Following the Fire:

From setting a fire in a hollow tree stump as a child visiting his grandparents in Greece, to taking the heat from a bully, and getting burned by a drug deal gone bad, Bill goes from one hot spot to another. Follow the trail of fire as Bill tells of growing up in a traditional Greek family transplanted to Canada, and feeling the searing pain of his father’s disappointment. But his burning desire to find God is not easily quenched. Now a new passion flames, and Bill invites his readers to join him as he follows the fire.
