Moe Fields – The Special Bond
Between Fathers and Sons:
Why write a book?

Why write a book? It’s a question I get often from those writing book reviews, during media interviews and from friends.

I started writing “Moe Fields – The Special Bond Between Fathers and Sons” more than 20 years ago. I felt such regret after my dad’s death on May 1976. He never got to meet my children. I can’t explain this, but it always seemed to me a blessing that my children would have some physical memory of my dad.

“Moe Fields” gave me a chance to honor my father, mother, and my Jewish faith. Writing it was therapeutic in a sense, giving me extra appreciation for surviving crisis through the love of family and reminded me to stay strong through my own adversity.

I didn’t believe I’d ever finish a book. I had been a ghostwriter for CEOs and C-suite executives my whole career. I had written and published my own bylined articles on public policy issues in newspapers, a child of the 1960s still trying to change the world around me. I regularly contributed a forward-looking perspective to PR trade journals on how transformation in telecom and technology would influence corporate communication strategy.

“Moe Fields” has allowed me to give the world a memoir on overcoming disabilities while sharing my inspirational family story. I hope you enjoy.

Moe Fields is a true story. However, in fairness, what’s true in life (or non-fiction narrative) is often a matter of perspective. The author does not claim sole ownership of truth. Each of us in my family may have experienced these life events differently. Some may see nuance where others see black and white. This story cannot represent the ultimate truth in the life of Moe and his family. For that reason, the names of characters have been changed to respect the privacy of family members who may feel or recollect things through a different lens. Also, the names of other characters used in the book are not intended to represent actual people or historical circumstances. These names are simply literary conveniences to help tell the story. Love has a way of shading the things we see and believe. The one constant, however, is that we share the value of family.
