Excerpt




Upon entering a large opening inside an optic tunnel, I encountered an intense exhibition of flashing lights that failed to captivate my attention. The weakness came on more quickly than usual.

A flash fired right in front of my face.

I saw a beach and felt the water caressing my feet. A second flash snapped me out of my momentary trance. My strength was waning; the end was near. Another bright flash to my left, and I saw sparks escaping the barrel. I heard the gunshot, and watched her fall. Flash. My heart pounded like a jackhammer as I stepped through the windowpane of a house lit with red neon lights.

The stunningly perfect female form held my hand, leading me up the narrow winding staircase into a small room. I saw myself lying naked in front of her as she helped me overcome anxiety. Flash. As my energy wilted and I began to drift, the flashes around me turned into a solid bright light.

I saw my father’s face and felt his disapproval of my cowardly exit. It pierced through me like a bolt of lightning, stinging my vaporous soul. Flash. Instantly, I knew that my life could not end. I summoned the remaining morsel of power in order to accelerate in the familiar direction.



About the author


"My family immigrated to United States 1989 from the former Soviet Union. I was 12 when my parents abandoned the life of religious persecution and, as refugees, came to the United States. I believe it was the single most important moment of our lives.

Superhighway is my first experience writing a novel. look at writing as an amplification of teaching. The ability to touch a large number of people with my thoughts is an amazing reward, inspiration and goal!"
