What's your vision?
Author: Ward J. Pyle Title: Zeke Subtitle: Stage One Book description: Zeke is an amazing person that has abilities that are far beyond most humans. He can do things that make most humans cannot not understand what he is doing at times. Zeke starts out his mid-life as a person that is totally out of control with his bad habits and with life in general. He recovers again to start his life out as someone whom is not supposed to make it as a new-born, though he does. This journey for Zeke is one where it takes a twist and turn to where the reader walks with him as he travels through his middle age to a very short degree and then extenuating for the rest of the journey throughout his young life. Zeke has the most amazing childhood that life could offer and the best setting for his upbringing as far as a neighborhood is concerned. His life is far from perfect as you will see, but what he makes of it is the best story of all. Zeke navigates through his childhood as if he knew it was coming and continues this way throughout his life. As Zeke makes his way through this journey, he stumbles and falls, just like all of us do, but seemingly makes a better path to get by at every step of the way. The information coming from his life knowledge does not come from any human, but from God himself. This is not a religious kind of story as you may think, but on the contrary, it is a book about life in which tells a story of real-life situations that occur and sometimes does not hide the fact that harsh words and situations happen. Please step inside and take the ride of a lifetime. Author Bio: Ward J. Pyle received two degrees from Purdue University which has helped him develop many processes in the manufacturing world. He has designed houses, ice dispensers, food handling equipment, various types of conveying equipment, filling machines, sealing machines, package handling equipment, vibrating conveyors, fork lifts, and much more. Ward is a person that respects the one that created us and the one that buffers us from the other. To him nothing matters more than making people happy- whether it is making them laugh or crying tears of joy. Ward plans to make "Zeke" a series of books. Zeke, Stage One is the first installment in that series. Author pic attached to use for back cover
