Local author shares his book goal completed

From Phillip Wood Coffey

"Fancy Me-Writing a Book: A Journey to Find Peace and Tranquility" begins with a tragedy and ends with expressing what I have learned on my journey.

Within the body of my book are my salutes to my family, my favorite people, who taught me how to live, which includes primarily: Bottom Rung Educators, Combat War Heroes, and just everyday people.

Within the pages is my attempt of addressing the "deplorable" to the opposite end of the spectrum that gives of themselves, often.

Some of my stories are of kinfolk long gone from my youth that I highly respected because they had exceedingly many more difficulties than we who are now living, but with faith, hope and love they overcame much adversity.

By the end of the book the writer has learned to accept people and love to all.
