About the author


The co-authors, D. Davidson and R. Marcano, grew up on Long Island and in New York City. They have been lifelong friends and their unique relationship has weathered the test of time. After serving together in the U.S. Air Force in South Korea the two men formed an unshakeable bond. Although life would take them down separate paths and eventually separate them by three-time zones—their time in Korea would remain their strongest connection.

Now, their common goal is to share their life experience with others. Their stories, although works of fiction, are sprinkled with the hard truth of how ugly life can be for anyone. Although their take on romance and love may come from the male point of view—readers come away with an honest understanding of why there is always so much conflict between men and women—no matter the depth or shallowness of the relationship.

Description


Butterfly Wish is a story about friendship, love, loyalty and betrayal. But it is mostly about unchecked human behavior in a mecca of sex and violence. Shane Brennan and Manny Veneto are stationed in the Republic of South Korea in 1963 when suddenly they are dragged into the dark world of sin and exploitation. The two men are serving in the United States Air Force when their world surprisingly changes forever. Fifty some odd years later they decide to return to South Korea to find forgiveness and resolution to their life-long struggle with guilt. What happens to them upon their return is extraordinary. The story-line is edgy and often brutal in its details. (Adult Fiction). Contains some profanity-graphic sex and violence. Intended for readers 18 years of age and older.
