Monroe Williams, a veteran and graphic designer, has completed his new book “The Desane Odyssey”: a gripping and potent tale of self-discovery, love, and the fragility of circumstances.

According to Williams, “(I was) born in Arcola, Texas, on April 14, 1949, and was the third child of twelve siblings. (I) entered the Marine Corps in 1968 and did a tour in Vietnam. (I) was interested in art since childhood and graduated from the Art Institute of Houston in 1979 as a graphic designer. (I) live in Rosenberg, Texas, with (my) wife, Sherry.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Monroe Williams’s emotional tale explores Jeremiah's quest to discover his roots in order to fully understand the subjects he depicts in his art.

However, Jeremiah is not alone because others are on an illicit and perilous journey, which leads them unerringly to him and threatens to destroy all that he has achieved. He also finds a woman who becomes his salvation and he comes dangerously close to losing her.

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