About the Author: Derek McFadden

I was born in 1982 with a mild form of cerebral palsy. From that point to this, I have striven to write the kinds of stories readers want to read (get lost in) and the kinds I want to tell. Often my main characters will have the same palsy I do. This is because, as a kid, when I would read stories I would always think, None of these people are anything like me.
I can't wait for all the readers here at Goodreads--and everywhere there's a reader who hungers for a good story--to read my as-yet unpublished novel, Even God Makes Mistakes. The story is not religious. Rather, it's an absorbing look at a family and real life, and what life means. There's also a fair amount of the afterlife involved!
Please visit the website for Even God Makes Mistakes at www.facebook.com/evengodmakesmistakes. It is my sincere hope that I'll get to share my story with you, and that I'll get to meet, thank, and sign a book for every single person who visits my page!

Derek McFadden, author of two previous works of fiction and an acclaimed book of poetry, was afflicted at birth with cerebral palsy. This unique life experience has provided him with challenges and insights that exceed what most would come to know in a quarter century on this planet. In Picnics, his new novella, Derek invokes an imaginative bend on life. Whimsically and entertainingly, he examines the forces of free will versus predestination as well as the passages of life; love, dreams, parenting, affliction, and others. Colin Banks lives in the shadow of his famous author-father. When his progenitoras publisher suggests he write a novel of his own, his lifeaand the lives of those around himawill never be the same. In the spirit of Nicholas Sparks, with tinges of The Twilight Zone, Picnics is an unforgettable read you will return to again and again!
