elcome to the official webpage of me, Curtis W. Berry. Here, you will find information about me, what I'm working on, what I'm reading, a few of my recommendations and anything else that comes to mind that I'd like to share.

 


"High in the Imorg Hills live a sect of monks devoted to the teachings of Gharan-Dis, God of Wisdom and Balance. They prepare themselves for adulthood before striking out beyond the walls of their secluded monastery to explore the mysterious and dangerous world of Irith.

 

Abandoned there as an infant and raised by the pious monks, headstrong Torin has watched the years drag by, impatiently waiting for his time to commune with his god and become a Walker of the Light so he can begin his exciting new life.

 

But as his Trial finally approaches, Torin realizes that he wants something even more than what Gharan-Dis and Irith have to offer. And the path he chooses to get it will send him on a dangerous journey that may very well destroy his faith and change him forever."

Been a long time since posts. Went back to school to get a 2nd degree, which I'm working on at the moment. I've gotten the itch again to write and am 20k into the next book in the Walker Series called "Rise of the Dragons." I'd gotten about 45k into it about eight months ago, but I didn't like the way it was going. I'll try to keep things posted here more often.

My thoughts go out to the victims of the Boston tragedy and the event that took place in Texas. Looks like one of the bombers in Boston is dead and the other is on the run. I've listened to so much news that I'm going into overload. The media is desperate to find any angle they can on the two men who committed the crime, which is their job.

 

Whenever something like this happens, people spend an enormous amount of time wondering why the attacker(s) did what they did. I understand that the need to know these answers is great for those who need closure. I sincerely hope that understanding doesn't breed a desire to reform someone who has done such a dastardly deed. People like that need to pay, pure and simple. And I don't mean languishing in a prison for the rest of their lives with my tax dollars feeding, clothing, and providing them with cable tv.

 

The event in Boston is not a reason to overreact and call for more security that will infringe upon the rights of citizen. People need to understand that there is only so much that can be done in this dangerous world without turning us into a police state where our every movement is watched, and our rights gone. If you can't understand that the world is treacherous and that there's a risk in going out into it, then stay home where it's safe.

 

A word about my book. I pulled it from sales outlets such as Amazon to do some much-needed editing. It will be back up soon.
