“My first experience in the publishing process was a very pleasant one. Getting my first novel into book form turned out to be much easier than I ever imagined. I realize I am very much an inexperienced author but thanks to my publishing crew I have confidence I am indeed on the right path to becoming a successful author.”

J. R. Pitts grew up around the mangrove islands of Southeast Tampa Bay. His family were commercial fisherman plying their trade around the hundreds of mangrove keys in the area known as Cockroach Bay. His early life was centered in the area that became his place of refuge, his secret spot of meditation and relaxation.

There are two men that are very different and very alike at the same time. They exist side by side in two great universes that are also very different and very alike. The universes are parallel and lives are also that way. What is going on in one is mirrored in another. Twenty two years ago an event occurred the night of their birth-a gate opened between the two universes. A baby boy who should have been born an Edenite was suddenly an Earthling. A baby boy who should have been an Earthling was suddenly an Edenite. The future belongs to whoever can find his true self-the future of two worlds may depend on the outcome.

– J.R. Pitts, author of Isaac Rooks Trailwalker
