Palawan: A Novel by
And Thus It Was: The View of the Poet is the poetic endeavor of the author over a number of years. Its four sections are an arbitrary attempt to organize a wide ranging collection of themes and moods. Each piece is a complete expression of the author's thoughts giving the reader something to ponder. The book is designed for contented reading by the fire on a winter's eve or on the breast of the hill on a bright sunny day. The spirit is positive and at times thought provoking. The reader will find very little hidden or obscure meanings in the text. It is straightforward using syntax and rhythmn to carry the meaning of the wording.

By Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA) - See all my reviews
Ruthless Islamic terrorists, hapless missionary hostages, a millionaire's daughter, seasoned mercenaries, and lethal Borneo pirates are all key elements in "Palawan", a riveting action/adventure novel by C. D. Williams. An exceptionally engaging read from beginning to end, "Palawan" is a deftly written story of friendship, courage, life, death, love, and a struggle for survival that begins in the Philippine jungle, continues to unfold in the lights and glitter of Las Vegas, and ultimately reaches its unpredictable resolution in the high desert country of Arizona. Very strongly recommended for community library collections and personal reading lists for those who appreciate compelling action/adventure fiction, "Palawan" is the debut novel of C. D. Williams and will have the reader looking eagerly toward his next title.
