What if that homeless man you passed every day on the streets had in fact been a successful business and family man? Or worse, what if he was your father – forgotten and abandoned over thirty years ago? What if fate had simply dealt him a bad card, a hand where he lost everything - his wife, his children, his career, his friends - his life? And what if by some strange coincidence, a chance meeting with a very unusual visitor, he got a second chance at life? 71 year-old John Ross, aka, The Buffalo Kid, the oldest street destitute in his city, finds himself suddenly vaulted from homelessness to a thrill ride which will challenge the shadow of the man he has become; a task which pushes the edges of the envelope, testing his core values more than he ever thought possible? A story that reminds us that everyone deserves a second chance.


Excerpt

Somewhere deep beneath that veneer of degradation was a very smart and alive mind. It was my impression, in just the short time I had known this man, that this was not his real life. That there was another person buried in the outfit that he called the Buffalo Kid; someone to be rediscovered, someone who could help me to understand these people and this culture.
I was breaking all protocol by letting him into the ship. No doubt I would be reprimanded for doing so, but I was following my sense on it. And frankly, I was intrigued by him.

The Buffalo Kid
What a story! I couldn’t put it down.
It was everything I love in a story. Compelling characters that you could identify with. Significant social commentary. And a message of ultimate hope and faith in humanity.
It had all the hall marks of great science fiction. Yet I wouldn’t call it science fiction. Sure there was an alien, a spaceship and a ray-gun — but they really were just a great story telling device. They could have easily been an angel, a burning bush and a bolt of lightening or even just a wealth philanthropist, a cadillac and baseball bat.
The story was about real people in extraordinary circumstances.
I have just discovered my next favorite author.
When does the next one come out?

The Buffalo Kid
I SO enjoyed your book. I JUST finished last night. I stayed up until almost midnight to finished....It is definatly one of those " so hard to put down and turn out the lights at night " kind. Then I see you message this morning.. =) I will be eagerly awaiting the next in the series....Does the "infusion" start soon? lol
BRAVO !!! And I would love a signed copy if possible.

The Buffalo Kid
I'm looking forward to reading your book Baffalo Kid as soon as I can tear it away from my dad's hands. hahaha. I have read your book intrusion and I could not put it down. Usually it takes me a long time to read a book but I finished this in a couple of nights. I was captivated by the story and the way you write keeps you interested, not a dull moment. Spellbinding and I can't wait until the next installment in the life of Keeno. Well written and great sense of imagination and adventure. Keep those books coming, it's great to have a writer who can make a story so easy to read and keep you captivated at the same time.
