Looking for acceptance, Jake pairs up with Ryan, the outgoing and daring new kid in the neighborhood. It doesn't take long before the two unsupervised boys find themselves involved in a host of criminal activity. After becoming involved in an organized gambling ring, life's all fun and games.... until disaster strikes. They never saw it coming, neither will you!
Mingo Twain spent his childhood growing up in the wild and wonderful mountains of southern West Virginia. Fortunately, for him, he has a wonderful caring mother, unlike the one in Burning Rock. He currently resides on a small lake in McCalla, Alabama, where he enjoys sitting in the evenings on his deck. With notebook in hand, he overlooks the calm and peaceful water as he pens wild tales for your reading pleasure. He enjoys the lighter side of life. When asked why he likes to write he responds, I can't dance and it's too wet to plow.
