Legacy: A Father’s Story


One night while tucking my nine-year-old son into bed, he asked me in his innocent voice, “Why didn’t you know that your dad was going to die?”

“I…I was only thirteen,” I replied while holding back my tears.
“I didn’t know that my time with him would be so short.”

“Well, I bet he had lots of great stories,” he said with a warm smile.
“I really wish I knew him.”

“Me too…me too.”


If I could go back in time and travel alongside my father’s life journey, then I’d truly know the man I called, Dad…and the man my son would have called Grandpa. That’s how the BioNovel idea was born.

  • “I wanted something for my family to remember me by. I never thought I’d do something like this and he made it so palatable for me. If I wanted to do a BioNovel again, I’d certainly call him because he’s just so sensitive, kind, interesting and interested. He captured me and my life so well.”
