When he awakens, he sees that he is being guarded by some strange men, then notices that the sky is different than normal.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
He first wrote short stories for his personal amusement as
well as close family and friends. In late 2016 he started constructing a novel,
*Silver Eyes on South Holston." It wasn't until February 2018 that Jimmy
began to take his writing seriously, publishing his first three
"official" short stories in anthologies lead by Millhaven Press.
Then in spring of 2019 he broke from working and
writing, having two liver transplants between May 31, 2019 and June 11, 2019.
The second transplant was an amazing success and Jimmy was back home and
working by August. And so nine stories came into being and partnered to create
"The Holston Collection" which was published by Tree District Books
and released February 28th, 2020.
Still doing carpentry and drywall through the days, he's writing in his spare time. Now in the final edit for the novel "Silver Eyes on South Holston" with hopefully an early fall 2020 release. There's also a completed, yet unpublished Novella on the desk as well as three more works in progress. And yes, many ideas flooding his mind all the time. I hope you enjoy my writing, there's lots more to come.
