DAYTON, Ohio (PRWEB) July 25, 2018

Set for a new marketing campaign, "I Am John H. Holliday DDS. You May Call Me Doc" (published by AuthorHouse) by author Patrick Gillen gives a thorough account of Dr. John H. Holliday's life told from his perspective with a lot emotion and a fun Western adventure that readers can enjoy.

Gillen has lived through many of the same most crucial moments as the famous dentist known as Doc Holliday. In this book, he explores Doc's life through a personal lens, drawing parallels from his own experience living with illness. Written from a first person perspective, the style is reminiscent of a memoir – using biographical background from Doc's birth to his death in a way that feels like Doc is sharing his personal story.

In "I Am John H. Holliday DDS. You May Call Me Doc," readers are transported into the past as a remarkable story unfolds. Doc Holliday was immediately ostracized by his father due to the cleft palate he was born with. It was his mother who adored him and raised him in her faith and with a love of music. He enters into the field of dentistry with big dreams. His future is shattered when he was diagnosed with consumption and the doctor advises him to go to Texas for the dryer air. As he leaves his family to go into his own exile, he creates a different future for himself and develops a friendship with Wyatt Earp.

From the telling of a man coping with a disabling, terminal illness while trying to preserve his sense of honor and independence and avoid being a burden, Gillen hopes the book will encourage those who are terminally ill or disabled to see that they have a choice to focus on living or dying. He hopes that the story encourages them to focus on living.
