Share Article

This new nonfiction release published by Dog Ear Publishing shares one man’s experiences in “the good old days” as well as those in the more recent past. Set in the lush landscape of Hawaii, "Grandpa Bigdog", or GBD as he is known in these pages, makes the past come alive for readers, whether they’re young or old.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Bedside Reader: Tales of Growing Up, Living, and Dying” by Thomas J. Miranda.

Tales that are relatable to every reader, no matter his or her walk of life.

(PRWEB) September 13, 2012 -- Author Thomas J. Miranda is not impressed with the direction in which the country seems to be heading, and he’s not afraid to share his opinions. The stories Miranda has compiled in this new collection are meant to entertain as well as educate, to generate laughter even as it turns the wheels of thought in each reader’s head. Miranda’s youth was spent in Hawaii, and then he moved with his family to Campbell, California, where he continued to have adventure after adventure, with a cast of characters as vivid as a Hawaiian sunset.
Miranda’s early career as a chemist and scientist is also filled with stories that are, in turn, instructive and hilarious, and his love for his work shines through. However, GBD’s greatest love was his wife, Carol, or GmBD (Grandma Bigdog). His love for her, and their love for their faith are a sterling example of the institution of marriage, and they provide their friends and loved ones with something to aspire to.
Bedside Reader: Tales of Growing Up, Living, and Dying is an accessible read, with tales that are relatable to every reader, no matter his or her walk of life. Author Thomas J. Miranda is a native of Hawaii, and he has been an active member of the Polymer Chemistry and Coatings Technology field for more than four decades. This is his second book; he has published more than 50 papers and book chapters, and he has authored 13 U.S. patents.
