Outskirts Press. 2008

Portrait of a Mad ManAfter Daddy Died is the shocking true story of how a family was affected by their father's psychotic behavior. They believed that he was literally psychotic, as he engaged in behavior that damaged his family for years to come. He was violent, and abused his wife , and eleven children on a constant basis. He was even violent towards those whom he thought had questioned or challenged him. His sadistic tendencies and abusive behavior pushed several of his children over the edge to the point of having mental breakdowns, encouraging them to commit murder or engage in acts of other violence. Some of the children were driven to molest some of their siblings. As he self-medicated with drugs and alcohol he became a Portrait of a Mad Man. His illness was never diagnosed professionally because he did not believe he had a mental problem. He was a cold-blooded career criminal who displayed a character of constant anger and rage.
