Product description

Product Description

If she wanted help changing the world for one forgotten child, she chose the wrong man. Seventy-two-year-old Francis Frick would scorn his own family to close another deal, but that doesn't bother Bee, the small, childish, flying being that haunts his bedroom each night. She is an optimist, seeing potential where none exists, and so she hovers above Frick's bed, eating pomegranates, and waiting for his eyes to open to the possibilities. One night, it finally happens. A rogue droplet of juice slips through her fingers and hits the sleeping Manhattan businessman on the forehead, thrusting him on a series of baffling adventures to some of the twentieth century’s most brutal regimes—all to help Bee save a forgotten child of history.

A Man Too Old for a Place Too Far is part one of The Forgotten Child Trilogy—a one-of-a-kind adventure that mixes time travel, magical realism, and historical fiction into a contemporary story about an old man, his estranged daughter, and a tiny flying being in a white robe, who chooses to believe that anything can happen with enough prodding and an endless supply of pomegranates.

About the Author

Mark W Sasse is a proud Western PA native but has lived most of the last twenty years in Vietnam, Malaysia, and Saudi Arabia. His experiences in Asia have redefined everything including his palate, his outlook on life, and, naturally, his writing. He has authored seven novels with more on the horizon. His interests cast a wide net - from politics to literature - to culture and language - to history and religion - making his writing infused with the unexpected as he seeks to tell authentic and engaging stories about people from all walks of life. His writing is straightforward and accessible to all, especially those who enjoy writing injected with doses of adventure, culture, history, and delightful humor. You never know what you might get when you pick up a Sasse novel. Besides novel-writing, Sasse is an award-winning playwright. His play "The Last Bastion" earned him the Greywood Arts Winter Writing Residency for 2018. Sasse has written and produced more than a dozen full-length dramatic productions. He is especially fond of the short play format and has won the Best Script award three consecutive years at the Short & Sweet Theatre Festival Penang. His play, "Words to Say at the End of the World" won five awards in 2015 including Best Overall Performance and Best Director. His plays and short musicals have also been produced in New York, Kuala Lumpur and Sydney, Australia. Performances of his scripts have won Gold and Bronze medals at the Southeast Asian Forensics Competition 2014. His professional background is as diverse as his writing. He holds Master's degrees from California State University Dominquez Hills and Azusa Pacific University in Humanities and TESOL respectively. His undergraduate degree was in English, which helped him develop his passion for creative writing. He has extensive experience in teaching English, history, and drama. On top of all of this, he loves to cook everything from gourmet pizzas, to Mexican, to various Asian dishes. Flavor is the key of both his cooking and his writing. He very much hopes you enjoy the taste. www.mwsasse.com
