It's the year 1675. Eighteen-year-old Lukas Pietersen is about to consume the ceremonial substance known as Moon Flower.
The potent seeds from this nighttime blooming plant, prepared and administered by a shaman, will cause Lukas to lose his memory and thus begin his quest of becoming a warrior of the Pequawket tribe.
From the New World to the city of Amsterdam, down to the slave coast of West Africa, and across the Atlantic Ocean to the slave mart of Charles Town, Moon Flower follows Lukas as he meets chiefs, shamans, warriors, and the English army on his journey to forge a connection with the Great Spirit and battle a fearsome evil being called the Wendigo.
BIOGRAPHY Neil Perry Gordon achieved his personal goal as an author of historical-fiction with his first novel--A Cobbler's Tale, published in the fall of 2018. With over fifty four and five star reviews praising the story and his writing style, he released his second novel--Moon Flower the following year. In the fall of 2019 the metaphysical fiction sequel to A Cobbler's Tale--The Righteous One was published.
His creative writing methods and inspiration have been described as organic; meaning that he works with a general storyline for his characters and plot, rather than with a formal, detailed outline. This encourages his writing to offer surprising twists and unexpected outcomes, which readers have celebrated.
His novels also have the attributes of being driven by an equal balance between character development, and face-paced action scenes, which moves the stories along at a swift page-turning pace.
Ready for 2020, Neil Perry Gordon once again explores the historical-fiction genre with two new novels: Hope City and The Bomb Squad.
Hope City is the first in a series chronicling the 1898 Alaskan adventures of the protagonist--Percy Hope. While The Bomb Squad tells the World War 1 story of Max Rothman an American patriot, protecting the homeland from the German spy, Dr. Harold Schwartz.
The author has attributed his love for the creative process from his formative years spent learning-to-learn at the Green Meadow Waldorf School.
