About this title:

Synopsis: A Moment in Time is a story of encouragement that should be read by all who have an interest in the human journey. Born in rural Eastern North Carolina of parents near poverty, Chris has told his story from the heart. From his southern roots, Chris is masterful at scattering bits of southern humor throughout the story he tells, which brings a smile to your face. Death brought on despair at an early age for Chris and drugs brought on challenges to an already confusing world. Concealing a deep dark secret was hard and challenging at times and caused Chris to question his God. A failed relationship brought on many moments of sad reflection, but a new love brought about happiness and laughter. Sue: "I loved it!!! It made me laugh and it made me cry --and evoked many other emotions as well." Jan: "This is a compelling and beautiful love story. It is an easy and fun read filled with insights not only into the climb out of poverty but the coming of age of a young man in the Sixties and beyond." Rosie: "I was sitting in the parking lot of the Y in Rehoboth bawling my eyes out.I wanted to drive up to your house and give you the BIGGEST hug in the entire universe! It was an inspirational story." Peggi: "I was struck by the author's honesty and candid story. He 'shows' the story rather than simply telling it. That is, one can visualize the environment and even feel the tension." John: "I put A Moment in Time on my recommended reading list last semester (I teach English at a community college just outside of Washington, D.C.). A couple of Saudi students read it, and decided to do a presentation on same sex marriage for the class. I can make a general observation - students from Asia, Slavic countries, Latin America are very supportive, but students from the Middle East and Africa are astonished that Washington, DC recognizes same sex marriage. I'm not going to be able to change any minds, and that's not really my intent as a teacher, but your book will help to get the dialogue going, and education is the key to tolerance."

From the Author: Writing this book was an amazing journey in and of itself. As I sat at the computer my fingers could not keep up with the emotions, thoughts, and words that poured out of my memory bank about my past. I laughed again at the same moment in time; I relived my first love and experienced that joy; and I felt the pain again of those sad moments in time. This experience has caused me to embraced life to the fullest as I live it, as I may not have another moment in time to write it down!

Book Description Outskirts Press, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Born in rural Eastern North Carolina of parents near poverty, Chris begins his story of his early years and about the love so deeply shared between his Mama and himself. As the first child of a family that would eventually grow to five, Chris remembers the early years when he didn t have to share his mother s love with other siblings. Time alone with his mother was all that mattered, and she, likewise, expressed what mattered to her: On a beautiful day the sixth of June, nineteen years ago, a beautiful baby came to brighten our home and oh! How we loved him so. Once his baby sister was born into the family, Chris jealousness of his mother s love for the newborn forced him to look elsewhere to find a repository for his love. He found it next door at his Grandma s. Chris worshiped his Grandma Pittman and she gave that love and attention back to him until Chris had to deal with his first lost of love to death. Chris continues his story into adolescence dreaming of escaping his rural world defined by cornfields, vegetable gardens and his mama s religion, a world that was warm, secure and safe, yet confining, confusing and suffocating. During these young years, he confronts his dad s addiction to prescription drugs and his perceived need to take on the heavy responsibility as head of the family. Adding to the uncertainty and confusion already surrounding him, he was startled to realize he was attracted to men, a state he intuitively knew would not please his mama s God and one he would wrestle with for five lonely years. As a young man in college, Chris hungrily reached out for life to experience all that he had missed in his early years having come from a fundamental religious background that denied him so much of life, as he saw it. In his excitement for life, Chris had no time to finish college so he dropped out after one and one-half years with the idea he would finish school later. With just enough of a taste of life outside the church, Chris knew he could no longer live at home in the rural setting in which he was born. Chris met his first life partner and experienced his first love. It was this relationship that provided him the escape from his hometown, an escape that allowed him to hide his secret life from family. As poor as they were, their love was unfaltering and they made their way together for almost twelve years. Not able to settle their differences, Chris and his partner separated in what turned out to be a most unsettling emotional journey. It was during this period of time Chris met his second life partner, a story of love and passion that lives on after thirty years today. Chris finished his education and obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Applied Behavioral Science from National Lewis University in Evanston, Illinois. In addition, he enjoyed a successful career with the U.S. Department of Education, affording him the opportunity to work with and learn from very prominent high-ranking political figures. Loosing his Grandma, Daddy, first life partner, younger brother, and Mama in death, Chris view of death and the loss of love therein saddened him. The sadness these deaths brought to him, coupled with his obsession to live forever, led him to tell his journey of happiness, love, laughter, grief and sorrow in A Moment in Time.
