Author John Veteran aims to contribute to the understanding of pedophilia and the struggles people go through in trying to cope with it. He reveals the story of the “The Friendly Stranger” (published by Xlibris).

This book chronicles one man’s struggle to cope with pedophilia and the accompanying shame. At the age of 16, Dalton Henson suddenly finds himself sexually attracted to prepubescent boys. This attraction gradually intensifies until it nearly completely replaces the attraction he previously felt toward girls and women. Despite his sexual attraction, he conceives that sexually molesting a boy would be morally wrong, and he never does so or considers doing so.

It follows Dalton Henson through college, a year of teaching physical education and coaching athletics at a junior high school, a summer as a camp counselor, two years in the U.S. Army — including a year in Vietnam — and the year after he is discharged from the Army, as he lives in a low-grade motel room in Tampa, writing a novel and interacting with a variety of motel staff and guests.

“The Friendly Stranger” sheds light on the nature of pedophilia in a sympathetic manner as oppose to hostility, giving readers a better understanding of this illness.
