John Tolliver's debut novel The Reflection of Innocence was written long ago in his head. This story was burning to get out, and this year John decided to give it birth, putting words to paper hoping others might relate to it (and hopefully enjoy).
After 6 years in the Navy on submarines (4 years serving aboard the fast attack submarine USS Jacksonville SSN-699) followed by a 30+ year career in the nuclear chemistry field, John splits his time volunteering his services as a mediator and arbitrator in the New York courts, and working with animal rescue.
The Reflection of Innocence
John Calabrace’s life has been in havoc since he was six years old. He spends his life fighting through a flood of memories. The only problem is, the memories are not always his own.
The second he touches another person, he knows every mundane detail of their lives-details that, try as he might, he can never forget.
Overwhelmed to the point of forced isolation, John quickly decides that his ‘gift’ is actually a curse. He tries to put it to good use, serving his country onboard the quiet solitude of a nuclear submarine. That relative peace is interrupted after being recruited into a world to unlock other government’s secrets.
