SOBRIETY FIRST
had visions of this novel back in 2000 and in the course of
time I have written parts periodically going on six years.  The goal to complete the first draft has become the strongest today (march 1st, 2006) as I get settled in my new Cliff Chamber2 apartment, recovering from open heart surgery back on December 15th, 2005.  A new inspiration to complete my work is now here for this writer to write, write, write.

     Part 3 and the ending to LOST& WON is based on a recovering alcoholic who fights to remain sober as members of the fellowship and friends die tragically from the disease of alcoholism and finding a new partner in life.  This story is not only happening in this book, but rather in reality around this whole wide world.  The main character is Paul Haegar, who experiences the destruction of friends by drink in his continued search to finding another love to replace his first wife.                                                   CH (Chapter)
