D. Eric Horner has written five other novels—Guilt, Slow Burn, I Promise: A Grandson’s Destiny, Disorder in the Court, and Murder at the Reservoir. He began his writing career in 2006 when he became disabled due to multiple sclerosis. He finds the mental strength to battle this disease through the creation of the characters and plots in his novels. With the use of talk-to-text software, he has been able to turn his ideas into finished works. He lives with his dear wife, Kathy, and cat, Goldie. Goldie, his faithful “critic,” listens nearby as he speaks to create his stories. The family lives outside the hustle of the capital city of Ohio, near the quaint village of Alexandria.
