Dennis A. Hooker
I am now an "old man". I have been writing books since I wrote a book of Science Test Questions under a NASA Science Foundation in the late 60's. I began working with youth in trouble - emotional, educational, "spiritual". I found a unique thing - "The most important subject to a person is THEMSELVES!" That began a series of self-discovery books that combined that theme with "And where do I then fit into what the world's needs and wants". This "Me and...series became state-adopted soft-cover texts and used by over a million youth from upper elementary to college. This led to the I Am Already Successful and I Can Manage Life series. Since then evolved another 15 books - including a novel (The White Savages - Miracles of the Hawk-Cross) that, to me, is the essence of my life - the "final solution" to who I am.
In the meantime I was a Guidance Counselor, School and Private Psychologist, Hypno-therapist, Gestalt Therapist, Neuro-muscular Therapist (chuckle) boat and house builder (see my "Chainsaw-built Homes")a farmer, musician and a compulsive writer - now over 25 books. Among all this was a 1/3 century involvement with 12 Step programs - AlAnon and AA.
My last book remains to be written - "How I Died As Gracefully As I Could - While Kicking and Screaming."

Out Of The Mouths of - A RAT?
It is said, "Out of the mouths of babes.." suggesting that Truth is sometimes smuggled into our consciousness from strange and wonderful places. "Rats?" is the Year 2009 of actual/UN-edited e-mails between Dennis in Ohio and Bob in Florida. This exchange suggests that life- changing struggles often begin with nightly visits. You WILL NOT doubt now - life continues after "death".
