Fate has its way of letting seemingly simple things irrevocably alter the course of people’s lives. This is what Larry Bulger, the hero in Peter Robinson’s new novel, “My Story in the Philippines in First Person”, discovers.

At 30 years old, Larry is enjoying the rewards that his life and career in the engineering industry brought him. When he signs a contract to work overseas—in the Philippines— he has no idea that the decision will propel him on his first true adventure and inextricably change his life.

From the bustling urban maze work of Manila (the country’s capital) to the mesmerizing Chocolate Hills of Bohol to the anxiety-ridden streets of Basilan, Larry’s voyage will be riddled with excitement, new discoveries, intriguing personalities and, unexpectedly, danger. As Larry becomes immersed in the unique culture and life, he also becomes enmeshed in perilous circumstances he never thought were possible. Soon, Larry will realize some enlightening truths about himself.

Peopled by richly-drawn characters, “My Story in the Philippines in First Person” unfolds to an adventure of a lifetime and a window into an enchantingly exotic world.

This book will be featured at the New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. on November 7-10, 2012. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
