Hospital Hijinks: A Patients Memoir (Rik’s new book!)

What’s so funny about dying?  By playing jokes and pranking the hospital staff I was able to minimize the suffering and depression when I almost died on three separate occasions. I have captured those moments in my new book, “Hospital Hijinks: A Patient’s Memoir,” which I wrote under my pen name Rick Mulligan.

Hospital Hijinks

For those of you who know me, or think you know me, this memoir will give you added insight to the wacky world inside my head. The book is available on Kindle for .99 cents right now ( I would greatly appreciate the honor of a review so I can get enough 5-star reviews for Amazon to take notice, plus I might be able to put cheese on my macaroni this month. Thank you all in advance. Cheers!
