"Ghosts of Presidents Past - A Reckoning" serves as a metaphor for the chaos in American politics from 2015 -2020. The work combines historical fiction with political parody and humor.




Normally we don't see ghosts and phantoms except on Halloween when trick-or-treaters knock on front doors. If Halloween in government existed, how might twenty-three former US presidents, beginning with George Washington, respond to the siren call to visit a president who ignores the Constitution and suppresses and manipulates information for political gain?

What if that president disrespected his obligations to the Nation's revered institutions and the American public? What if he lacked moral fiber and used the office for personal gain? What if he had attained the highest office in the land through unscrupulous means? What if his ego drove him to manipulate the truth to enhance his image? What if he bullied his opponents and called them sophomoric names? What if he alienated friends and stalwart allies?

In "Ghosts of Presidents Past," President Daniel Hands violates the public trust. He desecrates the Oval Office so egregiously that past occupants return to confront him. What could they say to POTUS that might reform him? During their journey, each shares some relevant success and regrets while in office.




"Ghosts of Presidents Past - A Reckoning" encapsulates many of the more shocking public utterances and events over the last several years where each new one often eclipses its predecessor.




"Ghosts" will entertain readers who enjoy presidential history. The visiting presidents bring some surprises and share some little known or forgotten moments in their lives. The book will speak primarily to moderate Republicans, Democrats, and Independents.




Charles Dickens's "A Christmas Carol" provided the inspiration for this book. And like his work, it is political satire and a statement of the times.
