MIDDLEBORO GAZETTE April 9, 2009 – Decisions, a newly published novel written by Shaun Priest, has all the makings for a story that local residents could find interesting. Shaun was not a stranger to the business end of writing, though. He had watched his father, Steve Priest, go through the process several times. Steve’s latest book, Outdoor Enthusiast: Never Say ‘I Wish I Had”, includes as the subtitle his philosophy on life. Steve said he believes that going on outdoor adventures with his sons Shaun and Tim helped them to bond beyond the traditional roles of father and son. “In the wilderness you have to depend on each other working as a team, and certainly as an equal partner when danger is imminent,” he said. Shaun’s book Decisions is available through his website, www.shaunpriest.com and on www.Amazon.com. View the Full article at, Writing career is in the family .
