about

About a decade ago, Fred Brooks was given a journal as a gift. It sat on top of his bedroom dresser for months before he decided, one spring morning, to put pen to paper. The result is this entertaining and inspiring book.

Fred’s early years were darkened by tragedy.  His twin brother died at a young age in a car accident.  His father abandoned the family and later committed suicide.  Fred grew up in poverty, raised by a single mother.

These kinds of childhood experiences often derail a person’s chances to lead a happy and fulfilled life.  But Fred was fortunate—several men entered his life and played positive roles in shaping and forming his character.  That strong foundation, along with his eternal optimism, work ethic, deep appreciation for life’s joys, and profound faith in God, enabled Fred to persevere through life’s difficulties, and achieve great success.

Extraordinary Stories from an Ordinary Man takes us through the ups and downs in the life of an ordinary man, to show us how extraordinary our lives really are.
