A Happy Father's Day Indeed

Front page blurb


Last year Cole and Arden got me a gorgeous baseball glove for Father's Day. I use that glove with them all of the time, and it's one of my favorite possessions. This year they surprised me with a new laptop so I could, "Write another book". It's a pretty great laptop, and a fine gift, but it's apparently not destine to be the best surprise of my 2013 Father's Day. 

I've been giving a lot of interviews over the last few months to support my new book, and it sounds weird to say but because I don't get to see those interviews before they run, I never know what they are going to say or how the writer intends to use my answers. In short, what the reporter writes is nearly always a surprise to me.

I've been waiting for Father's Day with cautious optimism for an article to run in my hometown paper, The Bucks County Courier Times. Even at 41 years old... I was just super happy to think that my mom was going to sit down with her coffee today and see her little boy in the newspaper. What I got when I woke up today was far more amazing than I ever could have hoped for.

Besides the wonderful article, this piece also ran in two sister papers and online at I'm still waiting for confirmation from someone at home (We are on vacation) but I'm hearing that the story may have also been blurbed (See image at top) on the front page of this mornings paper! 

Happy Father's Day Indeed!

I hope that you all have a fantastic Father's Day, I want to wish you all the best. Thank you so much to Gwen Shift of the Courier for her great and touching words, to my family for being so loving and all of you for reading Arden's Day!
