Author bio
A child in the 1950s and ‘60s in one of Louisville’s suburbs, Highland Park, Connard struggled with his father’s alcoholism and resulting spousal abuse. As an escape Connard relished school and visits to grandparents, participated in sports activities and sets his sights on an engineering degree with hopes to become an astronaut. After dropping out of engineering school, as a result of underwhelming grades and myopia, and being drafted into the US Army, Connard served a one-year tour of duty in Vietnam. Following an honorable discharge, he received a BS in Sociology and then an MA in Marriage, Family and Child Counseling. As a licensed therapist, Connard worked twenty-five years in various settings treating alcoholics/addicts and those suffering major psychiatric disorders. An avid traveler, Connard has traveled the world and ascended numerous mountains. As a child of an alcoholic and abusive father, and a therapist treating drug/alcohol addiction, Connard understands the futility of co-dependent tactics, as well as the ravages wrought upon alcoholics/addicts and those with whom they interact. Married three times and divorced twice—though never as a polygamist—Connard believes that “third time’s the charm,” while he’s appreciative that suffering his adult-child-of-an-alcoholic temperament requires a spouse’s dedication.
