From best-selling poet of “This is 2020” and “Their Footsteps,” Kassie J Runyan, comes her debut novel. “The Death and Life of John Doe” takes a deep look into trauma, the human psyche, and the struggle of living on the street.

Our nameless nomad walks out of his suburban home, leaving his life behind. Not knowing what he is looking for... or what he is running from. He shuts the door and heads into a world full of the pain and joy waiting for him with each heavy step. He has forgotten who he is. Who he was. But still he keeps moving forward, driven by a desire to find a reason for this life and to discover what he has forgotten. What he wasn’t prepared for were the dreams.

“I was constantly questioning what was going on at the same time as being comforted by inner dialog. I figured everything out the same time that JD did. I cried with him. I laughed with him. And when I read the last sentence, I finally breathed out with him.”


- David Miller, Author
