I am currently at work on a novel, 'Deadly Dominoes', a memoirish take on my family's rather checkered history (only as far back as my parents), with two suicides and various and sundry dysfunctions sprinkled amongst the compelling story of a Scots-Irish family who's patriarch brings them (mostly) crashing down, beginning with his one year stay in a Nazi POW camp in WWII in 1943, and culminating in his suicide. The Prologue/Foreword is below. First 3 chapters to follow. (approx. 10,000 words)
