Many have treated ADHD as a pandemic that sprang from nowhere, sapping the attention spans of scores of school-aged children. Nothing could be further from the truth, yet few have delved into our past to examine instances of the disorder before it was recognized by modern medicine. This humorous memoir entertains while it recounts life in the 's and 's, before anyone had ever heard of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
His take on a childhood impacted by the focus disorder and dysfunctional family is as hilarious as it is poignant, albeit not for the faint of heart. Despite home tumult and academic failure, Tomes would go on to become an award winning coach and successful teacher, providing an interesting perspective on an unlikely ascent from rural miscreant to urban legend.
Set primarily in the small towns of Northern Wisconsin, Tomes uses heavy handed humor to deliver blunt force drama drawn from his personal war on boredom. His birth to twenty-one account is broken into four key areas and the series is issued in volumes along those lines.
Born Dead on a Winter's Night
Volume 1: Home Home reads like a self-written psych report, detailing family idiosyncrasies, dalliances with girls, experimentation with alcohol and meandering through life without regard; as well as a potential road to redemption. Along the way, fish are thrown at tourists, prank calls are made, children are led astray in church, a bowling alley is defiled and socially challenged relatives are antagonized.
Nothing is sacred as Tomes spins a classic piece of humorous non-fiction with his true stories of bad behavior. In vivid detail, Tomes recounts his dysfunctional childhood, the genetic roots of his ADHD, the influence of ill behaved cousins and extended family, his parent's awkward religious beliefs, and a laundry list of bad behavior, stunts, pranks, and a life heavily influenced by a chronic intolerance of boredom.
Volume 2: School, was released in February of Volume 3: Play, will be released in May of Volume 4: Work, will be released in August of Get A Copy.

Self-sufficient in a land of rushing streams, haunted caves and deep woods. Google Rolland to see why so many readers love to read about his real-life adventures. The only adult book Love has written.
TNT is blood curdling hilarious and full of dark humor. Growing up in the Ozark Mountains in a self-sufficent family Rolland learned to write and tell stories from an old moonshiner when he help his uncle run a fishing camp during the summer. Love was born dead in the dead of winter, still as a stone.
Doc Barnes, a tall rugged-looking man with bushy white hair, worked frantically when he realized there was trouble. His white shirt covered in blood and the flickering light of a kerosene lamp added ghost-like dimension. Cold enough to see your breath, the only source of heat came from a cast iron wood-burning stove in the living room of a farm house.
Love was saved because Doc carried him outside and rolled him in snow that covered the ground from a midwinter storm. The cold caused him to take a breath and began to cry. Rolland say's he's pretty sure starting life dead has had an effect. Often, he feels, sees or thinks about something and it stalks him. Intuition has been his companion since he was a kid. Many readers say they experience the same syndrome.
