The story is replete with foul language, some drug use, and has some bawdy comments with sexual overtones. There is also a tinge of violence as well. But I strived for authenticity, while allowing literary license, and those are all components I recall well in the MC world. However, it is also brimming with humor, and a warm sense of love and family. It’s not just a story about life in a motorcycle club. It’s about LIFE! It’s about FAMILY! It’s about knowing that….“…you’ll shed blood for your family, but you don’t need blood to be family.”Plot:Where does a man learn about loyalty, justice, faith, honor, sacrifice, commitment, pride, and the concept offamily? When he was eleven years old, Digger Garcia’s mom bought him a motorcycle, and that has been the only true constant in his life. Digger was raised in Elkhart, Indiana living a seemingly normal life. He was an Eagle Scout, a proud Marine, serving two tours in Iraq, and he was a man who believed he would personify the American dream. But now as Digger nears forty, he sees that the American dream left him behind, leaving him in search of answers, in search of family, in search of love.Digger, the quintessential green double-zero on the roulette wheel, fitting in nowhere, keeping things off balance, moves to the Tampa Bay area where he meets an old Vietnam veteran, Tommy (Solomon) Starke. Solomon is the founder of the iconic Demons Rising Motorcycle Club, and he introduces Digger to the outlaw motorcycle club world. Digger earns respect quickly and is elected sergeant-at-arms. He meets Mary Ellen (Venus) Webb at a local bar and brings her into his circle. Digger’s love for the enigmatic and misguided Venus seems to steer him in all directions, keeping him off balance. Solomon soon becomes Digger’s mentor and helps him combine his love of motorcycles with his quest for a real concept of family by teaching him lessons he doesn’t always want to learn. But miles behind the handlebars, and lessons from the road, all help Digger learn that you’ll shed blood for your family, but you do not need blood to be family.
