Life's What Happens

563 pages8 hours



He is too young to drink (legally) but not too young to die.  Don Williams is a senior at Kent State University and lives in an off-campus fraternity house.  He and his girlfriend Lisa are making plans for their future after graduation when suddenly, it’s all taken away.  His career, his freedom of choice and even his frat brothers who have become his family. 

Life’s What Happens when you mix the hormone-fueled emotions of youth who have left home to experience the mind, mood and physical freedoms of college life with the cultural and political changes of the late 1960’s.  For the brothers of Phi Psi Kappa fraternity their biggest worries should have been how to pass their classes with the least amount of studying and the greatest amount of partying and girls.  Instead, they are faced with the life-and-death decision of whether they should face their fates head-on, change their plans or just run away.    

It is about the year they turned from boys to men, and where their choices took them.
