Product Description
Owen Fiddler wants to tell you his story. (Everyone sing along to the tune of the Beatles’ “Nowhere Man”)

Has a selfish point of view, why he’s such a fool, no clue. Isn’t he a bit like me and you? Owen, man, please listen. You don’t know what you’re missing. Owen, man, your world is at your command!

He’s no role model for you or your kids, but reading his story will learn ya a thing or two, and that’s a fact. This is an entertaining, thought-provoking, humorous and spiritually insightful book which will surely have you thinking about your own life.

**** Four Stars. “I heartily recommend reading Owen Fiddler for a spiritual perspective on life that will cause you to think about your own actions and behavior. Whether or not you believe in God, a higher being, heaven, law of attraction, or any type of life after death, you will walk away from this novel having at least been inspired to glimpse the possibility that there is more to life than a simple daily existence. ” -Lisa Haselton, award winning writer/editor/book reviewer

I Romanced the Stone (Memoirs of a Recovering Hippie) – Marvin’s first book – click on the title or the book cover image to get your copy today!

Product Description
When you think of a crack-head, what kind of picture comes to mind? A stupid teenager, with little, or no education? A prostitute? A smack-talking, ghetto-born African-American? Or, maybe, a misfit Caucasion dropout, from a broken home, with an alcoholic, abusive, absentee father? Crack-heads are street-walking, panhandling, hustling, poorly dressed, teeth missing, gaunt, thin, useless, and dangerous looking kinds of people, that you’d never invite over to dinner, right?

Well, guess again, because the author of these memoirs is an educated, articulate and thoughtful, formerly successful family and businessman, a grandfather, who owns expensive suits, always knows how to appear well groomed, and knows which fork is used when, at the gourmet banquets of the upper middle class. “I Romanced the Stone” observes, discusses, and exposes fundamental tendencies of addiction in our society, and weaves these general themes throughout the personal story of the author’s journey. The reader comes to understand that drug addiction is not some exclusive disease of the poor, or the uneducated, or the social castaways of our world; it is an insatiable and insidious ghost, shadowing anyone, of any walk of life, from any economic or social environment. It can appear as a false god, “the good life”, and then devour you as “the grim reaper” is revealed bewilderingly to you, as your new slave master. The book tells how the author was rehabilitated, cured, and had his life and soul spared, through love and help from family, and most significantly, through a powerful spiritual experience. It is an inspiring, yet fearsomely awesome story, sending a message of hope, and advisement.

    I’ve read all three books and highly recommend them! Owen Fiddler I actually read front to back twice – it’s that good.
