DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
"The writing is super witty, modern, and out-the-side-of your-mouth snarky...Simply put; we fell in love with this story." - Book Bin Divers
Jacob Martin's life is not going well. His marriage is falling apart, his job is on the border of legal and illegal, and he's living in what could generously be described as a dump. Now Dad, whose memory and mental faculties aren't exactly what they once were, has decided to drive across the country for a visit. Forced into an unplanned road trip, Jacob finds love, enlightenment, and ultimately himself along the way.
In his second novel, Bob Seay has crafted a story about family that is at once poignant and wryly humorous with unforgettable characters and an even more memorable message.
"I can't emphasize or praise this novel and Bob Seay's writing style enough, but I'll give it a go--it would not surprise me to read Bob Seay's name on a Nobel Literature prize in the near future." - Lex Allen for Readers' Favorite, 5-star review
The author paints a realistic picture of the daily dilemmas created by dementia... These difficult moments are balanced with Jacob's humorous way of viewing his family and himself. Another realistic component is how Jacob is dealing with his dying marriage and unfulfilling career. The development of this main character, as well as his siblings and others, is crafted skillfully. The storyline captivates the reader from the first page to the last, providing a thought-provoking perspective in dealing with aging parents and how siblings deal with it - and each other. Dad, written by Bob Seay, is an excellent read! -Deborah Lloyd for Reader's Favorite, 5-star review
Bob Seay realized he wanted to be a writer in 2013when his Facebook status, "I Am Not Trayvon Martin", went viral. In 2016, Bob took a break from teaching to run for Congress. Two out of three voters in his heavily conservative district indicated that they wanted him to keep on teaching music. He is the author of two novels, The Band Room andDad.
