After a long hard road of writing, editing, proofing and editing again; the trilogy outlining my decline (Channel of the Broken Gun), the dream world of active addiction (Angst), and the beginning of my recovery process (Head) are complete and published. To my surprise and great honor, an instructor at the University of Calgary read 'Channel of the Broken Gun' and has placed this book on the reading list for her Spring 2010 Introduction to Sociology course at the same university. I am very grateful to her for using my book and I hope that somehow someone can gain something from the material contained therein. I want to say thank you to her in as public a forum as possible, as well as thank my editor/proofer, and all of the friends who I did not know I had, who are spreading the word about my books. Thank you all for being a part of my life.
