Gary Smith, Photographer, and author of The Willing, uses his unique perspective and well-honed instincts to take us on a journey replete with vivid descriptions of the beauty and culture of Northern Italy.
“Real life” fictional character Warren Steelgrave has settled into his author’s persona amongst new-found relatives and friends in a small village in Northern Italy. After three years, his possible soulmate and object of romantic memories, Cindy O’Brian comes back into his life. New adventures unfold involving the son of an old friend and the intrigue of the FBI, a crime family, and a long-lost secret for Nicola Tesla’s “death ray”
Warren is again “willing” to put his life on the line, but can Cindy accept the realization that the man she loves will always “live a life separate” even if they are together? While they are back in the United States, with trouble in tow, his eldest daughter adds insight when she tells Cindy “welcome to Warren’s world.”
Perhaps the safest place to enjoy the unfolding of events is from a safe distance as the reader of Mr. Smith’s newest novel.

She finished her second cup of coffee and walked towards the television to turn it off on her way out the door to go to work, when the news reporter announced another murder victim was found. She stopped and turned up the volume. This was the third girl in three months. Someone was hunting in her territory. She has been so careful with her hunting, sure to never have more than two a year in the county. The rest of her victims were taken while on vacation far away from home...
I was sitting with Anne, my dog and traveling companion. We were enjoying the late afternoon sky change into twilight; I was watching an elderly gentleman across the way with a cane, hobbling, and struggling to prepare a fire. He appeared to be old I would guess early 80’s, or older. As I studied his labored movements, I thought about myself just turning 68. I could not help but to think, that is my future, sooner than I am willing to admit...
