So why do I have this interest in this reboot? I recently watched a series of reboots that were awful and didn’t seem necessary to bring back. The most recent reboot of the sitcom, Mad About You, had a significant run on TV in the 90s, and made me mad that I wasted my time watching it. I was not so impressed with what happened to the middle age Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt characters but I definitely would be interested and probably could relate more to the next stage in life of the Living single cast.

The book is a work of fiction loosely based on actual events of my life and interactions. It is not a character assassination of the dead nor is real insight into my own psyche. It is a tragic love story and a family saga imagined. It is a different interpretation of events in hopes to inspire and to entertain. But if you find a little truth in this story hopefully it will evoke change and self-growth.
Proud to have served and gratitude to all who have served.
