On May 1, 2014, author Sean Patrick Brennan began a year-long journey unlike any other he'd ever embarked on before. His great pursuit? The amazing, unbelievable end goal? No, it was not to climb Mount Everest or sail around the world. Nor was it to run his first marathon, star in his first Broadway show, or even to get a shoutout on his local radio station. Sean's ultimate journey was far more personal, far more...particular. For one year, from May 1, 2014 through April 30, 2015, Sean Patrick Brennan wrote every day to chronicle his fortieth year of life on Earth, finishing up on the eve of his 40th birthday. Truly a one-of-a-kind collection, Finishing Forty is packed solid with stories from Sean's past and present, including fun accounts of his time as a Publishers Clearing House Prize Patrol Deputy, fascinating details of his four years as a monk, confessions of his past, and so much more. This year's worth of blog entries, short stories, and poems are all part of the author's journey to forty, but they're now all yours to live through as well.
