The late John Lefler enjoyed writing motion picture screenplays, plays and books. His book “The Black Spot” (published by Xlibris in April of 2014) which is set for a new marketing campaign, tells a story about why second chances are sometimes elusive and why building a home is not as easy as just building a house.

Bruce Dawson and his wife Vivien’s plan was to find a new place to begin their lives with. In 1924, upon their arrival in New York coming from Europe, they thought that this could be the opportunity of their second chance.

When Vivien got pregnant, it was happy news at first, but when problems start to arise, the couple’s relationship begins to crumble, and the home that they try to build for many years is now being threatened. Will Bruce and Vivien survive their predicament?

The Black Spot” invites readers to witness a harrowing tale about a couple’s desire to have a second chance in life and how fate becomes cruel to them.
