It took me ten years to write these books, despite having two years of graduate-level study in microbiology, a medical degree, and practice in family medicine. It started as a prescription from my neurologist to aid my traumatic brain injury. My car flew off an elevated highway with devastating consequences. I sustained four surgeries, chronic pain, but worse: A diagnosis of dementia (92% disabled both physically and mentally) and going into Alzheimer's disease. In brief, these books recount the hero's journey of a man and his dog (both heroes) falling as far as possible then struggling back to be neurotypical. I examine my own traumatic brain injury in unorthodox and amusing tales of concussion, pain, loss, divorce, homelessness, suicide, and a service dog. Chewy Napoleon Bone-A-Parte Herlihy is a direct descendent from Napoleon's royal French poodle/terrier mix. Book profits will help support homeless outreach services at Antioch Church (Dallas) and Chewy’s work with the disabled homeless and their dogs. This work is made possible by the generous shelter services of The Bridge, a homeless recovery center in Dallas, Texas.
