About The Author

This is my first book and a international book award finalist.I wrote about my life. From growing up with an alcoholic mother who tried to kill me before I was even born. To being put in a Catholic orphanage when I was four. Later our family became freaking Jehovah Witnesses, which was difficult because I am Totally gay. I explain what it was like to get married to a woman and have a son to only end in divorce and fighting in court for years just to be able to see him. I explain what it was like coming out and then loosing friends, family and being tossed out of a religion. A religion that controlled my entire life up until coming out. Then I tried to kill myself. I had many disastrous relationships. I am brutally honest and I hold back nothing. Not recommended for anyone under eighteen. Sorry kid .
