About the Author

C. D. Lane

Dee Lane grew up in Birch River, West Virginia. A very small town with no stop lights. Youthful habits were not typical, and mistakes were made that would shape who he is now in spite of the fact he was attempting to cover up who he was then. His promiscuity bordered on predatory and his seductions were numerous. Mr. Lane has always been outspoken and often words escape his mouth with little or no filter. Leaving home at barely 18 to make his way in the world. The life and times of Dee Lane are at times not pretty stories, but then life rarely is perfect for anyone. Joining the military and serving for 10 years, marrying his best friend and having a beautiful daughter are just the best parts. The darker ones were the lies it took to cover the truths... He worked in restaurants all over the world during military service. It was an easy transition when he decided to end his military career. By his doctors orders, Mr. Lane is now retired completely, and writes as best as he can.
