About the book

Everyone learns to accept life’s twists and turns as they live out the daily rituals of their lives.  But what happens when an event completely alters one’s understanding of everything about the world in which they live, including who they are?  Forbidden Roots brings the audience into the author’s inner most thoughts as he sees his foundation swept away with a simple slip of the tongue at the age of 41 while attending a large family gathering with his children and wife.  This gripping true story about suddenly being unexpectedly thrust into the world of adoption explores the expected and the unexpected as the author seeks to understand his new identity and re-frame his past. 

 Things like this aren’t supposed to happen, but they do.  From being dealt with the unexpected to dealing out the unexpected, ride along with the author on his journey of twists, turns and bomb shells.
