Andrew Barton is an ordinary man who, each weekend, stumbles into extraordinary circumstances. With a college degree in Agricultural Sciences but a job driving a forklift in a warehouse, Andrew, like many of us, finds that his release from the humdrum workweek comes through the tinkering in his garage on the weekends. Although his goals are directed toward other ends, he mistakenly travels through time, into other dimensions and even ends up taking his family and friends on a ride to a location that is the last place anyone ever wants to end up! Lines of Force will take you on adventures that you’ll never forget and want to enjoy time and time again. Let Andrew Barton take you along to unexplored territory in this book about mistakes becoming incredible exploits!

I've been around a long time. At least it seems that way to me! I've learned a lot and learn a little more each day. It seems to me that one of the things I've learned revolves around reality. We all have our own reality that we tend to mix with the actual reality around us. The realities that we create in our own minds are powerful and often inaccurate. They can cause us to believe things that either don't really exist or, at the very least, don't exist in the real world. My character, Andrew Barton, realizes this and does a very good job of explaining it in this short chapter introduction. I hope that you enjoy it and that your days will be filled with the realities that make you the happiest!
Lines of Force: The Weekend Adventures of Andrew Barton
When we expect something, our minds can convince us that we have achieved it even if, in reality, that is not the case. The reverse can also be true. If someone blindfolded you and put a piece of chocolate in your mouth, it would take you some time to figure out what it is, especially if you’ve been told that it was something different. What I’m saying is that our senses can be deceived and our minds can play along. It becomes difficult to discern what is reality and what is not even when reality is staring you right in the face and laughing at you.~ Andrew Barton
