Nerdy Odyssey

I invite you on a nerdy odyssey through the pages of my book, “DinQ: D&D in the Coffin Hold of the USS Enterprise.” This memoir/fantasy meld takes you on a whirlwind journey, weaving together scenes from tabletop role-playing games (TTRPGs) played during Michael’s formative years.

Let me lead you through my upbringing with two addicts for parents. But don’t worry, I wasn’t alone; I had a close-knit group of friends, including Tony, Michael (my brother), shipmates Tenisha and Corey, and Amanda, my first wife. Our stories are interwoven throughout the book, providing a deeper context to my life.

As you flip through the pages, you’ll witness the transformation of a nerdy kid into a young sailor. My unflinching reflection on the choices I makes lead to the decisions I face. The challenges of balancing marriage and finances while serving in the Navy paints a vivid picture of my coming-of-age journey.

But “DinQ” isn’t just a linear narrative; it’s a tapestry of experiences. The story comes to life through story snippets, adding a fantastical twist to his narrative. You’ll also find a delightful travel-blog element that takes you on my tour to the Persian Gulf and the Mediterranean Sea.

My memoir isn’t just about nostalgia. It’s a testament to the power of escapism through games like D&D and fandoms like Star Trek and Star Wars. It’s about facing anxiety and depression head-on and finding solace in the world of imagination.

So, dive into “DinQ: D&D in the Coffin Hold of the USS Enterprise”. It’s a rollercoaster ride of emotions, nostalgia, and growth. It’s a memoir that encapsulates a lifetime of experiences, sprinkled with the magic of TTRPGs and the nerdy odyssey through Navy life.
