In honor of the tenth anniversary of the publication of The Frame, one of the authors signature works, he has taken the opportunity to fashion a second edition of the novelrevised, reimagined, and rereleased as Michaels Place, the books original working title. It is a coming-of-age tale where innocence meets corruption, safety confronts peril, and friendship copes with betrayal. It is the story of two adolescents from different worlds who meet and bond, only to have their connection severed by the appearance of jealousy, deceit, and perfidy. It is only while reconnecting during adulthood that they have an opportunity to regain the trust and affection that had once characterized their relationship. The work has also been crafted into a stirring screenplay by Missouri native Jerry Rapp, intriguingly entitled Not by Blood.
