One day, while exploring the beaches of Colombia, he, by chance, befriended Marco, a former Drug transporter for the A.U.C, a Narco Para-military organization. Marco's story was so awe inspiring that Wilson, with Marco's permission, wrote the novel Pinched. Wilson currently lives in Tallahassee, FL and is pursuing his Masters degree in Marketing from Florida State University. Wilson and Marco remain great friends.

    In Faith Network Radio Show Presents: Barry Milazzo

    in Books

    Don't miss the author of All The King's Horses, Barry Milazzo, on Thursday, January 26th at 6pm EST. He joins me on In Faith Network Radio Show to discuss his amazing novel on Spiritual Growth, and overpowering faith, All The King's Horses:
    All the king’s horses wouldn’t have the slightest prayer of putting your Humpty Dumpty life back together again. You don’t need a book to tell you that. You need Jesus, the King who will use your brokenness to bring about your true purpose in this world. With a happy family and millions in assets, Barry Milazzo seemed to have it all. Like that fairytale egg, his second child, Bryson, was suddenly shattered by catastrophic brain-injury. It was predicted he would never walk or speak, and he would be virtually uneducable. An unwanted divorce resulted in his raising his children alone. Financial ruin came and he lost his family home. Shocking episodes of bullying and abuse caused his impaired son to threaten suicide. Finally, physical disease and collapse nearly ended this single father’s life. Tempted to curse God and die in the face of unbearable pain, he chose to rely fully upon God, discovering timeless Scriptural truths which are passed on to the reader in this book.
