Sample Book Insights: #1 I had a haircut at school, after which my father began teaching me basic chores, such as bringing wood and coal in for the fire, starting the fire, and setting the table. I felt a bit safer after that. #2 I had to hide the fact that I was looking for my father. I didn’t want him to know that I was afraid of him. #3 I had to get away from him. His anger was terrifying. I was being dragged all over the house, from the kitchen to the shed where we kept our bikes. #4 I was so hysterical when my father cut my hair that I wanted to die. I cried all night, and the next morning my eyes were so red and puffy they were almost closed. I told my teachers I had knocked over a jar of creosote and some had gone in my eyes.
Download or read book Not My Father s Footsteps written by Bryan Dean and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2005 with total page 218 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There are several thousand, if not millions of married men who are in the closet today. For the majority of these men, dating, marriage, family and careers have kept them there. Fears of separation from family, loss of friends, and loss of job are those things which cause them to hide behind the mask of heterosexual male. These men had little if no opportunity to explore this after adolescence. Many lived in small towns across the country. They have lived with fear, anxiety and guilt. Many successfully hid it from their wives. Some did not. The evolution of the Internet opened many doors for these men. Statistics prove that coming out usually ends in divorce. Not My Father's Footsteps takes a look at one such journey...an odyssey that in less than a year took him from inside the closet to a new life outside. It is a journey of love and torment, and finding love again. It is the story of seedy spas and confinement in the psychiatric ward for a brief time. By going back to his roots, he has been able to come out of his darkness and into the light of being a gay man.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Writing has taken over my life.. in a good way. My thoughts continually are geared towards my next song. Sometimes I get a few lines in my head when I am driving and I have to pull over the car and write them down! No matter where I am, I get the urge to write. I could be talking to a neighbor, or be in the middle of mass at church and a word or phrase will pop into my head and whoa! -a new song is born! More than anything I love, love, love, the peace of mind songwriting allows me to have. Most of my lyrics take me 15 to 30 minutes to write. There was a time when I was writing 6-8 lyrics in a day. Sometimes I would sit there and stare at my pencil asking why did you stop? I swear at times the pencil kept moving like I wasnt even thinking of what to write. This is my first edition. I hope to continue with future editions as I am still writing new songs everyday. Someday I hope to put my lyrics to my own music and I recently started taking piano lessons. Hey, we all know life is a learning process; a learning curve, we need to experience the turns with the ride! I wish you all success with this book and look forward to seeing some of you with me when it comes to award times!
