About the Book    About the Author

Adventure! Death defying acts of balance! Late-night capers! An adventure is always just around the corner. You do not have to travel to the four corners of the globe to have a heart-pounding experience. Sometimes it is as close as the back seat of the mini van or the bedroom down the hall. What is a man to do when faced with a full diaper and not a baby wipe in site? What is the protocol for fishing a toy out of the plumming after it has been flushed? How does one play a game of Rainbow Princess Unicorn on the playgroud and maintain his dignity? Staying home with children is not for the faint of heart. In fact it is an epic adventure that many men this century are discovering, including world famous (at least on his block) writer Tincan Caldwell (or Alex Caldwell, as his driver’s license says) who is a writer, reporter, freelance preacher, and stay-at-home dad who lives in Tilton, New Hampshire. He enjoys a hearty bowl of oatmeal, the band U2, the writings of John Steinbeck, the Boston Red Sox, and wearing a variety of nifty hats. He would like to thank his two pretty daughters, India and Ireland, and beautiful wife, Julie, for letting him make unusual career moves. No Vacation Goes Unpunished - Tales From An Unlikely Stay-At-Home-Dad is his second book, and the account of his first five years as a writer and dad.
