In the course of the book, the reader learns about all the times in which Mike and Doris have corresponded throughout the years and how the two have become friends, even though only meeting one time.
The book is titled "My 'Secret Love' Affair With Doris Day", and the title itself is explained throughout the book. How their careers intertwined throughout the sixy plus years is developed, and the reader also gets some insight into Doris' career, as well, particularly her music and her movies and how they personally affected the author.
As a former teacher of English, Journalism and Theatre Arts, Mike was prompted by former students and friends to try his hand at writing. They even suggested he write about something dear to his heart, his constant affinity for Doris... and thus the book got its impetus. It should be available through several online retailers, but especially through Amazon.Com (both in the US and in the UK) by the end of July, 2012. Mike hopes readers will enjoy the book, and he hopes to send donations to Miss Day's Animal Foundation, whenever any royalties are collected.
