In writing letters to the women in his life, the author chronicles his growth from shy, abused child to happy, confident adult. As he does so, he provides a rare and intimate look at male-female relationships from a man's point of view. With an adult's hindsight, he relives his first kiss, first date, and first crush. He examines the reasons for missed opportunities and failed romances. He tenderly explores his feelings for those special women whom he never will forget. Love, romance, and friendship provide the focus for most of the letters, which range from sad and sobering to light and humorous. But the author also deals with murder, suicide, drugs, mental illness, and betrayal. Despite such serious subject matter, the book overall is a celebration of life and love, as well as one man's tribute to the women who have enriched his life. Robert Montgomery is a full-time freelance writer/photographer. His non-fiction articles, essays, and short stories have appeared in dozens of magazines, and he has won numerous national and regional awards for his work. As yet unpublished, his two "eco-thriller" novels--- Wolf Brother and Wolfchild--- are represented by Cambridge Literary Associates. The action-adventure stories include wolves as major characters, with some chapters written from their perspective. He intends to write two more in the same vein and place the four under the umbrella title of Seasons of the Wolf. Montgomery is a Senior Writer for BASS Publications, a subsidiary of ESPN, specializing in conservation and environmental topics.
