"What Happened to the Girl I Married?" – One man’s journey into his wife’s life at home self published by Michael Miller

What Happened to the Girl I Married? is released by Dog Ear Publishing author Michael Miller

“What does she do all day?” That was the question Michael Miller and his fraternity brothers at work often asked themselves about their stay-at-home wives. Their ignorance about what seemed like a simpler life at home shielded them from seeing or hearing the realities of it. Embarking on a quest to find the girl he married – lost in that life – Miller finds out the hard way just how very wrong they had been.

In his new book
What Happened to the Girl I Married?, Michael Miller steps out of his corporate job and into his wife’s uncomfortable shoes at home. With no staff or administrative assistants to support him, Miller’s “ah hah moments” begin on day one and become more profound with each step down the path. Through his journey, Miller offers a new found appreciation for the tireless efforts of stay-at-home Moms and clues as to why women might lose themselves in the job. For the men they married, Miller lets them connect with his evolution through humor, man-isms and motivations for change that are hard to resist.

What Happened to the Girl I Married? is an honest and enlightening love story that’s funny and thought-provoking throughout. The story’s messages help heal old wounds and offer both partners a language to get back on a loving path together – and stay on it.

Two new books tell the story of a young man trying to make his way through the Sixties

Author John Morabito releases two new self published books – The Lower Farm and The Upper Lake.

The sixties were a time of great social changes. Young people rose up to protest the Vietnam War and to challenge the establishment in general. Hippies were going barefoot and eating health food while taking all kinds of mind altering drugs. It is against this backdrop that we meet young Johnny Greeneyes, a young drifter who is heading south towards New Mexico from San Francisco to make a new life for himself.

In The Lower Farm by author John J. Morabito, we meet the cast of interesting characters that drift in and out of Greeneyes’ life during his travels. One night Greeneyes sleeps in the “cardboard hotel” next to a homeless man, another night he shares the bed of a beautiful and successful woman, he even spends a night in jail accused of a rape he did not commit. As Greeneyes heads towards his destination “The Lower Farm,” a hippie commune, he finds himself struggling with the label “hippie” and all it entails. Ultimately the tensions between locals and the hippie community will come to a head and Greeneyes lands in jail again accused of murder.

In the second novel from author John J. Morabito, The Upper Lake, the story of Greeneyes continues. The year is 1969 and Greeneyes has returned to San Francisco and works unloading cargo ships. When he loses his job he scours the want ads and finds an employment opportunity up north in Mendocino County. As he hitchhikes his way up north, he meets an interesting young man with a guitar named Buckwheat. The two become friends and Buckwheat astounds Greeneyes with his gift for music. Together the two men hitchhike up to The Upper Lake where they meet a wide array of other drifters. Life is serene and relaxing in this remarkable forest haven but Greeneyes cannot understand what secrets are haunting his friend Buckwheat.

The Upper Lake is a story of adventure, friendship and music. The drug scene has spread out even more and young people everywhere find themselves dependent on mind altering drugs. When Buckwheat confides in his friend Greeneyes, the two friends share a bond that will last a lifetime. Eventually each will find the freedom he seeks.

The Upper Lake and The Lower Farm are compelling stories set in one of the country’s most infamous eras.
