Kid Without Fear
It is easy to list the memorable episodes in my life. To make them
sound interesting to others was the hard part.
I am not much different from you, I look like you, I can feel, I can
breathe, bleed, joke, cry, like you. I laugh, just like you.
I speak Hungarian, perhaps a few words in German and Russian.
So am I four persons? Maybe, if I count English, my adopted language, maybe I am four personalities in one.
Do I have any special knowledge? Maybe I have. Is my knowledge really special? Is it enough to amaze others? I think it is.
Do I brag about my knowledge? Maybe I do. But then I should, I
know a lot of things. I have drowned three times and been struck by lightning three times. People say cats have nine lives and I think I’ve had nine lives too.
After reading my story you will think of me as a free-spirited
person who likes to joke around and who never bullies anyone.
I hope I made your life a little richer and let you in on a few things
you didn’t know before, or on a few things you shouldn’t attempt to do.
Tusks of Terror
I grew up reading horror fiction. Horror is
in my blood. Horror is about fear and tragedy
and mainly tragedy.
My protagonist – Toti survives a World War
but through his questionable choices almost
succumbs to his own deeds.
The story unfolds innocently until local
juveniles, ATV-s, and marijuana enter the mix.
Then tension, panic, dread and fear takes over.
The author does not spell out the insidious
horror but the air is filled with it. Then blood
and guts spill. From this point on the reader
cannot put the book down.
What will Toti do next? Will Morrison lose
his job? How will Morrison survive the
immense pressures? Will his beautiful
girlfriend Sylvia support him? Will the farmers
find out about the wild boars?
Who else is going to die, Andy, Chilton’s daughter?
Pray for her and find out
Yes, my book has two protagonists. I couldn’t decide who I liked
better. Actually my antagonist should be a protagonist. Crazy, eh?
If my readers can see trouble coming they can decide who they like
best to be the protagonist.
My readers have to see the convergence between the characters
and feel the perils ahead. As the story goes on and disasters happen,
tensions build in the reader’s mind.
The stakes become high. There are awkward challenges, dilemmas
as the ‘weapons’ are drawn. But the author can’t let anyone die, at least not until the end... and even then...
Who will be the villain? Who will be the hero? Who will be the
victim? Or is there a victim?
