This photo shows the exact same setting that inspired me to write the Summer Ray Series. I was called to the top by unseen forces and it changed the course of my life forever. This view has not changed, in all the years I have been coming to this beloved battlefield. It is home, more so than the town of Gettysburg.
Although history cannot be changed, although it is permanently etched on the pages of the ancient scrolls of Father Time, there are those who have thought it necessary to remove it from our American lands. I want to share with you an excerpt from Volume 6 of the Summer Ray Series that is only 1/4 of the way written.
“Summer was cut off by her own gasp when she saw the Colonel Marsh’s eyes were also crying tears of blood. As blood began to seep through the snow all around her, she didn’t know whether to stand still to escape it or to run for higher ground. The General McDaniels came and scooped her up and placed her on the stone wall.
As he held onto her, he said, “It is as if they are cut into pieces and have died all over again.”
Summer inquired, “Why? What happened?”
The General replied, “It is in your time period their flag was removed. I cannot tell you what to do or how to do it. But I can say this, each time the battle flag is removed as a symbol or racism or hate, the tears fall. I am afraid, the war has begun again in our time. Look around you. Their sacred blood is being spilled, their bodies are once again shredded. The Cause in which they gave their “last full measure of devotion” is being desecrated. Men who led them in battle are being dug up from their peaceful slumber; monuments to brave Generals are being vandalized and some of their Confederate brothers’ gravestones are also being destroyed.”
The Bible states: “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for the rights of all who are destitute. Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.” Proverbs 31:8-9. It is time to get off the sidelines, to start marching toward the preservation of our history. I am talking about myself. I have been told that we don’t want to make the “Liberals mad!” Well, it is for certain I am going to make some people mad, so it might as well be them! I wasn’t going to finish this 6th book, but I have since changed my mind. It will be written. It will be either on the big screen or in a TV series alongside the other volumes. Our franchise is growing and it will continue to grow, until justice has been done on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves. In this case, our beloved historical soldiers, their families (mine included), and the true nature of the South.
2018 is going to be the start of something great for us.We will meet the right people, be in the right place at the right time, be where we need to be and have done all we need to have accomplished. We are working on a new professional trailer to present to investors, producers and directors. It will cost around $10,000 to do so.

May God Bless you greatly in this coming new year.
