“This book should be a movie.”
These were the words of my husband after reading Buddy for David. Steve had never read a novel in his life until this one. I felt flattered that he genuinely liked the story that came out of my heart, and, finally, after 19 years, found its way to print.
So what did Steve read if not exciting, macho fiction? It won’t surprise you. Instructional books about technical matters. As a result of his hard-won educational success, Steve became a stationary engineer and a refrigeration engineer, licensed to operate power plants or any other enterprises requiring his expertise.
I asked Steve what he liked most about Buddy for David, when he read it, besides that it should be a movie. His answer was this:
It was easy to read and fast paced, a story about a young boy, kidnapped, that found comfort in a dog. Even though the dog was aloof, it was the boy’s hope and an unseen threat to his captors.
As I wrote this story, I had a movie in mind for it, each chapter becoming another scene. I cut out unnecessary chatter always with the intent of providing action-packed and exciting episodes, one after another. When Steve said it should be a movie, I laughed and happily agreed.
Walk with this family, mom, dad, sister, and grandmother, as they struggle with the disappearance of young David. Engage in the terror of a kidnapped child and cheer at the unexpected appearance of a huge, white dog. Sympathize with law enforcement officers as they strive to find and rescue David.
Buddy for David is available in paperback and e-book form online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
