Room For Another: A Courageous Adoption Story Based on True Events

A Courageous Adoption Story Based on True Events

Every choice you make carries a consequence. What if your consequence was an unwanted pregnancy?

Having retired from teaching and journalism, Theresa receives a phone call from a friend asking for a favor. Would she help out two girls who are struggling with a high school writing assignment?

Theresa graciously agrees to share part of her life for the biographical paper. She surprises her unsuspecting young interviewers with stories of a broken childhood, tales of love found and lost, and the strength summoned to make the hardest decision of her life.

The sharing of her past not only provides fodder for Theresa’s students, but also prepares herself for one of the most impactful introductions yet to come.

Room For Another is a fictionalized account based on true life events of author Diane M. Dresback’s biological mother. The one thing that Diane learned about her mother was that it didn’t matter if you were blood, step, half, ex, in-law, adopted, or anywhere in-between—everyone was family and she always had room in her heart for another.

Mister B: Living With a 98-Year-Old Rocket Scientist

cover

This is the #1 Best Selling, Pinnacle Award Recipient. Mister B’s jaunty calculating rhythm offers timely subject matter for adult children caring for parents and grandparents. With middle-age couched between quirky days and minutes of kindness, MISTER B’s confessions roll tide from the earliest days of aerospace engineering in Alabama through World War II and the Cold War secrecy. So, how will life unfold when a chauffeur-cook decides to move into the home of this self-centered, 98-Year-Old Rocket Scientist… will she really lend aid?

Mister B is a book that spins Americana like cotton candy. He could care less about being politically correct. That’s not Mr. B’s style. But, it seems his plan is to live forever.

For curiosity seekers of aerospace and structural science, for story lovers of the Greatest Generation and World War II, for family members caring for aging parents… Mister B is a treasure worth unearthing. Lacking education, a child of Polish immigrant parents, Joseph Byk determined to get educated and use what he learned to design flying machines. If you liked the movie, Imagine That, you’ll love this book.

How did Mister B pull himself up by his bootstraps in the 1930s and 1940s? This much is true, that the old’ man views history as his current state, telling all he can manage to repeat, while his new companions embark to redesign his dry acre into a flowering conversation piece where mushroom collecting. The unlikely companions eventually discover why they each still matter.

Joseph Byk was born in 1916, the Woonsocket, Rhode Island son of Polish immigrants. From the disadvantage of rope-tied, baggy pants poverty, Mister B becomes a man whose search for meaning defies gravity as much as his work on the 1930s new flight trainers and spacecraft do. How does he do it?

This instructive and humorous aerospace memoir, Mister B, offers biographical tender family stories, irony, and historic photographs to make a disgruntled reader furiously happy. It can be found in the grumpy old men’s section at your local bookstore…aging older men.

A terrific confessional. An unusual love story! The instructive and comedic Mister B begins as a 98-year-old rocket science distraction as a chauffeur-cook on the verge of financial ruin decides to help alleviate his loneliness. A surprising odyssey begins. After she settles in with the physicist, the old man decides to teach his new helper a few life lessons.

Born in 1916, to a Polish-speaking mother, physicist Joseph Byk began his early schooling in rope-tied-baggy-pants-poverty. He was every teachers’ dreaded student. Ending his senior year, however, he aspired to design vehicles that defy gravity. Joseph B IS the loveable, bumbling scientist portrayed in Nevil Shute’s romantic character, Mr. Honey, (Jimmy Stewart) in the movie, No Highway in the Sky.

For curiosity seekers of aerospace and structural science, how did it all start? Here is the story of a forgotten stress engineer whose philosophy, calculations, and outspoken opinions saved many lives. Being politically correct is not Mister B’s style, though Greatest Generation story lovers, World War II hounds, and family members caring for aging parents, think of Mister B as a national treasure.
