About the Book

Do you remember the first TV you ever saw, the Space Race, sonic booms, JFK, men on the Moon, the Cuban Missile Crissis, Friendship 7 as well as numerous events and inventions from the 1950's and 60's?

Well, if you answered yes to any of the above, you're going to love reading Ma's Cow. The book is a treasure trove of memories of that happy innocent time known to some as the Cold War and to others as a period of Camelot between World War II and the Oil Crisis of the 1970's.

Whatever name you remember the era as you doubtless have happy memories of a time long gone, but seemingly so recent in our memories.

Ma's Cow has something for everyone.

About the Author

Patrick (Paddy) Flanagan was born in the small town of Bathurst, New Brunswick, Canada and spent his formative years in the village of Belledune on New Brunswick's scenic north shore.

He attended local schools and dropped out of high school in the early 1970's.  He passed a GED program in 1980 and later took a two year dipoloma course in journalism at the  New Brunswick Community College in Woodstock N.B.  from which he graduated in 1988.

He worked as a journalist in three Canadian provinces then returned to Bathurst where he and his wife Elizabeth  owned and operated a taxi company for a number of years.

Patrick and Elizabeth were divorced in 2000 and he moved to Moncton, New Brunswick where he still lives. He maintains contact with all his family including four children; Roger, Martina, George and Clara Jane.

The stories in Ma's Cow all come from personal memories lived and loved by him and his family.
