Description

Gardening doesn't usually require a lot of risk taking, but real danger can be dug up when attempting to unearth the petrified roots of ones family tree. If you're not careful, you could be buried by your own questions. The secrets of deeds in times long past, by people never known, or barely known at best, had somehow helped shape Mason Worthy into the man he was today. What Mason finds on a simple road trip is that lives can be measured by a fraction of an inch, but what truly matters on the journey is what you find out about yourself.show more

About Mark Howen

Having survived numerous self-imposed geographic transplants, my roots reach far, yet- for the most part-are still intact. Yes, I am a multi-generational Coloradan, but would have to claim more a simple Westerner. My wife and I ended up raising our family in the state of Washington. Here we will most likely put in our remaining time on this wondrous blue ball called planet Earth. What I do for a living has never truly complimented that which I was attempting to do for a life. As a result, a battle of wills would culminate, and needs would usually claim victory over dreams. It is a common ailment found in the pursuit of all art. Yet, I have never stopped searching. This is my first endeavor in writing a complete novel. To say it is "art" will be up to the opinion of the reader. However, it can be said that the act of creation-in anything-is the essence of all art. What the end result happens to be is purely a personal experience. For me, it was an incredible journey into my mind and soul. I feel I have learned enough to move forward with confidence, in spite of the flaws. You might say that it's a history of where I was when I wrote this. I am simply a student of writing; a student of art; a student of life.show more
