Local writer Lane Orsak is a warm, gregarious guy who knows everyone by name at his favorite Starbucks in the Westbank Market. This camaraderie led him to the topic of his sixth, recently published book, “Dylan’s Divide.”

It’s the story of a character named Dylan Griffith, a Texan who joins the Army to serve his country in Afghanistan and returns questioning the value of his mission and course of his life.
