You think you are leading a normal life; working, young, happy, having fun, so you keep the weird stuff
that goes on in your head right where it's at: in your head. You don't talk about it; not to your wife or
husband, not to your girlfriend or boyfriend and not to your most intimate confidante. Normal people
don't have these thoughts, these dreams while they sleep; certainly not when they are awake. That's
right, isn't it? Do they?
Jake and Diane came up with the idea for Jake and Diane: An American Novel. Two unknown teenagers,
from a small town who, unexpectedly, reminded me that everyone has a story worth hearing. They
reminded me of the last two people who told me exactly that. They said people can be too busy listening
to themselves so they ignore the life next to them. I thank them for that reminder.
Louis Sunderland is self-made, self-spoiled, young, handsome, wealthy and powerful. He is the idol of
millions yet was abandoned by his parents. With all his advantages and the extraordinary influence he
wields, he does not use them but to be bread-winner of employees dependent upon his success. On
realization there may be nothing more than this for him in this world, he undertakes a journey using
some one else's name, unaware there is unexpected heavy baggage that goes with him.
Destination Standerton is a story of love, seeded and surviving, in the face of the horrors of war. Coming
face-to-face with the existence of concentration camps in 1899, the young Sunderland discovers, and
writes, a love story founded out of extreme deprivation.
