From the author of Brushes With Life - A Checkered Journey comes a stunning sequel that will once again capture the readers’ hearts as Boyd Russell unveils another chapter of Shaun MacKenzie’s life and the interesting events that leads to the story of Brushes With Life-The Journey Continues.

The readers have followed his journey from his childhood in Burma to his adulthood in America, entrepreneur and Martial Arts Master, Shaun McKenzie is a force to be reckoned with, approaching life with charisma, calculated maneuvers, and a consistent philosophy. Now, he is happily married to the woman he loves, Mickey, and they are already expecting a baby from their union. Andrea, his ex wife, is also leading a blissful life with John, whom he now considers his closest friend. Life couldn’t get any better. Or so they thought.

He is not afraid to revisit the past to reconcile it with the present, and he still draws on his discipline, curiosity, confidence, and self-awareness in every situation he encounters. One event, however, will change his life forever. He is tormented by the thought of revenge, since justice cannot be extracted by the judicial system. He will have to take the matters in his own hands. Before he can plunge into that overpowering desire, he must first see to it that the people closest to his heart will be left in good hands-and that would include his son, Malcolm. What will become of Shaun MacKenzie as he confronts the man who ruined his life?

Brushes With Life- The Journey Continues proves to be as good as its predecessor, even better, as it brings the readers into a roller coaster ride of twists and turns at every turn of the page. Richly-plotted and with a string of remarkable characters that keep things interesting, this book might just be a new beginning instead of an ending.
