PRLog - July 13, 2011 - CHANDLER, Ariz. -- Brighton Publishing LLC announced the signing of author Jim Dietz for his touching novel, "Until the Goodnight Smile" scheduled for release in early 2012.

Michael Norris is a high school Social Studies teacher in rural Kansas. He is the father of an eleven-year-old boy on the verge of puberty, and an eight year old girl still blissfully a child. But, for the last several years, one event has dominated his life more than anything else: the cancer-caused death of his wife, whom he loved more than life itself.

In “Until the Goodnight Smile,” author Jim Dietz follows in the footsteps of masters like Audrey Niffenegger (The Time Traveler’s Wife) and Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook), with his ability to weave an enchanting story around the tragic circumstance of the loss of a spouse.

With remarkable skill, Jim Dietz takes readers on a journey to spend one full day with teacher Michael Norris as he readies and delivers his children to school, struggles through his classes and the pedantic school bureaucracy, and navigates the dangerous waters of modern day children thrust too soon into the world of adults.

Yet always present, always with him in mind and spirit, guiding him through life is Norris’s wife Elizabeth—and through their relationship, this novel achieves great purpose.

“Jim Dietz is a master in the making,” said Kathie McGuire, director of Brighton Publishing. “His powerful prose captivates while his story deftly enchants the reader, keeping the pages turning. This is a romance, a tragedy, a story of a father with love that never quits.”

Jim Dietz is the author of two volumes of poetry and two young-adult science fiction novels, as well as the creator of two games on the American Civil War and the Musketeers of 16th Century France. In addition to writing, Jim is president and CEO of Jolly Roger Games and head volleyball coach at Lincoln Land Community College where he was named the 2010 MWAC Coach of the Year.  He lives in Illinois with his wife and three children.
