After his alcoholic mother dies, sheltered teenager Leroy Smiley is left reeling… by how little he feels. His numbness comes to an abrupt end, however, when a blurry image of a forgotten family friend forms in his mind. Desperately seizing his unlikely chance to get the one thing he's always wanted, a normal life, Leroy ditches his new foster home to find the caring woman from his past.

With little more than a few memories, though, it'll take more than desperation to find her. He hops a train to Folsom City Prison to learn more from his father, and winds up on a journey that takes him further than he'd ever imagined, as he experiences the harsh indifference of the real world for the first time.

The Fiction Works Proudly Sponsors Haley Kummer Racing


Meet Haley Kummer, my great-granddaughter. Oh she's cute alright, but make no mistake, this kid is a fourteen-year-old hard-core racer (from a family of racers). She tangles with the guys on a regular "Go Fast or Go Home" basis and more than holds her own (think of her as a boy, but a lot cuter). Haley is ranked 17th in the country in her class by the World Karting Association (WKA), and she wants to take her racing game to the next level. Today (3/31/14) I started a 'Crowdfunding" campaign on the Internet, hoping to receive support from racing fans around the world to help Haley with her career. If you can help sponsor, that would be great; if you can't, please pass this information along to your friends. Thanks in advance! Haley's Story (video, too) - Ray Hoy, Publisher
