In his debut book, McGarrey shares a series of light-hearted stories about his life, including numerous mishaps and often awkward moments that readers will find amusing and fun.
“Get ready to get a good laugh and a look into some of the events in my life that helped shape me,” said McGarrey, who was in the U.S. Army infantry for almost 8 years. “I want people to think of their own memorable moments after reading my book, and see that it’s the embarrassing and sometimes hard things that give us the best memories.”
McGarrey set out to write this book to reassure others that everyone has both bad and good things that happen to them over a lifetime. But, when you compare, the bad times usually make up only about one percent compared to the joyous moments, he says.
The author includes many short stories, including tales about a fishing debacle, a construction mishap, and an embarrassing moment on the beach.
“Michael’s book will definitely bring joy and encouragement to many readers with his feel-good series of stories,” said Chris Schafer, CEO at Tactical 16 Publishing. “He helps his audience see that it’s okay to laugh at yourself in a world often filled with negativity. This is one that will be hard to stop reading once you start!”
