This is the story of “Adam: My Literary Alter Ego.” If you have read any of my secular books, you have seen repeated reference to this mystery character. Adam is a principle, more that an individual person. I am Adam. You will see various aspects of my life in the story. Adam is a confluence of a few great minds, writers and editors in their own right, whom I have been blessed to call upon to make some of my short reads a reality.
The story of Adam, with all its simple intrigue, is one that touches on the lives of so many people around the world. It’s a story that requires the reader to think, feel, laugh, cry, reevaluate, dream, succeed after failure, etc. It speaks to the heart of family matters, our need to find purpose in life, and make a lasting impact on the world around us. We have each been given a story to tell. And in each of our lives we have various and sundry vehicles by which to tell those stories.
This Adam’s story carries you through the life of a young man who was born in the sunny, beautiful Caribbean and migrated to the U.S. to find a better life. He found trials, challenges, love, fulfillment, joy, pain, family, and the determination to make this world a better place in the process. He found the need to simplify his life as he provided for his new family. Like you, this Adam had to come of age in order to find “his” story while he contributed to the lives of so many others, to help them develop their stories.
Truth is; you too are Adam. Whether you are a man or woman, his story, in so many ways, is your story. Welcome into the world of Adam: My Literary Alter Ego. Don’t be surprised if you learn more about yourself, than you do about him.
