The character’s relationship with women especially the dealings with his Psychiatrist and his Mother, really allows the reader to understand the emotions built up within Billy’s heart and his connection with his pets illustrates his bond and longing for family.

Editorial Reviews

Coy Brantley-Curry
Mike, I Read the book and found it fascinating and profound. It also had me reflecting on our history as family and friends as I crappled to make connections to the compelling storylines you described as loosely based on your life. I am impressed with your ability to depict known characters with truth, dignity and respect ficticiously to the point that I am not certain which is which. I wish there were more to read! I wlll be returning to Jersey at the beginning of March.

"Clipped Wings, They Do Fly" Great Job Michael!
I must tell you I can not put this book down. The creativity within the powerful graphic design that drape the pages of this book speaks life, love, freedom, destiny...and more books. I am very impressed with your creative talent to engage and capture your reader/audience right away and keep you handing on every word. Your insight to deliver, your unique way of expressing the internal/external emotions of your characters was magnificent.
