My first book, "Normal Is So Overrated," is a narrative non-fiction that tells the story of my survival and recovery from a ruptured cerebral aneurysm. It should be released in ebook before the end of this year.

I also have a novel in the works that I hope to have ready for publication in the spring of 2012.

Alan McDermott (Jambalian) Hi everyone, and thanks for letting me join this great group!

It's the story of how one man takes on the British government when the judicial system lets his son's killer walk free from court.

Reviews have all been positive so far, which gives me the encouragement to keep banging away at the second in the series.
