Aug 31st 1971, twenty days before my 5th birthday, my mother was killed and my father went to prison for the crime. From that day until I was 16, I was in and around the care system, social workers, temporary care, foster care, and eventually being adopted by an aunt, my fathers sister! Needless to say, that did not work out at all, and I ended up in full time care again until I turned 16.
I gravitated toward the older boys, and I met some truly remarkable individuals, risk takers, anti-establishment, dangerous and exciting people, some of who are now long dead, and some who I still meet up with from time to time, to chew the fat with.
Most of the plots and stories in ADBSC? are true occurrences, some expanded on for dramatic effect, some told as it actually was.
The finished story took me over ten years to get done, fitting past memories together and into a story that could become a readable adventure.
