Courage, Redemption and Overcoming Challenges are Three of the Overriding Themes in a New Novel by Paul Lipton

12.19.18 | Permalink

Paul Lipton, RKC’s Director of Professionalism, Career and Skill Development, has written his second book, In These Five Breaths. In the novel, a good man, devoted husband and father faces the end of his life after a tragic car accident. As his pulse slows, so does time. Each breath takes on a life of its own and takes us back through years of the challenges in his and other family and friends' lives. Paul talks about his inspiration for the novel and his hope for people who read it.

"After losing a dear friend and my wife going through a serious illness and surgery which she came through well, I sat down about two weeks later and began writing,” he explained.

“While I was writing the book, the word that kept coming into my mind was courage. Life requires courage. We’re all faced with challenges of one sort or another—physical, emotional, business, family. To live a full and complete life, we must have the courage to overcome the obstacles we face,” he said. “It was very emotional to write the book and it takes the reader through their own journey through the times of their life. I hope that it helps people face their obstacles and live life to its fullest. In the end, we each have to come to terms with our choices and their consequences.”
