ABOUT THE AUTHOR:  With twenty years law-enforcement, policing and investigative experience, Jeff W. Goodwin is the Author of Alexander’s Journey: Dum Spiro Spero.  Born in Yorkshire, England and having lived in Cumbria and Warwickshire, Jeff, his wife and two children now spend time between the United Kingdom and the Mid-West United States.  With a keen interest in history, theology and spirituality as well as being a student of martial arts since 1993, Jeff is passionate about the European and Japanese Sword.  He also shares a love for nature and wild places with his son Alexander.

ABOUT THE NEW BOOK:  Alexander's Journey: Dum Spiro Spero is a Book and Documentary DVD (including Digital Download), ISBN 9780999116401.  This is a story of a young boy's courage and positivity and a family's reluctance to accept the choices given to them.  A story of good people coming together in bad circumstances and how one small boy who loves owls and cares more for others than himself won the hearts of thousands of people all over the world.  The story tells of triumph over adversity, the kindness of strangers and how life's mosaic comes together when all, including faith, appears lost.

Alexander Goodwin is a young British boy who has a passion for nature, science and conservation.  Christmas 2015 at just eight years of age he began struggling with constant leg pain.  He was misdiagnosed for six months until finally being told he had a rare form of cancer of the pelvis and right leg.  By that time, in constant pain and deteriorating rapidly, Alexander was confined to a wheelchair.  Being informed in October 2016 by Doctors in England that he may have just months to live and any surgery would reduce the quality of his time left, his father Jeff W. Goodwin, a Police Officer in the U.K reached out to his brothers in blue across the Atlantic.  After just a few weeks the family found themselves in America's mid-west receiving treatment from a collaboration of specialists from hospitals in two states as well as support from strangers that would create profound bonds of friendship.

This is Alexander's journey through darkness into light.
