Gregory Shultz is the author of the novel Return To Middle C, which is available in electronic book format from Amazon.com (Kindle eBook) and from BN.com (Barnes & Noble Nook Book). Amazon also sells this title in paperback. Shultz has lived in Central Florida for the past 23 years. Though he's lived all over the country and was born on the other side of the planet (in Okinawa), Shultz considers himself a Florida native. He can't remember living anywhere else (a testament to the healing powers of vodka and Grand Marnier). When not engaged in the pursuit of literary greatness, Shultz can be found dodging unleashed pit bulls and the occasional snake while running the four-mile route that helps ward off unsightly belly fat. Shultz is a graduate of the University of Central Florida. Though he originally majored in journalism, he somehow ended up with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. Not a good degree for anyone allergic to suit and tie.
A famous rock musician's son has been missing for six years. Ben Davenport now resides in Orlando, Florida, the city where he last saw his then five-year-old child. Having lost all hope of ever finding him following a four-year global search, Ben has lived in seclusion for the past two years. But a beautiful and fiery young lady has moved into the only other house in his cul-de-sac. Delora Calatrava doesn't know who Ben really is, but she is soon able to discern that he long ago lost everything important to him. Whatever he's lost, Delora is determined to help him get it back. Return To Middle C is a story about the power of love, hope, and unwavering faith.
Return To Middle C is first and foremost a novel about a father's undying love for his only son, a five-year-old who has been kidnapped by the father's wife. Perhaps more central to the book's theme, however, is how music truly can save one's mortal soul. Return To Middle C certainly has its dark moments, but overall it is an uplifting book about a man's spiritual reawakening and his fierce battle to take back all he has lost.
