Richard Wayne Hatley, a Vietnam Veteran who has his MBA and has worked as a CPA for many years, has completed his new book “The Promise”: a gripping story that could occur in reality, while specific characters in the novel are fictional, some scenes are set in places that once existed and some places in the novel still exist.

According to Hatley, “John Grisham was the first person to show (me) how you could study so hard to achieve success in one profession and then succeed in another profession. He also showed (me) that you could be a successful writer using the experiences that you had encountered in your previous profession and build fictional characters around this experience and places where you worked and played.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Richard Wayne Hatley’s enthralling tale is his first novel and second published book.
