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.

Once my children turned three years old, I left my day job to focus on raising them. The journey of seeing them grow up and go through every new experience has been a true blessing. Time has flown by, and I decided to relive those moments by capturing them in book format as first experiences.
The story of Sam's first practice is based on my own experience with my two sons. It touches upon the themes of being nervous, teamwork, learning, persistence, encouragement, and having fun! I really hope you enjoy this book with your children and that it helps them to develop their reading skills in a topic that they enjoy (soccer!).
