About

A Marijuana Man

In 1983 I had an idea for this book. An over the next several years, I would run storylines through my head. It was a serious accident in 2010 that put me in the hospital, which gave me time to start putting word to paper. Over the next four months of rehab, the book was written. The reality of needing income pushed me back to work, the book went into a book bag and it found a new home in my closet. In 2015 my wife of 28 years got very sick and I gave up work to become her 24/7 caregiver. She was in and out of the hospital over the next 9 months a dosen times. I would come in the mornings and spend the day with her. The second visit to the hospital, she said to me. " Steve, go home and pull the book out, it is the story of our past and it can be our future. So get off your ass and finish the Dam story. " Part of the book was her story too. She graduated from the U of California At Berkley in the mid-'60s. She was politically active since she was a teen, she was in Chicago for the protest at the Democratic National Convention in 1968, then again in Washington DC 1969, where she was arrested with many others for disturbing the peace. I went back to work on the book. She passed in 2016 and the book became my reason to get up every morning. 2017 the book was published. I hope you enjoy it, I know she would have.

It would take a perfect storm in time to create the need, the money, and the politics that would create in the 1860s the birth of the Sicilian Mafia.

It will take a perfect plan by Don Leonardo La Barbra to save his ancient family's estate and business from his weak son and his twin uncles who now control it all. A bred male for a near-impossible job was trained from birth to be a solder, analytical thinker, and to be a fearless leader in any situation.
