The Making of a Con
Paperback: 152 pages (6x9)
This is not the story of an ordinary criminal but rather the story of a man caught up in a world within which he could not function; boyhood naïveté did not prepare him for a society that infl icted stark reality. Th is trueto-life story is told in his own words, with minor editorial adjustments. The first twenty chapters are told before he found out the facts surrounding his father’s death. I am sure the reader will be as intrigued as I was by the circumstances that propelled this man inexorably onto his destructive path, a man without goals and who hated prisons as much as he depended upon them.
Once in a Lifetime comes a Man
Paperback: 172 pages (6x9)
Fate was a blessing when a dream brought Lyle into my life once more. He was fortysix years old and had never married. It had been eighteen years since we'd seen each other. I was almost fortytwo with three adult children and two ready to graduate high school. It is only once in a lifetime that a person is lucky enough to have true love. I had that with Lyle, and it is only with writing this book and reading his letters that I fully realize the depth of his being and his love for me. I heard this on a news program on marriage: “It is rewarding to know someone has been a witness to your life .” I am that witness to Lyle's life. “Our song will endure through eternity.” I hope that in reading this, you will appreciate the soft heart, humor, intelligence, and love that was Lyle. The love he had for his family, animals, and creation. He was a man of integrity and fine character and a good listener. The mark of a man is how a man lives his life and my husband was that man-a good man who had a great mother and father.
