The man behind the pen name Darin TaDream is just a simple working man who made a snide comment about the quality of a romance novel his wife had just finished. She immediately shoved the foot he put in his mouth further in, until he was gnawing on his kneecap.

Not one to back down from a challenge, he dove into a few more novels, then created his own first story—but not this one. That story was good enough to convince his wife he could write, and the foot was extracted some.

Finding his ankle not very appetizing, he wrote another tale. But to completely remove the foot, he still had to get published.

The book ...Can Come True is the mouthwash to remove the last taste of his toes and allow him to say, “Yes, I can!”
