“I survived because the fire inside me burned brighter than the fire around me.” The Day it Rained Forever is a fiction, drama novel that, while written beautifully, may also make you feel uncomfortable, as it tackles the violence and unpleasantness of gang rape. Alia Cannes, a psychologist and writer, who lives a normal, simple, working class life, finds herself in a terrifying situation one evening, when she agrees to accompany a man at a bar to his hotel room. There, she is confronted with more than she anticipated and her night turns into a living nightmare, but that’s where the violence ends. The Day it Rained Forever is the compassionate, loving guidance of Erik, who reaches into the darkness to the sufferer Alia, offering hope and helping her in her silent search for a life free from the memory of her past and the violence she endured. The aim of the book is to help survivors find the courage to speak out. The author remained sensitive to the subject so no use of vulgar language has been used.

This is a love story based on events that occurred in my life more than fifty years ago. Some of the names have been changed, and some events may have been diminished or embellished while recalling things that happened when writing the story. The story is a based on recollections of actual experiences I had. It is a story filled with discovery, joy, and the innocence of teenage years back in the fiftys. It also shows how those years became the building blocks of a lifetime. The motivation for writing this came from an extraordinary thing that happened to me in the Spring of 2006 that stirred my memory and caused me to recall with clarity what I had so long ago buried in my subconscious mind. I met a person who became a good friend, but more importantly she reawakened everything I had discovered in that one magical summer back in 1954. Looking back as an adult fifty years later made me realize that there is symmetry in life, but many people never take the time to see it. This all started for me when we returned from our Winter Condo in Boca Raton, Florida in April of 2006. As per my usual morning routine, I continued to awaken early and go over to Starbucks to sit and have my morning cup of Decaf Americano. Id sit there and read the Daily News, or the New York Times, and chat with some fascinating people I had met whod become friends in the several years since I retired. One particular April morning I came in and they had a new person in charge of the morning shift working there. From the moment I saw her I could not stop looking at her. There was something instantly so familiar about her, but I wasnt able to see exactly what it was initially. When I made the connection with what it was it hit me like a ton of bricks. After we were introduced we began chatting briefly, but the more we made small talk, the less I actually heard what she was saying as memories of my past flooded back. All of a sudden I was fifteen years old again. I knew then I had to sit down and somehow get this written. I also knew I would at some point; have to share this amazing story with her if or when I got to know her better. It was interesting recalling my early childhood, and the events that brought me to that wonderful summer of discovery, and falling in love for what I believed then to be the first and last time in my life. That summer held some of the keys to the person I would become as I grew up, and dealt with life at all ages.

China is an amazing country, a place that needs time and complete immersion to be able to understand. I took a job as a tour leader and instantly I was out of my depth. I experienced places and situations that I could never have been prepared for and all with a group of paying tourists who were looking to me for guidance. However, it was not long before I saw that the people who had saved up for their holiday of a life time were far less prepared than I was. Over the first season I visited many parts of the vast country, sampling the culture and learning much about what China is. I had some sticky situations and a lot of laughs with friends that I will keep forever. Would you let me be your tour guide?
