NOT ONE MORE: An American Primal Scream by D. McClain King

NOT ONE MORE was written shortly after the COVENANT SCHOOL shooting in Nashville last March. It is described by the author as the primal scream of millions of Americans repulsed by the frequency of mass shootings. The novella explores the heartache of loss, the journey to healing, and the moral struggle to overcome a primal and deadly impulse for retribution. The day that Coach Daniel Kane had to identify the gruesome remains of his eight-year-old granddaughter; he became radicalized. Marnie McKay was murdered by an AR-15 in her third-grade classroom. Her death required retribution, and those responsible for legalizing the sale of weapons of war to the public would now have their own offspring in the crosshairs of an unlikely cell of determined assassins.

Dennis King (D. McClain King) is a retired educator and a former high school coach. He taught English in both Pennsylvania and Tennessee during his forty-two-year career in public education. The author spent 32 years in Nashville trying to write the perfect country song. To this day he claims to be Nashville’s most “unsung” songwriter – literally.
