Without Wings: Gambling on a Soul by Thomas Joseph Beck

J.J. Dunleavy is a family man and owner of Mom’s Place Diner in Delray Beach, Florida. J.J. is a church going man as well as ‘Little League” baseball coach. Everything in his life is moving along smoothly. J.J. had his two best friends working along side of him running the Diner. Then his partner ran off with $100,000 of their money. J.J. began to gamble thinking he could “earn” the money back.

Instead, he became a degenerate gambler. And, his partner’s wife begins to look very appealing to J.J. He begins to think having an affair might bring some excitement in his life. You see J.J. is being tormented by the combative Angel, LUST. In one of his desperate moments, he prayed. He did not believe that praying worked. What he does not realize is that the Angel, SERENITY, heard his faint mumbles and has decided to help.

So, now Jonathan Joseph Dunleavy will learn the meaning of “be careful what you pray for.” Look out Delray Beach … Daniel Peter is on his way!

Interview-

WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO WRITE?

I have ideas and stories in my head that I think can entertain and inspire the world so I want to share what’s inside of me that will hopefully outlive me.

HOW OFTEN DO YOU WRITE?

I try to write every day.

DO ALL AUTHORS HAVE TO BE GRAMMAR NAZIS?

Not at all especially in today’s world. I have editors and editors are the real writers. I’m a storyteller.

WHEN DID IT DAWN ON YOU THAT YOU WANTED TO BE A WRITER?

One morning I was sitting there with the idea of “Without Wings” burning in my head so I started to write it down and I knew this what I was born to do.

DO YOU PROOF READ AND EDIT YOUR WORK ON YOUR OWN OR PAY SOMEONE TO DO IT FOR YOU?

I used to but a good friend of mine who is a writer pointed out the fact that I already what my book is supposed to look like so proofreading and editing are not for me because I’m blinded by the fact that I know what I want the book to say. I pay someone to tell me what the book really says.

WHAT IS A DREAM GOAL YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE BEFORE YOU DIE?

To make the world better than when I entered it.
