About the Book

When Scott returned home after spending all summer working in New York, where he learned the ways of men and what they expected of him, he felt different. He realized he wasn’t the same person he was in June. He was very confident, and his attitude toward his peers was “I’m someone to be reckoned with.” This, of course, caused problems with them, as well as with his teachers. So began the worst four months of his young life.

About the Author

While growing up in Southern California he learned to love the hot rod scene and became part of it. His first car was a 32 Ford three window with a 54 Oldsmobile engine, which he was forever working on. When he went into the Navy, he found some buddies of like mind and went to work on a 57 Chevy to cruise in when their ship was in port. After serving six years in the Navy and being married with one child, he became a police officer and along with his hot rods he also taught boxing through the Police Athletic League (PAL). Then the lore of Southern California called, he and his family headed west. Life was good and as his four children grew so did the desire to build fast cars and race them. As with all good things this too ended when two of his sons went to war, while they were gone things sort of stopped. Then his granddaughter suggested that he should write about all the things he'd done and seen. So, it began. He wrote about the things he knew best, life in the fast lane.
