Meet the Author

John Sheehan grew up in the Bronx, New York, in a neighborhood with at least one bar on every corner. His childhood was wrecked by an angry, alcoholic father, and it seemed natural to find his comfort and breathing space along the same path. But as the years went past, his “friend, John Barleycorn,” brought him erratic blackouts and terrifying hallucinations, right up to the brink of madness.

Today John Sheehan leads a normal, sober life. He credits Alcoholics Anonymous for pulling him out of the abyss, but it was his own strength, courage, and willingness to trust that made the difference.
