Joseph Reidy


I am a guy from a very small island off of the coast of Maine. I'm fairly funny, I wrote this book to help out people going through a brain injury. I've worked hard to recover from this brain injury, which is just what anyone doing this, going through a brain injury, needs to do. If I had known many of the things in this book beforehand, I feel as though it might have been somewhat of an easier time going through this. I have a lot of ideas of things that I would like to do, own a food truck, get into comedy, own a restaurant, seriously a lot of different ideas. If I've made it through this, I know I can do just about anything.

Smashwords Interview

What do you read for pleasure?
Personally, I like a large plethora of books. But I particularly enjoy Stephen King, James Patterson, John Grisham, as well as a smattering of other books that I don’t know the authors of.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
That would be my iPad. I also have an iPhone that has the IBooks app. I have read a lot of books at night on my phone.

That Time I Died For A lil Bit
These books are my journey into having a severe traumatic brain injury and crossing over to the other side for what felt like a couple of minutes. Then my recovery from embarking on a trip like that. Also having seizures for seven years, I'm sure others would shrug that off as nothing. But to me, it really scared me to death, I say that because that was what was happening. I like to think of it like someone in my brain flicking the lights on and off.
