30 September 2017 marked an important day in the life of Author Richard J. Bennett … he retired from being a City Carrier with the USPS, and now has more time (and energy) to pursue his hobbies and interests, especially writing and recording. He has finished the audible version of ‘The Mighty Hogs of Lovely High”, again (since the first recording was erased by the Computer Store while removing a virus), and is now in post-production. He has joined a local writer’s workshop in the DFW area, and spends most of his new-found freedom swimming at the 24-hour fitness, working on the yard, napping, improving what he’s already written, and has started the third book of the ‘Lovely’ series … so watch for new developments !
A Pigeon’s Tale is the latest novel from S.A. Mahan. It is available as an audio book with Richard J. Bennett as the narrator.
Young Walter is a pigeon living a simple life in a rancher’s coop when an attack sees him barely escape with his life to the big city. When he heads south for the winter, he’s adopted by a family of ranchers … and his life is never the same.
Walter bonds especially well with the scientist grandfather who begins working with the pigeon on a secret project in which nothing is as it seems. As a pending catastrophe looms, Walter learns all about the ancient history and hidden abilities of his kind — and comes face-to-face with his own destiny.
Surrounded by forces beyond his understanding, the fate of the earth hangs in the balance as Walter faces a struggle that challenges everything he knows.
