I woke up early in the morning. I was so eager to begin my day. This day, today is my birthday, and I am so excited. Yes, today, I turn the big twelve.

I brushed my teeth and washed my face. I even made my own breakfast. I was a big goy, and I wanted to start my birthday off by doing something for myself.

The school was exactly one and a quarter mile from our house. I decided to ride my bicycle.

The Raw, Bold Truth by Joan Hammersmith

banner 1.0.jpg


Title: The Raw, Bold Truth

Author: Joan Hammersmith

Release Date: 14 August 2013

Goodreads | Amazon 


When John B. died on January 26, 2001, he died sober. That was his greatest desire. In “The Raw, Bold Truth,” author Joan Hammersmith, Johnny B.’s widow, finishes the story John himself started in the late 1990s before he passed away prematurely. In this memoir, Hammersmith narrates the real story of the real Johnny B.-the man he was and the man he became.

John’s goal was to tell the story of his life: his childhood, filled with abuse, grief, and dysfunction; his struggles with mental health issues; his prison experiences; his addictions; and the journey of his recovery, including the tragic episodes of his relapses. “The Raw, Bold Truth” tells of John’s legacy as a leader, teacher, father, grandfather, friend, and husband.

Hammersmith then shares the story of her relationship with Johnny B., a multi-racial, ex-con biker who struggled to find final recovery from his past and his addictions before he took his last ride to seek his Creator. A compelling story of love and redemption, “The Raw, Bold Truth” communicates that recovery from addiction is possible, but it requires rigorous honesty-something John found only in death.

Dream Diary by Ben Sheldon

banner 1.0


Title: Dream Diary

Author: Ben Sheldon

Release Date: 26 August 2016

Goodreads | Amazon 


Ben Sheldon’s diary, which he kept over many years, takes you on a series of fascinating, fantastic, and unusual adventures that he enjoyed–or suffered through–while sleeping.

He also shares the dreams of a former roommate, Adrian, who he lived with from 1971 to 1973.

Sheldon recorded his own dreams shortly after waking up, and he’d listen to Adrian’s tales during morning chats while they were fresh in his memory. Some of the dreams are hilarious, others are disturbing, and some are downright unusual.

In one dream, Adrian is at a party when he passes Sonny and Cher having sex on top of a piano. The scene irks him so much that he says, -How could you do this, with all these people watching?- Sonny nonchalantly continues with his sex act, but they both seem bored. Cher is even chewing gum and blowing bubbles.

In another dream, the author finds himself in a drug-infested ghetto. All of a sudden, someone rushes over to him trying to give him -a fix.- He stumbles around before leaving in a hurry.

Whether you study, interpret, and evaluate dreams or want to enjoy a series of unexpected adventures, you’ll love the Dream Diary
