Read an Excerpt

Michael R.
Goshen, Indiana

I was born and raised in a town in Indiana named Goshen. I have one brother and one sister, both younger than me. We grew up in a home that was very confusing. I did not understand at the time I was a child why my parents did what they did. They very well knew how to act like the best Hollywood actors, but were never professional actors. My father was a construction worker. He brought back pretty good dough. We were never needy. When he came home though he was tired, very tired and he spent not much time with us (his children). Every now and then he would take us to the park and sometimes to exciting places such as: zoos, museums, sporting games, and sometimes the theatre. My mother on the other hand worked part time as a seamstress. She was home more often and she would take us out more often than our father. The only thing that had me; that had all of us confused was there constant change in characters. After living with them for some time you just got used to the routine. On Friday and Saturday nights we were left home alone. At first, I wasn’t sure where my parents were going, but as soon as I reached an age where I could understand; it was clear. Not knowing exactly, but I knew it was a bar or club of the sorts. They came home drunk and sometimes high.
