The author and the publisher

Peter Campbell was not the most popular kid in school. He was always aiming for average and seemed to be fine with that until the night in that dark movie theater when he discovered his incendiary stigmata. 

This startling discovery catapulted Peter Campbell into a world populated with shyster preachers, honest carnies, heavenly-yet-homely tenors, and the Tennessee Tornado.
Peter Campbell’s life was upended the day he agreed to join the revival tent circuit with two preachers who were focused on exploiting his rare talents for their own good. 
Set in (and around) the fictional town of Orton’s Cove, Peter Campbell comes of age with the help he receives from the most unexpected places. He is also – more or less – the catalyst for the nascent news network CNN.
