"The Only Living Man With a Hole in His Head"

Dear Readers,

  I am excited to announce and keep you up-to-date with information and news about the December release of my novel, "The Only Living Man With A Hole in His Head." Excerpts will be posted as well.

Based on a true story, “The Only Living Man With A Hole in His Head” tells the tale of railroad foreman Phineas Gage, whom in 1848, had a three-foot long, inch-and-a-half in diameter, thirteen pound iron rod blast though his skull, taking out part of his brain, and the doctor who treated him and valiantly fought the medical establishment to prove the authenticity and merit of the case as Phineas Gage entered a journey into changed personality, the P.T. Barnum freak show and driving stage coaches in South America. It ended with medical science forever changed.
