NORWICH – Lifelong Norwich resident, Dennis Gager, has recently seen his longtime dream become a reality with the publication of his first children’s book – “Billy Rabbit’s Halloween Adventure.”
Picked up by French Point Publishing, a Missouri based publishing company, in May of 2014, Gager’s story finally became a full-fledged book in September. Although Gager’s story is now a tangible thing that can be held in one’s hand, looked at, and enjoyed by many, he said that there was a process involved to reach that point.
In regards to “Billy Rabbit’s Halloween Adventure,” Gager said, “I wrote it down probably seven or even eight years ago for my nephew because I really didn’t like what was out there for children’s stories … and after reading it to him on a few occasions, I basically forgot about it.” Luckily, however, Gager did have foresight enough to make sure “Billy Rabbit” was backed up digitally on his computer’s hard drive.
