 A Safe Distance is the story of two people whose lives are dramatically altered by a random act of violence and the choices they make in an effort to get on with their lives.  Ten years is a long time to wonder what difference a single hour might have made to the rest of one's life.  Such is the plight of the two main characters. Most of us occasionally wonder whether our lives would have been different had we made different choices--had we gone "left" instead of "right" at the proverbial "fork in the road", or perhaps responded differently to the challenges we faced along the way.  Unfortunately, while hindsight allows us to ask the question, real life rarely provides the answer.  And real-life almost never provides a second chance.  Enter fiction.

In A Safe Distance, two people have an opportunity to return to the "fork" and, this time, take the other path. Their journey to the "fork" and back and what they discover along the way about themselves, about each other, and about life, is what the book is really about.  It attempts to combine elements of suspense, humor, anger, friendship, hopelessness, love—in other words "life"—in a way that the author hopes will both entertain and perhaps invite critical thought, reflection and conversation.
