In 2016, the author became very seriously ill. Heart problems caused him to be forced to take some very strong, toxic, anti-arrhythmic medications. However, one small ‘benefit’ seemed to be that suddenly, he began to see faces staring at him in his shower. He thought; “Am I going crazy? Am I Mad? Is this dementia or was I hallucinating? Is this some kind of flashback to the 60’s?” After a while, he started looking forward to the hot, soothing showers and the opportunity to search for the faces, with a chance to relax and escape. Finally, he decided to attempt to write a book that appealed to the reader's imagination and possibly offered a time to forget all your troubles while enjoying using your mind in a different way. "Faces In My Shower - Vol. I" is the result of his effort.

After a cardio-ablation, and during his recovery, working on this book became the author's therapy for relaxing, and keeping his mind active. After all, you can only watch so many “Perry Masons” in a day. He would mark the faces on the tiles when he took his showers then after about 40-50 tiles were marked, he would take his camera into the shower and take photos. These were then downloaded onto his computer and he would highlight the lines that make up the faces. All that you need is a very active imagination. The author is positive that many readers will spot faces that he has not seen in his shower, and maybe more. He has yet to explore the tiles on the ceiling or on the lower 5-6 rows of each wall. He hopes that you find the hunt for the faces enjoyable and rewarding. This book can help to develop or awaken the reader’s imagination, while creating an artistic eye. Just hunting for the faces can be a challenging and relaxing experience.
