My New Book, A Matter for Survival, is out on Amazon!

July 15, 2010


Hi, people. My new book, a thriller called A Matter for Survival, written as a collaboration with my wife, Dr. Lydia Frenzel, under the name of L.C. Frenzel, is out on Amazon in Kindle format. This book draws on characters you meet in shipyards and around the oil patch. Maybe you’ll enjoy a glimpse into the muddy workings of southern Louisianna. This book has a strong female main character, a high school girl named Callie Houston…as you might have guessed if you’ve listened to any of my wife’s lectures.


In the pre-Katrina world of south Louisiana, a high school girl and her mother are caught up in a violent act of retribution.Callie Houston lives with her single-parent mom, Jeanne, in the small town of Hammond, La. She’s a smart, impulsive young woman who figures she can handle almost anything. Suddenly her world is turned upside down when her mother is kidnapped by Tony Ryan, one of her mother’s accounting business clients. The mobster is looking for papers incriminating him in an embezzlement scheme. Blood, pain, and violent death replace her sheltered world of books and nature.Callie’s story is not only about how she survives her ordeal, but also how painful choices are part of growing up.
