I wrote my first book A Train Called Forgiveness based on my personal history. The book is a fiction based on reality. At the time, I had no idea that the book would grow into a trilogy. The Cult Trilogy.
Book 1: A Train Called Forgiveness follows the life of a young man named Andy Burden. Andy is in his late twenties and is struggling with his past experience of being a child victim of a cult. He travels around the country by train as a form of escape and therapy. Through the story, Andy meets an array of unusual characters. These characters help him on his journey as Andy learns to embrace values such as forgiveness and non judgment.
A Train Called Forgiveness is available at Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Train-Called-Forgiveness-Dan-Erickson/dp/1475111932
Book 2: At the Crossing of Justice and Mercy takes place twenty years after Andy Burden’s journey on A Train Called Forgiveness. In this book Andy’s brother, Simon, discovers that the cult leader of their youth might still be alive and operating a new cult in a new location. Andy, with the help of his brother, his daughter, a dog, and a black belt in karate, sets out on a journey to discover the truth. If Andy finds that cult leader, Peter Smith, is still alive, he’ll have to make a hard choice between justice and mercy.
At the Crossing of Justice and Mercy has an expected release date of December, 2012.
Book 3: The Track to Redemption is in the early writing stages. The book will follow the theme of redemption. The question: who is being redeemed? More importantly: who can be redeemed? Can someone who commits heinous crimes against humanity be redeemed? If so, by whose standards?
