Jerome’s new book, Half Life, ($22.99, paperback, 9781498435819; $9.99, e-book, 9781498435826) readers will enjoy an exciting fictional drama capturing Christian themes such as faith and belief through the eyes of many characters.

Relatable characters are brought to life with attention to detail and many suspenseful changes. The author penned characters’ innermost thoughts and feelings with metaphors and imagery, expressing chaos, contemplation, and growth through their eyes, while inputting reflections of historical American events. It is a well-written and thought-provoking piece that readers won’t soon forget.

“An understanding of the nuclear threat of the 1980's and its impact on ordinary people of seemingly different types,” states the author. “I hope readers will come to understand that direction must come from the Spirit as He struggles to bring people to faith through circumstance and elicit dedication to brotherhood and real peace-making.”
