Starting again... Truth Before Dawn

Above is a scene from Oscar-winning actor Gary Oldman, who plays Prime Minister of Great Britain Winston Churchill in the movie Darkest Hour. As Nazi Germany dominates Western Europe, Churchill faces his darkest hour in choosing between negotiating a peace treaty with Nazi Führer Adolph Hitler, or standing firm to fight for the ideals that represent the freedom of a nation. By 1945 Germany and Japan were defeated by the Allies, which included the US, Britain and others.

I mention the plot of this movie and Churchill because I believe it is in one's darkest hour that character is tested and truth comes to light. That's what I had in mind 20 years ago when I titled my fan fiction Truth Before Dawn. On the TV show One Life to Live, multiple Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Mel Hayes was revered. At least one of his Pulitzers was won for his coverage of the Vietnam War. He was always speaking of truth and showing contempt toward those he believed stood in the way of truth. The premise of Truth Before Dawn is to explore a man seen as evil who is a truth teller and a so-called truth seeker who lives a lie. Truth and lies are juxtaposed throughout the story, which takes place around Christmas in the late 90s.

20 years ago... I began writing what I had hoped would be an intriguing story for fans of Dorian and Mel Hayes. I stayed true to the writing for many years and then took a break with real-life demands, um... a long break. More recently, I decided to take a stab at finishing it. Part of the delay was that I didn't want to post it until I had finished writing, which was an artificial pressure. And too here is the weird part, to keep the creative juices flowing, I had to hear the characters--in their voices, not mine-- tell me what to do. I hope that you will read Truth Before Dawn and join me in exploring mystery and romance as hidden truths come to light.

Truth Before Dawn
