I have heard you have an usual reason for writing this book, what can you tell me about that?
I found that I had starting forgetting a lot of things from my childhood. Not just small things but big things. Unfortunately, unexplained memory loss is an
issue in my family. I wanted to set them down in an effort to remember them and, of course, a lot of these memories I wanted to share
with my wife and kids. So I decided to sit down and weave them into a story, an entertaining narative, that I hoped would entertain them. After I completed
a chapter or so, we would all sit down after dinner and I would read it to them. Their reactions were priceless. I always left them on a cliffhanger. It was so
funny and they were always excited to hear the next installment. Those are good memories in and of themselves. And they are the ones that ultimately convinced me to publish.
