Bio: So, tough guy, think you'd like to be a character in one of my books? Fine, but please be advised you will be tested. You will deal with restraints -- ropes, leather straps, chains, whatever suits my story. You might be placed in ancient times, contemporary or future times. You will be made vulnerable, stripped and exposed, at the mercy of me and other men of my choosing, and you will suffer. But, you will never be damaged. If you prove yourself worthy you will be worshiped like all who came before you in my previous books. There are rewards for surviving my punishments, because I, Jardonn Smith, adore men of strength, defiance and virility. You, my next male lead, will be my hero. You will be immortalized in print for all to love same as I do.
A veteran of WWI visits a midwestern train terminal during WWII, hoping to meet a few traveling soldiers and lift their spirits during the holidays, but he soon finds his charity being taken to places beyond his imagination.
In 1938, people had no fears of ghosts. This was the Great Depression. Fear was empty pockets and empty stomachs, but for the men of Jardonn Smith's Green River, working a Highway 66 project in the WPA meant a full-time job and steady wages. Sure, there's a disgruntled spirit living under the river bridge near their camp, but the only question they have is, "Whose willie will he go for next?" This story is part of the anthology "Past Shadows"
Grit permeates each crevice of the Great Depression and the men living through it. This sex-saturated tale from William Maltese and Jardonn Smith is of have's and have-not's -- who run trains across the Dust Bowl ... who hitch trains to escape poverty and despair.
In this collection of stories, Jardonn brings the reader into the lives of some extraordinarily average men. Take a glimpse at the lives of these men as they deal with what life throws at them with honor, dignity and the strength of their partner's love. The common theme of the stories: love doesn't need to be all flash to last the test of time.
Making love inside a Nazi POW camp is impossible. Falling in love is not, but death by slow starvation is a grim proposition, so when two U.S. airmen prisoners see their chance for escape they take it. Success will require much courage and faith in each other, plus a little help from an unexpected guide.
