From the creative and highly imaginative author John A. Richter, comes an intriguing and highly engaging anthology of stories— A Trilogy—that encapsulates deep human emotions. This book promotes the importance of knowing one’s self, the quintessence of friendship when difficult situations burgeon, and the true meaning of love and the many complexities that come in between.

“Western Walker” is a story of the coming of age of a young man, a story of hope, a story that is meant to amuse, to move, and at best, to enlighten. It’s about a young man who represents those who seek to find themselves in life. He graduates from college yet declares himself a conscientious objector against the Vietnam War and serves his time. He experiences the loss of his father and other loved ones. He also experiences good and wonderful times in his travels. While he can cry for all the pain that he or the rain can never cure, he still finds a way to remain hopeful. He can still find something to dream about while he takes out the trash.

A friendship of three different souls—a dapper Englishman, a young Midwesterner, and even a younger Easterner who represent a classic California mix—is set to entertain readers in “Diamond in the Night.” Each has a story to tell in his quest for spiritual wholeness—to belittle one while enhancing another only coaxes irony to dictate surprises with truth stranger than fiction.

In the modern day world of shattered dreams, two people meet and struggle to defy the odds. Can they live out what they never had or is their struggle just another chapter in Too-soon-old-too-late-smart? Readers can find what happens next as “Someone Like You” unfolds into fire and passion.

Action-packed, riveting and equally romantic, the stories in A Trilogy are about endings that bring new beginnings... tragedies that lead to unexpected happiness... and, most of all, the magic of everlasting love.
