Three years later they got married. A year after that they gave birth to their son Ty.Unfortunately their love was short-lived. It ended two years into their marriage while living in Kincardine, Ontario while Max was working under contract at the Bruce Nuclear Facility and she was home with Ty.She packed everything including Ty and moved to Oakville leaving Max in Kincardine, all alone.

Like many parents who suddenly find themselves in this position, Max was surprised when told he was not an equal parent of 1 year old Ty, but was what his divorce lawyer referred to as a “Secondary Parent”. As such, Max was not allowed to talk to Ty whenever he wanted or to see him whenever he wanted. Max had to fight to see his own son, and this took time.Without Ty in his daily life, Max couldn’t eat, sleep or work.

He was absolutely devastated. After a few days, he went to his family physician who was immediately concerned for Max’s well-being. This country doctor suggested a personal remedy of his for overcoming difficult times- he told Max to concentrate all his thoughts away from the negativity of the present to the funny, happy stories of his past. He suggested Max try to relive these memories, by recollecting them through painting, writing, songs, etc…So, Max wrote.Each day, Max concentrated on one funny, true story from his past. He would think about it for hours at a time, sometimes all day, and then would write it down.

It took 40 days for Max’s lawyer to get visitation permission for Max to visit Ty in Oakville and in that time he wrote over 30 stories. This book is the compilation of those funny, true stories, plus a few more that have happened along the way.For each eBook sold, a portion of the money goes towards the ‘Canadian Equal Parenting Council’ (CEPC), a coalition of 42 organizations across Canada which support a presumption and standard in law of equal parenting consisting of equal parenting time and equal parenting responsibility in the decision making for the child.
