Read full description of the books:
Despite access to the greatest healthcare in the world, U.S citizens are not immune to medical horror stories. Such was the experience of Ken Dickson, a beloved husband and father and respected engineer, with no history of mental illness. What should have been an ordinary surgical procedure changed that, propelling him into a high security psychiatric ward where psychiatrists branded him a danger to himself and others.
This gut wrenching novel is leaving readers shocked at the author’s treatment, and appalled by how quickly a medical situation fell through the cracks, sending the patient spiraling uncontrollably into medically induced madness.
This novel is not, however, only about Ken. It is the story of two people deeply in love, but torn apart by fate, an eye-opening introduction to the stigma of mental illness, and a personal run-in with the poor broken souls trapped in psychiatric care. It is a rich and varied exploration of our humanity written from the unique perspective of someone suffering from mental illness.
Detour from Normal is a novel that you cannot afford to ignore, with a message that you will not want to dismiss: tomorrow, next year, or five years from now, this could happen to you.

Read information about the authorKen Dickson is the author of Detour from Normal, The Road to Amistad, and Aim for Justice.
Detour from Normal is the shocking true story of how our broken medical and mental health care systems rob Ken Dickson of his life as a respected engineer and devoted family man, and land him in a high-security psychiatric ward reserved for the most dangerously mentally ill. What is most disturbing is that what happened to him could happen to anyone.
In The Road to Amistad, an unprecedented psychological change catapults people from all walks of life into an extraordinary new level of human consciousness. For most, this leads to confusion and heartache, but for some, it is their calling. Their lives would be idyllic if not for a ruthless killer bent on annihilating them. They have one thing in their favor, however: they never give up.
Aim for Justice is the true story of how Ken Dickson spirals into madness following surgery and loses his right to bear arms. But that is only the beginning. Ken struggles back to normalcy and takes aim at the impossible: reinstating his Second Amendment right. Will Ken be one of the few Americans to ever reclaim that right after suffering from mental illness?
Ken Dickson lives in Phoenix, Arizona with his wife and a motley crew of pets. He loves adventures and recently completed a 1300 mile road-trip through India. A few weeks later, he finished a nine-day solo motorcycle ride through Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado. After that, he travelled to the Baja Peninsula of Mexico to photograph blue whales and pet grey whales.
