I am posting some excerpts from my latest novel,The Awakening of Russell Henderson, here for the next while. Here is another. Stay tuned for next week.
It was February, winters last attempt to depress everyone with dark, dreary, cold days. By now, any snow now remaining was dirty and frozen into piles of ugly slag. The next few weeks I started to get out of the apartment, walking down by the Lake when the weather permitted, hanging at my favorite coffee shop, starting to read some books I had always wanted to.
