On his retirement, William E. Thomas sat down to write a novel. After years of toil, The Cypress Branches, a 350,000 word epic, was the result.
Shortly after finishing it, he started to fall ill and was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.
It seemed that William's dream of seeing his novel published were over. But his Grandson wasn't prepared to see the story end there. Now, 15 years after it was finished, the project is underway to get The Cypress Branches into print and into the hands of readers who will love it.
