Scruples and Sexuality are Topics Today

We met Harold Syms, an unscrupulous banker/real estate developer, in Tuey’s Course. He valued a dollar, used other people’s money for profit and manipulated finances for his personal benefit. His furry mane and pointed snout gave him the look of a sly fox and the consequences for his behavior at the end of the novel are dire.

A teenage girl by the name of Shae is one of the main characters in Pabby’s Score. She is the product of a broken home and is raised at Footprints of Hope foster care center.  She is a special needs child who is mildly autistic but who has a savant-like memory, especially when it comes to geography. Her sidekick is Pabby, the title character of the story, who also exhibits some of the same remarkable recollection abilities.

Dennis K. Sneed is an attorney who specializes in civil matters. He is a man tho meditates to yoga and who is non-conforming both in thought and appearance. His role in Lifetime Loser is to file a lawsuit on behalf of the heirs of a swindled estate. When the main character, J Dub, realizes that he also has been cheated financially, Sneed's involvement in the storyline deepens.

Scottie P. Lampe is a tall, good-looking fellow with long, curly blonde locks. He operated a used car lot for most of his professional life but sold the business when he turned fifty so that he could enter retirement and pursue his passion for golf. He carries a handicap that is plus two, meaning that he often shoots below par at Prairie Winds. Scottie P is also the live-in lover of the Catholic priest, Father Alphonso Blair.  So, there's an interesting twist!
