Todd Michael Gent, a retired basketball, football and track coach and teacher, has completed his new book “Hold Your Breath… Breathe”: a captivating and evolving book about growing up in the nineteen sixties, during a time when men are the battlefields of Vietnam and others are attempting to get out of the hay fields that surround hometowns.

Gent writes, “In May of 1967, Bracky Kinsloe had just finished twelve years of public school at Jiba ISD (pronounced Heeba, not Gyba) in Elmo County, Texas, just thirty-five miles east of Dallas. Jiba was a farm community of about 2,500 residents and a lot of livestock, with the Elmo County Court House situated in the center of downtown Elmo. The white brick building stood two stories high with a statue of a Confederate soldier occupying the front south side. Everything in the county happened there, from elections for public officials to trials and housing for criminals.”

Published by Page Publishing, Todd Michael Gent’s humorous tale brings the main character, Bracky, in touch with a plethora of characters who provide help and assistance through the entanglements of life.

Bracky will use his sense of humor to get through loss, changing emotions, the Vietnam war from the home front and growing up during the sixties.

Readers who wish to experience this mesmerizing work can purchase “Hold Your Breath… Breathe” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
