Roman Barnes lives among the homeless and next to the fortunate, at the edge of hope. Among Pigeons is his journey from rags to revelation. His story exposes dueling societies that share more than they are willing to admit. In a weak economy many people are struggling to remain afloat, just as Roman, and many are one decision from living among pigeons.

Join Us with Doctor Lawrence A. Wood is a 26 year veteran of the United States Navy. He retired at the rank of Captain and has been in the business of caring and compassion for more than thirty years, as a Physical Therapist, Ophthalmologist, and Writer.
He is the author of numerous poems, screenplays and short stories. Hi...s stage play, No Marks Just Memories, performed to sold-out audiences in Japan.
In writing Among Pigeons, Doctor Wood, remembers his childhood treatment of a neighborhood homeless man, dubbed John-the-Bum. He recalls: "We treated him with contempt and hatred and I never looked him in the eye to see his equality with me. I never looked beyond his dirty face or smell to see his heart. I deliberately made every effort to remain far enough as to not touch him. It is clear that decades later, it was he who touched me."
Doctor Wood believes Among Pigeons, will right a wrong, raise awareness about the homeless and lift humanity.
Doctor Wood lives with his wife Vanessa Wood and youngest son Seth in San Marcos, California.
