DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
Michael Caro is at a crossroads when Lucifer invades his mind, and a demon possesses his soul. Michael’s strict Catholic upbringing couldn’t prepare him for the twists his life’s about to take.
Caro journeys from his small, mid-nineties, New England town, through military training, to his first assignment in Germany. Wanting only to fit in with his peers, Michael has a moment of weakness and unwittingly invites a demon into his heart. The demon’s uncontrollable urges, and Satan’s voice echoing through Caro’s head, guide him and twist his perception of reality.
While Michael faces an internal battle between good and evil, external obstacles pull him in opposing directions. While training in Aberdeen, Caro discovers a world filled with sin. Demons disguise themselves as humans. Drill Sergeants use their position to coerce female soldiers into bed. Alcohol and sex become Michael’s crutch as his hidden powers slowly reveal themselves.
A battle between good and evil rages within him and each choice Michael makes determines his eternal fate. In a world dominated by sin, will Michael find the path to salvation, or continue along the road Lucifer set him on?
Do you trust God’s mercy enough to live a life of sin?
I’m a fiction author from Massachusetts. I received a Humanities award in English and my associate's in Liberal Arts from Springfield Technical Community College.
Lucifer’s Dragon is my first novel. My writing explores the dark side of human nature and the human condition of being good vs. evil. In my book, I examine the question, “Why are we evil?”
As an army veteran, devoted husband and father of five, I have plenty of life experiences that I wish to share with the world. Although I mainly write fiction, my worlds and characters sprout from my numerous real-life experiences.
In my free time, I enjoy backyard barbecues and bonfires with my wife, children and two pups.
