About the book |

Access Denied by David E. Gates

David meets Meg. They fall in love and, despite a turbulent relationship, have a child together fulfilling David’s dream to be a father.

After they separate, David has to fight the mother and Family Courts to see his daughter and also battles against the incompetence and lies of the Child Support Agency who seem hell-bent on ruining him, emotionally and financially.

A must-read for ANY parent.

For anyone who has had to deal with the CSA/CMS and the Family Courts, this is compelling reading. Thought-provoking, honest, extraordinary, revealing. A damning indictment of the Child Support Agency and Family Courts.

If the measure of a good book is it’s after burn, Access Denied is a great book.

When you’ve nothing left to lose, what else can you give?

A quite extraordinary true story.

I’ve also chosen to cross post my Monday “Movie” Book Trailer Swap with the lovely lady Lauren @AlwaysMe (blog) Drew @The Tattooed Book Geek (blog) @SarcasticEnigma (Twitter) and musical maestro Mischenko (blog) @J_Mischenko (Twitter). Here are the rules:
Every Monday share one or two of songs you’ve been enjoying lately.  It doesn’t have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favourites – just something you’d like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

Sassy Brit: Do you have a favourite song or playlist?

David E. Gates : Anything by Iron Maiden, Transvision Vamp’s Velveteen and Justin Hayward – Forever Autumn – from the musical version of War of the Worlds.
