

Plagued by religious friction, violent fights and a belief, “the grass is always greener”, my peripatetic parents dragged us five children in search of the next great farm deal. From upstate New York to the Mississippi Delta, to the hills of Ohio and West Virginia their dreams led us forward to disillusion and defeat. I was the middle child, unwanted from birth and over-looked while growing up, Though all five of us are deeply scarred, sometimes being the least loved can be your salvation.
