Ocean Ridge town attorney Kenneth Spillias has departed from his daily genre of resolutions and ordinances to pen a newly published novel, Widow’s Walk, Part I: The Precipice.
The self-published book is set in South Florida and tells the tale of character Jim Donovan in his lifelong struggle between good and evil. Donovan achieves great heights as an evangelist in South Florida and later falls in a scandal that drives him and his wife to Africa, according to the Amazon.com description.
Amazon.com prices Widow’s Walk at $27.35 in hardcover, $13.13 in paperback and $6.99 for the Kindle edition.
The book started as a short story, evolving into a two-part novel, Spillias said recently. Spillias said of authoring the novel, “It was not a chore.” He had heard authors tell how their books write themselves, but was surprised to experience it. “It took over for me,” he said.
The second book will be Widow’s Walk, Part 2: The Reckoning.
