J Franklin Payne
My story as the author is like the story of the protagonist Kyle Stone, whose story is derived from my life experiences. Those life experiences started upon losing my father to suicide at the young age of 9. After living with several families, the Army was calling as a possible good place to find a home for a few years. After intense training in combat and engineering, I earned a Commission as an Infantry Officer at 18, the youngest ever commissioned, served during the Vietnam war and could not wait to get back to civilian life.
Now at home building a business and starting a family, a future that was looking so great, what followed was many years of the strangest events leading up to betrayal, greed, corporate corruption, witchcraft, paranormal and more. Those years were the craziest in my life and totally unbelievable to anyone who knows of it.
