Benjamin Patterson

Author Benjamin Pattersonabout this book: Stuff Happens is my personal story about taking the lemons of life and making lemonade. It begins with hurricane Katrina, a devastating storm that destroyed the way of life for myself and many others. In the process of putting my life back together I was betrayed and abused by those close to me. Fortunately, I was kept strong by the love and guidance of God and a woman. I stated writing Stuff Happens while confined to a Veterans mental institution as a way of relieving stress and expressing my feelings and emotions.

I subtitled my book Surviving Disaster by Turning Tragedy into Triumph because hurricane Katrina was my tragedy and Stuff Happens is my Triumph. Writing this book took a lot of heart and emotion and still to this day I feel the same emotion every time I read it. By sharing my story I hope to inspire others whom may be facing similar situations or just trying to make lemonade out of life's lemons. Thanks for your time and I hope you enjoy this roller coaster ride through my life and find out what kinds of Stuff can Happen!!
