One For The Fellas

by Henry O. Willingham

      In One For The Fellas, Henry O. Willingham creatively proves that the pen is indeed mightier than the sword. This entertaining story is slanted toward a man's point of view. Parts of the story are based on actual events and other parts are purely fictional. Henry O. Willingham brings attention to the out-of-control problem of child support (at least in certain cases) and child custody. Ladies buckle up and hold on tight—'cause this one is One For The Fellas.

Antonio Nixon has big plans and a bright future ahead of him until his older brother dies and then his fiancé dies in a plane crash; suddenly his world has turned upside-down. Instead of becoming a professional football player and eventually a lawyer, Tony decides to marry. Tony met Kandi Franklin in history class in college, she was there for him when his brother and fiancé died. After just a few short months of marriage Tony learns to expect the unexpected with Kandi, as his once peaceful life becomes a nightmare and he finds himself living a hellish existence. They enter into a divorce that makes War of the Roses look like mere child’s play.

Before his divorce is even final, Tony finds himself in another relationship with another woman just as crazy as Kandi. Tony has a daughter with each one of these women. He soon finds his wages garnished and after paying out child support to two women (two children) he has very little left to live on. Beaten down and frustrated beyond belief at the system and the two mothers of his children, Tony takes matters of revenge into his own hands.
