About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Not too long ago I heard her say, "I never met a drug I didn't like." That scared me so badly that I had to share some things that I went through in the hope that it will prevent someone from going down the same road that she is. How can I watch someone drown and not jump in after them? Even if she lives through everything that she's doing to herself and her loved ones, what will her consequences be in the end? This young lady has been running away from home, having sex with multiple partners, and has been into very heavy drugs along with other criminal activities. Since her parents, the police and the court systems have done the best they could to intervene, they will now have to sit idly by and just hope for the best. She was so sweet, so young, so innocent. How did this happen? She's only thirteen. I wish I couldn't relate... but I can.
Deftly constructed at 132 pages, Memoirs of a Runaway:: A Story of Hope is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Autobiography category.

About the Author
Michael Kennon is the President and CEO of Kennon Transport, LLC, a very successful trucking company he runs with his wife of 11 years, Sue. Before owning his own company, Mike was a runaway and was virtually homeless for most of his childhood and young adulthood. To survive on the road, Mike did everything from driving tractor-trailers, sold encyclopedias door to door, hustled pool, was a baker, ski instructor, sous chef, drug dealer and many other positions of many natures. Drugs and other dependencies took over Mike's life to the point that he could not accept help when it was offered, nor could he stop running away from a past that haunted him. While now blessed with what he has achieved in his life and in his personal, family and business relationships, things were much different at one time. "Memoirs of a Runaway: A Story of Hope" is a tale of survival and spirituality. Isolation and reconnection. Most of all, it is a hand reaching out to those who travel down the same troubled path; a story of hope.
