Brian Michael Good, author bio
Brian Michael Good was born in Milton, Massachusetts and moved to Gulf Breeze, Florida in 2007. Brian Michael Good is a self-made man. He has lived a life buffeted by character-altering hurricanes. His life storms began in his trauma-filled childhood within his dysfunctional family.
Brian is a suicide attempt, cancer, verbal, physical, and sexual abuse survivor. He survived childhood verbal, physical, and sexual abuse; the death of two siblings; the stigma of being homeless – not once, but three times; two bankruptcies; a six-pound cancer that was doubling every two months; a near-fatal suicide attempt in 2003; the death of his best friend; three divorces; and the rejection of his only daughter.
In my last semester of college, the doctors at the New England Medical Center, Boston, told me I had a six-pound inoperable tumor between my abdomen and spine that was doubling every two months. The cancer would have been twelve pounds, two months after it was discovered, and twenty-four pounds, four months after my cancer was diagnosed.
I attempted suicide on October 23, 2003 when I lived in Quincy, Massachusetts, I was homeless walking Cambridge streets for 10 months during the day in 2004) and Quincy where I was found in a coma thirty minutes from death. I was homeless for three months during college, eight months in 2004 (my suicide attempt), ten months from 2010 to 2011 (writing two books simultaneously over a period of six years).
In January 2015 I started funding for the Best To Live, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, whose goal is to be an outreach initiative providing answers, information, and provide resources for health needs and overall wellness for anyone who needs to survive emotional, mental, or physical stress.
