Marica from THE BOOK CHICK posted a great review of book 1 of my new trilogy A Man Too Old for a Place Too Far. 

Here’s an excerpt of what she had to say. Please check out the full review at the link below from THE BOOK CHICK.

“I was a little skeptical when I started the book but now I’m happy that I gave it a shot. I’m pleasantly surprised with the book and its story and Sasses unique way of writing. It was refreshing and new …”

“It is an intriguing story and Mr Sasse do (sic) not give the readers much to figure out how it all fits together until the end. The language is easy to read and understand and the book keeps the same flow through and through. All the characters are great and keeps evolving deeper in the story and the whole book just captivates you …”

The Forgotten Child Trilogy – Coming Soon!

I can scarcely remember when I started writing this trilogy. I believe it was in December of 2015 that I began dabbling with the idea. I had a strange visual of a tiny person in a white robe, eating a pomegranate while hovering over top of the bed of an old man sleeping. That image was the genesis of this trilogy. I had no idea what it meant or who these people were, but I had so much fun discovering it!

It turns out that the old man sleeping was none other than Manhattan businessman Francis Frick. He’s quite a character as you will see. He’s not the most pleasant person to be around as his daughter Ruthy Frick knows all too well.

And what about that strange flying being eating pomegranates over his bed? Well, her name is Bee. She’s also quite the character, opposite of Mr. Frick in just about every way imaginable. But it seems like their destinies are linked. An otherworldly being, and her faithful companion Ash, will have to deal with Mr Francis Frick if they are to achieve their goal – save a child in history who never mattered – that is, The Forgotten Child.

This is an adventure through time spanning four continents and one-hundred years. From Scotland to Cambodia, from the South Pacific to Africa, from Romania to Manhattan, get ready for a new adventure into the heart of the 20th century. Bee will be your guide, and she’s a lovely little person with which to spend the afternoon.

Only One Way to Go: Down

I was driving a van up a one-way, steep mountain incline. Four of us were on our way to a mountaintop retreat with a van packed with luggage and accessories. I whipped around one steep turn and gunned it in first as I plodded up the hill when a horribly sick sinking feeling struck me: this van was not going to make it. It bogged down and nearly stalled. The power had dissipated. The only thing which was still going higher was the engine temperature. A driving predicament presented itself in vivid tropical terms: to the left was a steep cliff down to a quick death, to the right was walled cliff straight up, to the front was the steep grade my van couldn’t conquer, so only one option remained. Down.

As I looked in my rear view mirror, I didn’t like this option any better than the other three. Well, okay, it was better than the cliff to my left. The mirror revealed a narrow steep path I would have to back down. At the bottom of the grade was a hairpin turn that I would have to make in reverse with a van full of people. If I missed the turn, we would scoot into a large gully. I didn’t like our chances. I wanted better odds, but if I couldn’t get better odds, at least I hoped I had good brakes. I didn’t want to back this down, but there was no other choice. We couldn’t very well stay stuck on the steep grade for eternity.

So with the clutch pushed in, I started backing down, now hoping, trusting, and wishing on the brakes.

Life, from time to time, gives us little moments to increase our awareness of our own humanity. One slight misdirect and it all goes crashing over the cliff. The heart rate increases, the tense eyes are brought tenser by the dour movement of the eyebrows, muscles contract, the voice is slightly raised and urgent, sights and sounds are zoomed into a narrow focus — keep it tight, keep it real, stay focused, a lot rides on this — and you give it all you have to make it right, even if it doesn’t feel right in your gut.

When was the last time you felt like this? When was the last time that circumstances gave you a lesson in humanity, its frailness, its fickleness, its fleet-footed-ness?

In this particular case, I backed the van down to the lip of the curve, and as providence would have it, a van-sized pull-off was on the right. All I had to do was pull up the hill a smidgen, back carefully into the pull-off without my front tire falling off the cliff on the right, and I was on flat ground in the middle of mountain. I could breathe again.

Whatever cliff you are next to, keep the focus, look for the nearest pull-off and remind yourself that it’s a good day to be alive.
