Starting Description

In 1990 I slept in my car for two nights, and it was not because I enjoyed camping out! I've read a sizable bookshelf of success stories yet believed "it" could never happen to me. Well, "it" HAS happened to me, so I've written my story for YOU, to tell YOU that "it" can happen to YOU too!

Ending Description

Well, the end hasn't been written yet. The book story ends in 2009 with me enjoying a happy life, great marriage, and a successful business of my own. The story does need to be updated for the past 10 years, but I've traveled a great "distance" since being suicidal in 1993
