Read full description of the books Leaving Panama - A Short Story:The year is 1969. A a young soldier named Hicks faces a moral dilemma. He's riddled with guilt over getting a sixteen-year-old Panamanian girl pregnant. He's leaving Panama but doesn't want to leave saddled with the overwhelming guilt he's feeling, and he's already decided he's not taking her back to the states with him. The only option Hicks can come up with to alleviate his guilt is serving some kind of self-directed penance. So he comes up with a plan that puts his fate in the hands of a razor-wielding prostitute named Crazy Lucy.
Read information about the authorRuss Melrose's path to becoming a writer has been anything but conventional. Over the years, he's done a bit of everything--a jack of all trades you might say. He spent time in the military, the ASA (Army Security Agency, and yes, it's related to the NSA), worked in business (accounting, assistant buyer, management), taught at a secretarial college, spent time as a letter carrier for the post office, and he even mesmerized a few clients here and there as a hypnotherapist. He also spent time in the blue collar sector (building floors for mobile homes, a job retrofitting military vehicles for the army, etc.). Along the way, he also found time to get degrees (B.A. and M.A.) in English from the University of Utah and Utah State University respectively. And eventually he became a writer.
Writers who've influenced him the most are Dostoevsky, Hemingway, Raymond Chandler, and Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
