Harold's Will
by Greg Royer

Due to a series of bad decisions, Harold finds himself fighting to save his legacy and his life. Winning either fight seems unlikely. The collision of two separate events from Harold’s past is turning his life upside down: Harold is quickly approaching the age at which his father dropped dead, right in front of him, from a deadly condition that Harold has inherited; and a childhood friend who recently died by suicide because, in Harold’s mind, of a horrible mistake Harold made when they were fourteen. Unwilling to confront his past or his mortality, Harold decides to fix the future. But his efforts to extend his control beyond the grave only make things worse, alienating friends and family. His irrational behaviour finally puts his life at risk when he finds himself lost in the Canadian Rockies in the dead of winter. In the pit of his despair, Harold hears a voice in the darkness that describes itself as a spirit named Herman. A fan of Miley Cyrus, bad jokes, and of Harold himself, Herman appears to hold a very unusual insight into the universe and the very reason for our existence. While Herman’s story stretches Harold’s imagination, it may be exactly what he needs to hear. As he struggles to deal with his fear and guilt, Harold must trust the disembodied voice of Herman and realize the implications of what he’s done. But will he survive long enough to fix the mess he’s created?

Greg Royer spent close to fifty years in executive positions at several organizations, including an international hotel business he built with his brothers over four decades. In a significant departure from his previous work experience, Greg’s last job was as the COO of the Calgary Zoo, a charity, and a globally recognized wildlife conservation organization. As he approached his seventieth birthday, he decided that it was a perfect time to try and write the story about his thoughts on the universe and our place in it. Harold’s Will is Greg’s debut novel. He resides in Calgary, Alberta with his wife Cindy.
