About the Author

Mr. Smith is a graduate of Bowling Green State University, where he studied psychology, philosophy and religion. He began a business career in New York City in 1969 with a bright future looming on the horizon until a flaw in genetics took him on a bumpy ride down the road of panic disorder and alcoholism. THE ROAD TO FORT WORTH was born out of his deep sense of gratitude for his recovery and a desire to share his experience, strength and hope with others affected by co-existing disorders. http://panicdisorderandalcoholismrecovery.com/

Michael Smith's book The Road To Fort Worth is an inspirational trip down the author's own road to hell then freedom. As a sufferer of panic disorder myself, I know how hard it is to overcome this. Alcohol can certainly calm the nerves but, as Mr. Smith soon found out, it can lead to problems of its own. Not until he's battling alcoholism and panic disorder does he wake up and realize there has to be help out there for him. Though true help was a long time coming.

No matter where he was directed it just seemed to make matters worse or only helped for so long before he started the downward spiral again. Would nobody truly understand what he was going through and help him rather than masking his problems with prescription drugs, shoving him from one form of treatment to another, all with no positive result?

In the end this is a book about hope, about never giving up on yourself no matter how bleak the present and future may seem. It's a book that instills the comfort and reality that miracles do happen.

In a universe of probabilities, somewhere, out there, it's possible for a Jack, our hero, to journey on THE ROAD TO FORT WORTH, and make it there alive.

In our world, faced by insane odds, deranged and terrified, volunteering for every narcissistic indulgence and masochistic self-slaughter imaginable, it's highly unlikely to happen. Further, in our world, livers are not designed to survive such brutal torture.

Fortunately, for us, and most importantly, for himself, Michael Jackson Smith defied the odds and somehow maintained breathing in and out.

There are some novels that distract you for an evening and are then forgotten. THE ROAD TO FORT WORTH does not belong in that class of books. It gets inside you because it's the real deal. This is our life, folks, not always fluffy bunnies and technicolor ponies. This is real life, where we suffer, explore, rub ourselves raw, cater to every whim, then pay the price for our appetites.

I'm thankful that Mr. Smith had the courage, the fortitude, the heart, to write THE ROAD TO FORT WORTH. This novel is embodied compassion, compassion for self, and compassion for a hurting world.
