Date: December 20, 2012

Michael J. Kannengieser is “a retired New York City police officer who lives on Long Island, in New York with his wife and two children. Michael worked as the Managing Editor for Fiction at The View from Here Magazine; a U.K. based literary publication. Currently, he is employed at a performing arts college as an Instructional Technology Administrator. He has been published at The View from Here, and in Newsday, a Long Island newspaper. Michael speaks as a guest lecturer on campus.”  Michael J. Kannengieser is the author of The Daddy Rock.

According to the book description of The Daddy Rock, “Roger Price is a retired NYPD officer battling depression after his wife and young daughter are killed by a drunk driver. He is contacted by a woman who claims that he is the father of her twenty-two year old daughter, Bonnie, who has leukemia and needs his bone marrow to survive. When Bonnie is diagnosed with leukemia, neither Claire, Brad, nor their other children are a match for Bonnie which stirs Claire's suspicion that Roger is actually her biological father. After learning about Bonnie and the possibility that he is her father, and that she is gravely ill, he vows to help her. Roger's bone marrow is a match, and DNA proves he is her father. Bonnie then undergoes dangerous "conditioning" with radiation prior to receiving Roger's tissue donation. At the same time, Roger's best friend, Danny, also a retired NYPD detective, is pursued by gang members that he arrested while he was a rookie. They served their sentences and are seeking revenge.”
