The Feeling Machine
The ABC's of Life


 I Wrote The Feeling Machine in 1989 in collaboration with my son Louis Jr, who was in Elementary School and contributed the characters in the book. I wrote the book with my son in mind because I wanted to help him understand how emotions could affect his every day life while in and out of school. I'm happy to say that my son, an aspiring educator is interpreting the very essence of the book he grew up with. Learning about and dealing with anger, love, feelings in general and self-esteem.
It's simple  to the point and informative reading for young and old alike. 



I Wrote The ABC's Of Life (Adversity Builds Character)  in 1998 as a wake up call for those who are still listening for the call to get going and get involved with life once again. 
have found, through listening to
people in the work force and those who work at home raising children and running the household, that there are perhaps too many self help books that are so deep in their meaning that you have to read the material over and over again to understand the message, the vocabulary, the analysis.  I have used the A B C's of Life to  effect a  "jumpstart" to a better quality of life. In essence, I am helping you by opening a door that perhaps will lead you to do what is necessary for you to become your own person in a new and exciting manner..

Have you ever asked yourself:
Do I Have An Addiction?

Many people are caught up with telling themselves that they are not alcoholic or not addicted to drugs
because they do not “use” all the time.  The major question of questions is, “Do I have problems
or get into trouble when I use alcohol or drugs?”  Chances are that the answer is yes for you
or someone you know.
More questions you should ask yourself:
  1. Do I no longer have the drive or desire regarding my chosen profession due to alcohol and drugs?
  2. Do I hide my drinking and drugging from others?
  3. Am I filled with remorse, guilt and shame due to my drinking and drugging?
  4. Have I lost a job(s) due to my using?
  5. Have I just come out of addiction treatment and cannot stay clean and sober?
  6. Do my friends stay away from me due to my drinking and drugging?
  7. Have my boss or co-workers remarked about my job performance due to my drinking?
  8. Is drinking or “using” putting my business or professional standing in jeopardy?
  9. Has my family left me, kicked me out, or are they considering leaving me because of my drinking and drugging?
10. Am I beginning to compromise my own rules of when to drink or use drugs during the day or week?
11. What about my finances?  Are they, too, in the danger zone?
12. Do I make excuses when I come up short at work, at home, or in just being a responsible person?
13. Are there children or significant others that are being hurt by your alcoholism or drug addiction?    

If you have answered yes
to two or more of these questions you have the major problem of
