About the Author

Roger McEwan was lucky to be made redundant from his corporate career in 2001 when his son was one and his daughter a small bump. He started a small consulting firm, just himself, and this allowed him to truly achieve work-life balance, enabling him to spend many valuable hours with his children as they grew.His world lurched once again when his children were six and eight and he found himself a single dad sharing care of his children with his ex-wife. This book is the result of his journey as a single dad raising his two wonderful, challenging children.Roger has a PhD in management and still runs his own consulting business. Has a part-time role with the local district health board, is writing a management book with a colleague he met during his studies, is collecting material for a sequel to this book, and teaches on the Massey University MBA programme. Most importantly he is a dad, father, parent, teacher and friend to his two children now aged 17 and 15.


"The small chunk chapters range from the practical - childcare, domesticity, school, money, friends - to the more nitty gritty, dating, fashion, fitness and fatness and what to do when the kids hit puberty. McEwan bravely takes you through his life with the unabashed intention of letting his reflections bounce back to the reader, so they too can look at themselves." ;;The Manawatu Standard;"The Single Dad's Guide to the Galaxy is perfect for anyone who'd appreciate some wise advice on the reality of that most difficult of all undertakings: being a parent." North & South Magazine (Sept 2017);;I was expecting to read "The Single Dad's Guide to the Galaxy: Parenting in the Real World by Roger McEwan" within a few days but I caught myself reading a few chapters over and over because of the wealth of information resonated with me because I am also sharing the duties of raising a child under two roofs.;;Damien Black - Author of Life of a Bastard Series
