Would you give someone your own beating heart so they may live?
That is the question Doctor Paul Vieyra will have to ask himself as his world comes crashing down around him, and the ghost of those who died on his operating table haunt his mind.
R.L. King was born in Grants Pass, Oregon, in 1978. King grew up in a poor mountain town. He and his family lived in an old school bus and shared an outhouse. They did not have a television until Reagan was re-elected.
King is the author of Two Bad Men (2005), Parallel You (2006), and Dead Heart (2007). These novels were created at the request of his friend who needed something good to read. King also published two short stories in 2010, for publishing credentials: The Tell-Tale Soul and The Water-Grave Redemption.
R.L. King currently resides in Oklahoma City, and works in the precious metals industry. He continues to write as late as he can most nights.
My main interest is books. Reading, writing, collecting, discussing our favorites, and everything else that goes along with books. I know all writers talk about reading a lot of books, but I am surprised no one has given me an intervention. I read like if I do it enough, that someday I will get an award and a special day for it. If I do get a day after me, please don't let it be Monday.
I also collect. I have all kinds of books. I have memory cards full of E-books, hardbacks and softcover, and my personal favorites, the rare first edition. There is nothing like the smell of an old book. When I get one on my shelf, it calls to me if I don't read it soon enough. It catches my eye when I walk by, and it tells me that it wants to tell its story just one more time. Who can resist?
Although I have not been able to go in years, I love surfing. It is the only good reason to get up early in the morning. If you have never seen the sunrise from inside the blue water of a perfect wave, then you might miss out on your chance to see something truly awesome.
