During the day, love, devotion, and passion hold fast, illuminating all they touch. The power and sway moves one like a river rushing along its bed. But as night descends, their presence becomes veiled by half-waking dreams, blissful hallucinations, and fantasy-ridden visions. Euphoria and yearning become fervor until the fresh morning brings temperance once more.

short stories by Ray Van Horn, Jr.
Coming of Rage and six other short stories reflect the human spirit and learning how to rise up and meet adversity. To stand face-to-face with it, then overcome. These are tales of young and old, tragic and strong, broken but still standing. When a young man realizes all isn’t as he imagined it would be. When a woman relives her painful past and chooses to walk through the coals for the freedom on the other side. And when skin color becomes more than just skin-deep. These are the moments that shape us. The moments we make a decision to continue along our path of destruction or to rise above and allow wisdom to mold our minds into something new. A common thread of hard turning points and difficult decisions rendered weave throughout each tale as author Ray Van Horn, Jr. draws on his many years experience in the music industry where he rubbed elbows with drummers, vocalists, bands, groupies, managers, roadies, and die-hard fans.
