        Within You   Without You 

                                                                 a novel

“Kudos to Mr. Ramsey for the hours of entertainment he brought me,           meaningful entertainment.”

“…strange, terrifically original.”

“A fun and twisty-turny, worthwhile story.”

“Expect to be surprised by something new.”

Davis and Becca first meet in the latrine lines at Woodstock, initiating a blissful, music-fueled infatuation until they get separated. Their paths cross again on that tragic day in Ohio on the Kent State campus, him with an M-1, her with a bullhorn. Follow their practical, existential and metaphysical growth as they face challenges along the way. 

This is a coming of age saga not just of individuals, but a culture: historical--not boringly--but fun, like Woodstock, and tragic, like Kent State--and then beyond.

It explores love and sex. It’s passionate, even prurient.

It’s real, but unreal, dancing on the “edges” of perception and altered states, blurring the languages of music and art in all of their frustrations and glories.

It’s about a quest for understanding our existence and how often we fall short of that.

Except in those divine moments we don’t.

​You’ll see yourself in the characters, not wanting the story to end and when it does, you’ll want more…
