Slipping into Darkness, Blinded by the Light
published by Cast the First Stone Press
From shooting heroin in the slums of Staten Island to boating and building beach houses in the Bahamas,
Slipping into Darkness, Blinded by the Light is a story of trials and triumphs, despair and faith, pride and shame.
Once you embark upon this spiritual sojourn, as you laugh and you cry, one thing’s for certain – you won’t want it to end.
