‘What is there to do in Roswell?’
That’s what was on Jacob Will’s mind as he pulled into town. There was no shortage of signs, businesses, museums, and teams commemorating the aliens’ place in local culture. Short of boarding the next saucer out, it really wasn’t that different from other towns. Besides, he’d seen weirder things at the advertising agency he’d worked at.
So, not necessarily a believer in things UFOs, extra-terrestrial and such, he still wanted something to remember his visit and a crappy baseball cap wouldn’t do. His solution was as alien to him as those portrayed all over town. But what did that have to do with his eleven little deaths?

Writer, author and photographer Bruce Meisterman is known for his non-fiction documentary book Arn? Narn. He has since turned to writing fiction. He has now written his second book of fiction The Light Inerrant.
All light, the sun, stars, electrical, and reflections, disappear only to return momentarily, again and again. Not surprisingly, fear spreads across the globe. It will take a dedicated group of scientists to discover light has become sentient. And that's not even the biggest surprise they'll encounter.
His first book of fiction A Coward's Guide to Living could best be described as Homer's Odyssey meets Thelma and Louise, minus Louise.
Most people start their mornings with a cup of coffee. Jacob Will's started with attending the funeral of his best friend. And in a letter left for him by the deceased, he was charged with getting his act together - big time. It would take him across the country into places he never thought of visiting, interacting with people for the first time in a genuine way, and finding and then losing love.
