J.R. Knox, a married father of two, retired US Air Force veteran, and avid Marvel Comics fan, has published his latest book “Spikes”: a heart-wrenching tale of impressionable youth and the permanent consequences of personal choices.

Knox writes, “Darren is a young warehouse worker with a level-head, good heart, and an intense competitor’s spirit. Struggling with the death of his father figure and his own indecisiveness, he searches for new purpose. He finds himself in a precarious position, having not experienced grief in his lifetime. The prospects of a colorful competition loom as Darren decides whether to take the highest risk of his life or forge a more conventional path. As the stakes rise, he faces demanding choices that breed permanent and costly effects on the remaining people he cares for. While piloting this grieving state, he will need to peruse untold truths and sully misdirection while finding his own social confidence. Darren’s trials make it clear that even the best intentions have unintentional consequences. How do you balance grief and life without going through it?”

Published by Page Publishing, J.R. Knox’s engrossing book is a gripping and potent tale that keeps the pages turning right up to the stunning conclusion.

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