He married young and after finishing school, headed to California searching for an opportunity. He, after a time made a comfortable living, owning a beautiful new home, a luxurious 42 foot yacht at his dock and two new luxury cars in his garage living the ‘American Dream’ until he met a woman called Patricia who changed his life from that moment on.

“I’m thankful I wrote this book at this late time of my life, as I couldn’t have written it twenty years earlier for lacking the maturity and experience of life.” said A.J. He went on to say, “If just one reader gains from the messages and experiences contained in this book, the hours and years sacrificed, along with the tears shed will have been worth it.”
