Kenneth Collins, a father, grandfather, Navy veteran, and retired marriage and family therapist who lives in Kentucky with Joe Ann, his wife of fifty-seven years, has completed his new book “The Orphanage on Reflection”: an entertaining semi-autobiographical memoir of imaginative and often death-defying boyhood adventures.

Collins writes, “The book ‘Orphanage on Reflection’ is a story about two boys who were left without any family after a devastating fire took both of their parents and their home. The boys, Francis and Leo, are now under the care of a staff in the orphanage, which is a whole new experience for them. Both of the boys are very adventuresome and are always pushing the envelope in their activities. Some episodes are life-threatening, and others are noted for their mischief. All of which is being recorded by Margie, the resident nurse. All the events described in this book are the authors real-life incidents, but not always with the same people. Only the names and locations have been changed to protect the subjects in this book. As you read along with each episode of their adventures, you can almost visualize, one, the potential dangers of some of them and, two, the events that report the misadventure of the two boys in their teens and are left loose to explore life in the real world. As you read this book about their experiences, it makes you wonder how they can get into so much mischief. Believe me, it was easy.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Kenneth Collins’s engaging book is a fond reflection of childhood in a bygone era.
