His name is Gary A. Campbell and we both have a love for our Scottish heritage, though by blood I am a Donald, and we are both writers.
Gary lives in Detroit, Michigan and has a very interesting sounding book available for purchase. The title of the book is Half Past Ted. The title alone had me curious and I just had to go check it out. This is the description that is posted about it…
Ted’s good at taking lives, but he’s not very good at living his own. He “owns” a castle in Scotland, drinks too much, and seems to hate the human race. Ted’s The Grim Reaper, and he’s tired of his job. One day he tells the boss – God - that he’s going on strike, daring Him to do something about it. “Let ‘em pile up,” Ted tells God.
But God has other plans for Ted, and so does the devil. The devil wagers God that he can get Ted to commit murder, and thus win his eternal soul. Lethe has no idea where she’s from, who she is, or how she landed on planet Earth. But she gets assigned to keep tabs on Ted, and she learns early on why Ted is all alone in this world.
Lethe, a French nanny named Helene, and a little goth girl, Alyssa, all combine to make Ted’s life a lot more interesting - even if they almost drive him crazy in the process. Ted’s life is about to become much more complicated, whether he likes it or not.
17th century Scotland holds the key to Ted’s past, and present-day Detroit his potential future. Ted may be in over his head, but he plows through life like only Death can.
Now I don’t know about all of you but I love stories along these lines. They are usually very fun to read and loaded with laughs. From this little description I am thinking that this one will be the same way and can’t wait for my copy to get here so I can find out for myself.
If you are interested in learning more about Gary A. Campbell you can visit his website HERE. If you would like to obtain your own copy of his story then you can get a paperback copy by visiting CREATESPACE or if you have a Kindle and prefer to carry many books in one slim form you can go to AMAZON.
Gary, as I told you the other night it was a pleasure to be able to chat with you. I wish you many blessing with your book and for all the ones to come in the future.
