About the author (2004)

The author was born in Georgia and attended university in Ohio. However, restless and bored, he soon dropped out, opting for a real world education. His work took him to the Northern, Midwestern, and Southern portions of the United States. He presently lives in Florida. nbsp; He has experienced first hand the WatchTower Bible and Tract Society?s (Jehovah?s Witnesses) methodology of member indoctrination and control. This realization unfolded for him when circumstances dictated he attempt to understand their design for living. nbsp; His study revealed various methods used by the Jehovah?s Witness hierarchy to ?bring sheep into the fold?. However, the tactic of instilling emotional separatism (shunning, disassociation, etc.) in a convert to keep at distance family members critical of the Witnesses? doctrine is one of the most heinous. This maneuver successfully allows instruction of a convert segregated from family influence. Thus the seeds are planted . . . and fertilized. nbsp; The author?s hope is that this novel, in its own way, will act as an informative causeway over the far-reaching waters of the authoritatively minded WatchTower Bible and Tract Society.nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;
