Harry's Secret is a spicy autobiographical novel with two interconnected love triangles: The first involves Harry, a bitter 86-year-old prisoner of war hero; his lovely daughter, Melissa, 38, a graphic artist and psychic; and Mark, a 64-year-old Coloring Book Artist, novelist, and unabashed storyteller who inadvertently comes between them. The second triangle includes sexy Kate, 77, Mark's best friend; Kate's handsome 55-year-old lover, Jorge; and the bitter and jealous Harry. The story begins in an idyllic Mexican seaside village, moves to New Mexico, crosses several American states to California, and is peppered along the way with travel snippets from South America, Europe, and Africa. Ronald L. Donaghe - Professional Evaluation Editor: "This is some of the best characterization I've seen in a work. The descriptions are concrete, with great, vivid, relevant detail. From start to finish this is a satisfying read involving human nature, human weakness, the urge for happiness and fulfillment, and all sorts of human interaction with one another and with the environment. There is a very clever plot of just what it is that makes Harry a bitter old man." The sequel, Diary of a True Christian (year?), explores the need for a coalition in America between Environmentalists and Christians. Carl, introduced in Harry's Secret, authors the Diary. Ron Stock lives with his love, Melody, in the mountains of New Mexico, but his creative heart resides in the juxtaposition of colors on canvas and the arrangement of words on paper. He's an award winning poet and painter, and a Sanctioned Director with the American Contract Bridge League.
