Idealistic Dreams from a Dark Horse

Share Article

New book doubles as a memoir and reveals the author’s vision for the future.

I am an inventor and a writer, and this is my manifesto

Even as a child, it was obvious that author Sam Flakus had a very active imagination. The way he perceived things is in no way ordinary and his head was filled with dreams of how things could be made better for the future. Readers can follow his story as it unfolds in Dark Horse.

When he is eighteen, the author finds out that he has been diagnosed with ADHD as a child. That certainly explains his lack of attention span, which made keeping up in school a struggle. But now, he is in a better position to understand his situation. In Dark Horse, he shares his thoughts on important issues and his experiences. He tells his story as he remembers it, with the names unchanged and the events, unyielding. He reveals his vision of the future, to introduce a new way of how people might deal with some of the problems they face today in his fascinating book which doubles as a memoir.

“I am an inventor and a writer, and this is my manifesto,” declares Flakus.

Dark Horse will be featured at this year’s New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2010. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
