A bestseller for seven months

“Tiffany Gets Her Boobs” (written under my pen name David Bawdy) has now spent seven months on the Kindle Humor and Short Story bestseller lists (free download category).   This prequel to my novel Bubba Goes for Broke earned a great endorsement from USA Today bestselling author Kristine Kathyrn Rusch:

 ” ‘Tiffany’ works beautifully, and by the end of the story, I had fallen in love with this savvy, determined, and somewhat crazy woman. Everyone who has read this story remembers it and likes it. You will too.”

Hendu’s Story now available in ebook formats

Hendu’s Story: From Dream To Reality has been released by Pentucket Publishing in all major ebook formats. It’s one of the most personal things I’ve ever written and one I’m so very proud of. 

How did the kid who was always falling down achieve his dreams of playing college hockey? How did he finish as co-captain on a team that enjoyed the best season in the program’s history?

This cult classic tells it all: part memoir, part roadmap of how to achieve a dream, and part story of a father’s love for his son.

Hendu’s Story follows the little kid with the big heart through all the tough decisions. Go to the team that always wins or the one with the best coach? Play summer hockey? Leave home for boarding school? Play it safe or roll the dice during the gut-wreching college selection process?

Hendu’s Story will make you laugh, make you think, and just maybe make you cry.

Although it’s available in six individual parts, the full collection offers the best value and represents the intended reading experience.

Part I: Beginnings
Part II: Youth Hockey
Part III: Summer Hockey
Part IV: High School
Part V: College Selection
Part VI: College
