“The book is about me and my alter ego Howard. Howard is afraid of just about everything. Howard thinks I'm going to get excommunicated from the Catholic Church and be damned to hell. I think God will love the book and take me to heaven in a heartbeat.”

Bernard Smith, a former Management Consultant for Fortune 500 companies turned adventurer and world traveler, has completed his book “Sing A New Song”: a gripping and potent literary work about facing death, overcoming daunting odds, and discovering the beauty and power of living in the present. He has also written five other books, Focus Forecasting: Computer Techniques for Inventory Control, Focus Forecasting and DRP: Logistic Tools of the 21st Century, Power Planning for Business: Avoiding Make-Believe Business, Time Drum, and To Judy Love From Your Love.
Displaying his intriguing wit, Smith has this to say about his story: “The book is about me and my alter ego Howard. Howard is afraid of just about everything. He worries about germs, identity theft, cholesterol, high blood pressure, deer ticks, global warming, etc. He's always warning me not to do things. Take this book for instance, Howard thinks I'm going to get excommunicated from the Catholic Church and be damned to hell. I think God will love the book and take me to heaven in a heartbeat.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Bernard Smith’s poignant tale is a vivid reminder of the importance of cherishing the precious moments we have in life with our loved ones and the wonderful adventures that may be found in the wide world around us.
From a hardscrabble upbringing on Long Island, Smith eventually became a great success in the field of computer programming. It all started when he was accepted into Fairfield Prep in Connecticut even though his family could scarcely afford it, where the Jesuits taught him about faith in God that reinforced his childhood Catholicism and sustained him for the rest of his life. From there, he achieved all the status symbols a young boy from humble roots could hope for: an executive title, a mansion, a wife and kids. But it all began to seem much less important after a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer that nearly killed him in middle age.
While recuperating in Florida, Bernie met Judy, a ray of Southern sunshine who gave his life new meaning. Instead of being afraid of germs, health problems and other threats to his health and wealth, Bernie undertakes a new adventure all the while bringing with him the lessons and wisdom from his past.
