Lost Wings is now available on Amazon, both as hard copy and E-book. It took fifteen years of never giving up on this book to get to this day, and you know, yeah… I feel pretty proud at this moment. The book was always there in my desk drawer, and it always there in my […](image)

Wed, 13 Sep 2017 22:14:59 +0000

Hi there. I thought it would be cool to share the prologue to Lost Wings with you all (coming out September 22nd, 2017), to sort of “whet your appetite”. Lost Wings Prologue At the end of the darkness were the hands. The concept of hands touching her, grasping at her, hurting her, was new. Her […](image)

What is Lost Wings about, you ask?rklewis

Sun, 27 Aug 2017 21:24:51 +0000

It’s about this (from the back cover blurb): When Richard Eastman, a down-and-out veteran of the Gulf War, returns to his room in San Francisco’s Tenderloin district after another night of alcohol-fueled fighting, he finds a woman in a shimmering gown who has strange injuries on her shoulder blades. She is the angel Avesta, whose […](image)

Update.rklewis20160714_182019

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 17:29:44 +0000

Update, you say? Well, a pretty small one, I guess. However, I wanted to share the below photo of where I am with this current book. The theme of the book is not new, however, for me it’s incredibly cathartic: Death and dying, grief and grieving. And of course, since I write mysteries, there’s a […](image)
