    The Preacher’s Son, Kevin L Backer’s first novel, stands out as a heartwarming coming of age story for America’s gay youth. The exemplary novel details the decisions all gay youth must make-do they come out to their parents, family and friends? And face the consequences of their decisions? Or do they continue to hide who they are and who they love?

    “This was a great book, written very well, and a subject which affects so many lives today. It was very refreshing to hear that other people endure what others do. I would love to see more books like that.”

    “I love this book and had a very hard time putting it down. I couldn’t wait until the next day to read more. I kept wondering what was going to happen next with Paul and Jeremy. This book was very emotional for me because I grew up in a Pentecostal Free Will Baptist church and had heard all my life that being gay was a sin. I could feel the emotion of the characters in the book based on the experiences I have had in my life…this book is well written and would make a great movie. I could picture the characters in my mind as I read the book. This book made me anxious, laugh, cry and was a healing experience for me. I hope Kevin Backer will pursue the movie idea and write other books. Thanks Kevin I will never forget this book.”

  • The Silent Armageddon

    The Silent Armageddon

    The events about to unfold could have taken place five years ago or could very well happen a week from now. The origin could come from any of many sources, with slight variations in the onset, but each leading to the same inevitable conclusion. These multiple sources could be the results of an economic collapse, pandemic, solar flare or as in this case an electrical magnetic pulse or E.M.P. The fundamental results would have been nearly identical. Banks would suddenly close, the government would shut down, and government checks (all subsidies) would come to an abrupt end. The inner cities would be the first to explode into violence throughout the streets and erupting into total and complete social chaos evolving into anarchy.

    Stores would be vandalized and food deliveries to these urban hell holes would stop immediately. This would then lead to escalating violence. Most people would seek shelter in their homes waiting for the local or federal government to intervene, while others would try to fend for their families. Then there would be those that would see this as an opportunity riot, steal, rape and destroy. Hence in the blink of an eye an unsuspecting nation is swept into “The Silent Armageddon.”.”

    Being a licensed Open Water Diver and avid snorkeler it was from these multiple experiences that assisted me in drawing various ideas for the construction of this novel, along with a lot of research. The majority of the book is based on fact with only a few cases of falling back on literary licensing. This is a wake-up call to the people that haven’t had the time or opportunity to keep up on events taking place in the world today.

    Walking Through The Pain

    Walking through the Pain is a bio-fiction based on a true story of a baby given up for adoption when only two weeks old by parents in Barbados who thought their son had a better chance of surviving in a middleclass family. The little fellow has a number of very unpleasant experiences in his growing up. Experiences like the death of his adopted father before he is nine, seeing his adopted mother made bankrupt within eighteen months of losing his adopted dad, seeing her spiral into the depths of poverty before he himself is rescued and taken back to his village, the place of his birth. During this time too brutal corporal punishment received at school sees him develop a phobia for school so severe that he resorts to some rather unusual measures to avoid school. Even at secondary level, he is denied opportunities to achieve his best by some of the very teachers who should support him. But, with the unfailing support of a loving and thoughtful mother as well as a loving and perceptive brother, he overcomes all odds to realize his full potential at school. This lays the foundation for his rise to the top of his chosen profession and his entry into the world of academia.

Bobbie’s mother Lesley Frobisher didn’t seem to be worried at all, but then Lesley never worried about anything, not even herself. Sam Macklin could testify to that, or he could have, until a week ago. So, could Mario Williams, Macklin’s right hand at the Marrakesch Casino. As for Bucky Wallace, the drifter Matt Ross gave a lift into town to, no one could figure out what his connection was to any of it. Not Dells, the cop. Not Ed Gurney, Assistant D. A. and Phyllis’s boyfriend. Not even Pete Hudson, the part-time private eye Phyllis hired to find Bobbie. The only one who seemed to know anything was a local Reno private snoop name Pinky, and he wasn’t talking. Well, not at first, anyway.
