Ten-Year Journey to CLIPPED WINGS


Graphic Created by Dale Thele

The original concept of what would eventually become the novel titled π˜Ύπ™‡π™„π™‹π™‹π™€π˜Ώ π™’π™„π™‰π™‚π™Ž began in 2011 with a rough draft entitled π™Šπ™π™π™€π˜Ώ π˜½π™” π˜Όπ™‰π™‚π™€π™. In the draft, Shane (the main character) was an angry and vengeful teenager. The story wasn’t what I’d originally anticipated. Below is an early video book trailer made in 2011.


The draft was shelved for several years while I battled with AIDS.


In 2016, I resurrected the rough draft, realizing that π™Šπ™π™π™€π˜Ώ π˜½π™” π˜Όπ™‰π™‚π™€π™ would be the ideal vehicle to introduce Shane as the protagonist of a six-book series. Off and on during the next few years, I scribbled out various possibilities for a book series. I had nothing concrete until 2019 when I finally completed the entire 6-book series outline. That same year, I re-titled the original rough draft first novel: π˜Ύπ™‡π™„π™‹π™‹π™€π˜Ώ π™’π™„π™‰π™‚π™Ž. Everything fell into place and the novel practically wrote itself. The novel was completed in December 2020. The first paperback was released on February 11, 2021, on Amazon. Three weeks later, the novel became an Amazon Best Seller.


The second novel of the Shane Davison Chronicle Series (π˜½π™‡π™π™π™π™€π˜Ώ π™‡π™„π™‰π™€π™Ž) is scheduled to launch in 2022.
