Item description for Giver of Gifts by Terry Persun...
After his daughter's death in a car wreck, fifty-eight year old Jim finds himself detached from the world. He and his wife are fond but distant; he barely knows his married son. Without a sense of purpose, the news of his cancer pushes nice-guy Jim face to face with his mortality.
Aware of his terminal condition, Jim embarks upon a hunting expedition with friends. Never a serious hunter, he finds himself reflecting upon his life as he wanders the woods. Shocked into the moment by a chance encounter with a magnificent trio of deer, he experiences a miraculous moment that definitively alters his outlook on his life and his family.

I've been writing since I was in grade school and failed to win the big fourth-grade short story contest. Being rather competitive at the time, I started writing and showing my stories to family members. Since that beginning, I've gone to school, received an MA in Creative Writing, and published tons of material. I write anything and everything from technical articles to literary novels. My poetry has shown up in University and small press journals and magazines all over the U.S. My genre fiction is just starting to appear as well.

The Magician's Rope Jun 16, 2006
Once again, author Terry Persun combines a sparse, elegant style with a focus uniquely his own. In this and his other recent works, The Witness Tree and Wolf's Rite, the visceral and the spiritual interwine like the strands of a magic rope. At the limits of human experience--in pain, in fear of their lives, in fear of their own damnation--his characters find solace and hope in what is invisible to those less tested. When his characters touch the elemental and are transformed, so are we. Giver of Gifts is a fine and moving piece of writing. Highly recommended.
