Dec. 6, 2010 - PRLog -- Gene Cartwright has been called one of the most gifted, insightful, though not yet widely known literary voices to come along in decades. His works clearly defy stereotype and rigid genre classification. That fact only adds to his appeal.

The question so often asked is: "How can one person have such broad empathy, insight, and range despite the age, gender, ethnicity or background of the characters he so deftly creates?"

Gene Cartwright first novel, “I Never Played Catch With My Father,” created a huge stir in the publishing world when it debuted several years ago, and earned him an Oprah appearance.

Cartwright’s second, “Half Moon, Full Heart” has been called the best real love-story written in the past half-century. It has been described as “Romeo and Juliet” find “Bridges of Madison County” on “Cold Mountain.”

His third, “A Family Gathering,” was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 2007. This family saga garnered Gene the praise of Emmy-Award, winning, Oscar nominated icon Cicely Tyson who called it the most moving and powerful novel she had read since Alex Haley’s “Roots.” Ms. Tyson has already "laid claim" to a role as her favorite character in the book.

"The Widowmaker", Gene’s fourth novel, written as Michael Manstar for the John Roméo series, displays his unique versatility. This police/psycho-thriller takes the reader on a ride so realistic; it has reportedly caused some readers to alter their lifestyle, and behavior regarding monogamy. To understand why, watch the book-trailer on or YouTube, and read the book for yourself.

Available in Softcover and e-book.
