Roger Brown, a strong-willed and responsible man who grew up in Seattle, Washington, has completed his new book “The Skill of the Killdeer”: an empathic narrative of a boy’s complicated moments of abuse and troubles, and how these made him the man he becomes years later.

Author Brown reveals the harsh reality of life and the desire to escape and be free of confusion and pain: “I walked back toward home a little ways, to the middle of the clearing, with my head down, scanning the hard earth, thinking that I had dropped my hot-lunch money as I was coming toward the pond. I was glad there wasn’t any ice over that dark water; I would have tried to be brave by walking out to the center of it, relying on instinct, yet my instincts were not accurate, and I would have just stood there, wondering. More often than not, my decision to be brave was the whisper of deception. Deception was a woman, and she lived inside of me. She would often wake me in the middle of the night and instruct me to follow her into the black, imperceivable center of her world. From time to time I would feel myself rise out of bed and wander to some other place in the house. My flimsy body seeming to be lacking substance, all caution to the midnight wind, I was caught between two nonconcentric realms. That one and the other, brighter, more painful one.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Roger Brown’s tragic tale delves into the sensitive topics of rape and psychological illnesses and how these affect individuals suffering from such traumatic occurrences.

Readers who wish to experience this poignant work can purchase “The Skill of the Killdeer” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
