There's been a mystical murder at the notorious Raven's Lodge.

Four Fathers (10 Book Series)
From Book 1: “A wild, juicy history of four families whose lives converge in bucolic Barrington in the sixties, with a sly eye to the future. Laced with poetry, music, philosophical musings and baseball, it ranges from the Midwest to Texas, Hawaii, the Dominican Republic and beyond. It exposes the underpinnings of a seemingly perfect, privileged community, while it celebrates the singular landscapes and characters that existed in a special place and time.” Becky Harlan Laughlin

Four lifelong buddies ramble on. Barrington, Illinois accedes to points South, then back to Chicago. Finally, the compass tends north by northwest.

You could say Four Fathers, in each of its volumes, is about "sex, and drugs, and rock and roll." Or you could say it is about the older virtues, "wine, women, and song." Anyway you want it- you will end up humming the same happy tune.

Four Fathers is everyone’s tale even as it is unique to its characters. The bygone past is traveled without benefit of GPS. “Four Gigs” has an entirely different meaning in what is now virtual antiquity. The four fellow travelers stumble upon the raw and the cooked. The pages of the book of life form their dreams as their dreams form them. Missteps mark the way; but, after all, that is what the ride is all about.

Joe Cebellum, Fred Etheridge, Tommy Wanderby, and Sam Thorn, step into the tumult to find the sybaritic and the kinesthetic. Confusion finds comfort from the storm disproving the notion you can’t find your way home.

Volume One- “For Whom the Book Tells” - traces the early influences of nature and nurture. Exploration and wonder are the watchwords. This Volume leaves the four lifelong friends upon a precipice of the turmoil of the times.

The complete series, all 10 Four Fathers Volumes- available now.

The Lost Generation is reborn amidst a swirl in the ‘60s. The four friends find more than a little help. The adventure is replete while not yet culminated. Adventure looms deep and weaves a magic spell.

“It’s only words and pages-with shadowy reminiscence, and I like it.” James Kampert

"The writing is sharp and unpretentiously thoughtful, and since each of the main characters finds solace in companionship, this is an affecting literary depiction of the comforting power of friendship. Each of the stories can be read on its own, but taken together, they make a coherent, thematic whole, skillfully produced. An endearing collection that deftly captures the need for youthful fellowship." -Kirkus Reviews

"Verdict: With nary a dull moment, Scott Semegran's BOYS features short stories filled with unexpected nuances that draws readers right into the heart of his well-developed characters." --IndieReader. 5 Stars. IR Approved.

These are the stories of three boys living in Texas: one growing up, one dreaming, and one fighting to stay alive in the face of destitution and adversity. There's second-grader William, a shy yet imaginative boy who schemes about how to get back at his school-yard bully, Randy. Then there's Sam, a 15-year-old boy who dreams of getting a 1980 Mazda RX-7 for his sixteenth birthday but has to work at a Greek restaurant to fund his dream. Finally, there's Seff, a 21-year-old on the brink of manhood, trying to survive along with his roommate, working as waiters and barely making ends meet. These three stories are told with heart, humor, and an uncompromising look at what it meant to grow up in Texas during the 1980s and 1990s.

The writing of Scott Semegran has been praised by bestselling author / Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Davy Rothbart as "Hilarious, poignant, and twisted." Award-winning cartoonist Emily Flake described the fiction of Scott Semegran as "Funny, sweet, dark, and sad, Scott Semegran's stories create a wholly convincing world of love, loss, and fear. His light touch with heavy subjects is a gift, and his forays into silliness are a delight."

Scott Semegran lives in Austin, Texas with his wife, four kids, two cats, and a dog. He graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in English. He is a cartoonist and a writer. He can also bend metal with his mind and run really fast, if chased by a pack of wolves. His comic strips have appeared in the following newspapers: The Austin Student, The Funny Times, The Austin American-Statesman, Rocky Mountain Bullhorn, Seven Days, The University of Texas at Dallas Mercury, and The North Austin Bee. His short story "That Little Devil (Que Un Diablito)" appeared in the The Next One Literary Journal from the Texas Tech University Honors College. He is a Kindle bestselling author. Other novels and books by Scott Semegran include The Meteoric Rise of Simon Burchwood, Modicum, The Spectacular Simon Burchwood, and Mr. Grieves the Book.
