What people are saying:
“5 STARS! A MUST READ!
“5 stars, Excellent book! “Savvy Stories” should be on everyone’s “must read” list.”
Susan B., Columbus, Ohio

“REFRESHING AND WITTY”
“Savvy Stories is a refreshing and witty view from a first time 40 something father as initially shared via his “play by play” Facebook posts. Dan has such a wonderful way of engaging us with his “Mr. Mom” Savvy experiences, trials, fears and faith through little Savvy’s LQTS (Long QT Syndrome). You’ll be engaged through each page!
Greg C., Hamilton, Ohio

“HEARTWARMING HUMOR”
“I have been a fan of Dan’s work for many years, and I am so happy that this book is now available for the world to enjoy his insight and heartwarming humor.”
Catacomber, actual Amazon review

“THE HEART OF A FATHER”
Dan, your writing puts you right in the room with you and your girls. I am always completely impressed how you are consistently attentive to and fascinated with your child without turning her into your extended ego. The book isn’t about Savvy. It’s about heart of a father.
Lilia M., Irving, Texas:

“FANTASTIC!”
“I have read it, and it’s fantastic! I am coming to Savvy’s book signing and I want her hand print to be in red white and blue.”
John L., Columbus, Ohio

“FUN TO READ”
It was so much fun to read the escapades of a little through Dan’s eyes. I love his perspective and how much he is enjoying his daughter. What a memory to leave for your child.
Swimgram, actual Amazon review

“MANY PUBLIC SELF LAUGHS”
“I use to read Savvy Stories when I am out and about and have a few minutes to kill. You have been part of many public self laughs and weird stares. For that, I thank you!! Looking forward to many more.”
Stephanie S., Springfield, Missouri

“SIMPLY FANTASTIC”
“I read it from start to finish pretty much in one sitting….and was eager for more. It was simply fantastic!”

Summary:

Imagine a hospital room where a woman is about to give birth: nurses are hurriedly coming and going, machines are going beep, beep, beep, a doctor checks the dilation; and over in the corner some idiot is posting about it on Facebook like he is doing a play-by-play.

That idiot would be me.

The soon-to-be, first-time Dad.

Posting on Facebook from the delivery room? Hey, there wasn’t much else for me to be doing at the time, and we had created quite a Facebook following – accidentally – about this oncoming birth. And the little baby girl that was about to arrive was going to change my life in so many ways, but I just had no idea at the time. No idea. What first time dad does?

This was even more the case with me: I was 46 years old and about to become a dad for the first time in my life.

By that age, you have a lot of things pretty much set in your life. I never expected baby stuff all over the place with a newborn. They can’t really do much, right? How much stuff do they need? Within days of bringing that kid home from the hospital, it was everywhere – and my wife and I keep a pretty tidy home. The kid was born at the end of March and by the end of the first week of April there was baby stuff in every single room of the house. It was amazing. I think the kid was planning on taking over the whole time.

Savvy Stories is…

The beauty of children is in the magic they see everywhere; the beauty of parenthood is seeing it with them. “Savvy Stories” is a hilarious and heartwarming look at childhood’s lost, magical moments, viewed through the heart of a father. Crawling, walking, play dates, hopscotch, hibiscuses, potty training, princess dresses, gymnastics classes… and Baby Dolphins – The whole wide world of her questions and his answers.
