He never returned, leaving behind a wife, Sharri, and 15-month old son, Devon. Five years later, Sharri remarried, and Devon welcomed a new dad into his life. For thousands, the whole country really, 9/11 is a day of grief. For Adam and Sharri Maio Schefter and their family it’s not just a day of grief, but also hope. This is a story of 9/11, but it’s also the story of 9/12 and all the days after. Life moved on. Pieces were picked up. New dreams were dreamed. The Schefters are the embodiment of that. This book will give voice to all those who have chosen to keep living. It’s gratifying and beautiful. But also messy and hard. Like most families. Except that one day every year history comes roaring back. How do you embrace that? How do you honor that? The Man I Never Met is also a peek at Adam Schefter, the man behind the headlines and injury reports; a real person who has a real family.

Worldly, sophisticated and some days bright, imagine when she answered a personal ad and discovered Roger, a white-collar criminal, a cunning con man was on the other end. They dated for twelve months. Within thirteen weeks after their last date, he would be residing in federal prison. Roger was a happy hustler, eccentric, neurotic sociopath. He was also a polite, charming, charismatic lady-killer, however, not in the literal sense. He broke hearts and created chaos early on in a relationship coupled with a way to relieve women of their money and undies ASAP. He resided quite comfortably in his insane imagination. It was only natural to commit insurance fraud, credit card fraud and break into elaborate computer systems in 5 star hotels, high end shops, and several top companies in the tri state area, eventually Florida and points west. Shaw must have had Roger in mind when he penned, "the more things a man is ashamed of, the more respectable he is." Roger, along with several captivating compelling characters and their stories, are in your hands begging to be read.
In his third book, The Man Who Never Met A Stranger, author Reverend John R. Dolan combines the love and spirituality that infuse his other works to create not only an homage to his friend, Frank Nicholson, but also a model for readers who would love to succeed at their own endeavours. Frank Nicholson's unstoppable positive attitude as well as his humor and grace motivated and inspired the author so much that he decided to write his friend's life story to share with the world. From his birth just before World War II in England, through his employment in Nigeria during the Biafran conflict and Nigeria's Civil War, to the founding of the new American HMO system in the vast and complex Chicago Blue Cross and Blue Shield Organization, Frank Nicholson never met a stranger... His attitude and inspiration influenced many other people besides his good friend, the author, John R. Dolan. As we follow Frank Nicholson in his travels around the world, we learn even more about the quality of this unique human being, qualities that, according to the author, will encourage others to follow their hearts, keep smiling, and live life in a generous and compassionate manner.

To his surprise they hit it off, and when he asks Gavin out, the professor accepts. Even though Evie brought them together, will her demanding personality pull them apart?
