Dear Book Browser: Thanks for stopping to look at this book. With
millions of books in the market place, what chance does mine have
to survive? That is what I, the author, am concerned about. I have
just given birth, so to speak, to a new baby, the novel that has
absorbed my interest and been my work for several years. I know
that I have tremendous competition, not only with contemporary
authors but also with authors of the classics, going back hundreds
of years. Yet, I feel that I need to add my experiences to these
mountains of fiction. I feel as though I have done so by
introducing the fictitious Rick Stevens to my readers. Rick Stevens
is the main protagonist, not the hero, in my novels. Like many
Midwestern American men born in the first half of the 20th century,
he and they have much in common. As you have guessed, I visualize
myself as the fictitious Rick Sevens; we are similar but not
identical in all aspects. Most of my life, I have kept a diary or
journal. Also, I have written and received many letters which I
have arranged, in chronological order, in three-ring notebooks.
Besides my memories, these records have provided me with raw
material and realistic detail for my novels. In this novel, I have
described Rick's courtships, three marriages, his two sons and
family life, including his failures and his successes. Since my
retirement, after 35 years from my work as a high school science
teacher (physics, earth science, chemistry, biology), I have kept
myself busy with my writing. This is my eighth book. I hope you
find it interesting and worth reading. If you have read two of my
previous novels-I WAS HERE: The Young Manhood and Education of Rick
Stevens and To Become a Rich American-you will realize this novel-A
Farewell to Three Wives-becomes the third volume in the Trilogy.
