About the Author

Unintentionally, Daniel Garrison has led a bit of an adventurous life. It was never his desire to do so, as he would much prefer a more placid, settled existence, yet fate has always had other plans for him. Through the years, Daniel, who holds a degree in journalism, chronicled many of his stranger experiences, along with some of the more eccentric characters he met. Recently, he undertook a journey of a different sort-he decided to forge his stories into a book. Drifting in the Push, the first of two books in the series, is now available to booksellers worldwide. Lindsey Nelson holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in creative writing with a minor in journalism from Western State Colorado University. She also holds a Copyediting Certificate from the University of California, San Diego. She is the owner and editor at Exact Edits. http: //www.exactedits.com RoShamBo Graphic Design http: //www.go-roshambo.com/

Reviews

-Garrison, a restless college student, puts an often hilarious modern spin on On The Road in this gonzo tribute to young wanderlust and overcoming difficulties through grit, determination, and humor- - Booklife


"Garrison, a restless college student, puts an often hilarious modern spin on On The Road in this gonzo tribute to young wanderlust and overcoming difficulties through grit, determination, and humor" - Publishers Weekly

"Daniel Garrison's Drifting in the Push is a loosely organized, fast-paced memoir, tracing the author's manic, comic adventures on the road less traveled...The writing is excellent. Garrison's prose is clean, funny, and often touching. It's difficult to tell how much (if any) of the book is fiction and how much is a memoir. Doesn't matter - the stories have the authenticity one attributes to real events, and the narrative drive associated with the very best fiction." - Rabbit Hole Reviews

"As a memoir of life lived so far, Drifting in the Push is a real beauty. Well written with an underlying sense of humour, Dan Garrison's life is one that we can all relate to in one manner or another. There is nothing mundane about this work; it is full of variety, entertainment, warmth, and humour. By the final page you will discover that you have made a new friend - that of Dan Garrison." - Blue Wolf Reviews

"A memoir that reads more as fiction than reality, this adventurous trek of one young man will inspire readers to go out there and take a chance on their futures. Adventure is just around the corner if you'll only follow it!" - Tragically Dull Adventures of an Almost Librarian

"Don't think, even for a minute, that this book is boring. Every story in this book is engrossing. They are chronological stories, starting from Daniel's childhood. Even as a child he's had interesting experiences. I was constantly being amazed by the different states he's lived in and the different situations he's been put in...A sequel to this book is in the works. When it releases, I will be first in line to buy it." - This is Lit

"This memoir is a collection of funny, sometimes kind of insane stories. As Dan grows up, he faces danger, theft, and cross-country moves. His traumatic experiences make for good entertainment, although he probably didn't see them that way at the time!" - Newbery and Beyond

"I found it refreshing and light-hearted at times, in addition to down to earth and realistic. It's quite fantastical, yet honest." - The Incessant Bookworm
