Dwayne C. Nelson debuts self-published children’s book

by June Portnoy

How many times a week do you lose your TV remote, only to embark on a search throughout your house to find it? It is precisely this scenario that inspired Dwayne C. Nelson, to write his first book, “The Mystery of the Lost Remote.”

This children’s story is targeted for kids between the ages of six and eight. It’s about a father who returns home from a hard day of work, ready to relax on his recliner and watch the football games on his big-screen TV, only to discover he can’t find the remote. Assuming one of his children, Andre or Kelly, lost it again, he insists that they look for it.

They search everywhere in the house, even in the refrigerator, until Andre remembers it is on the back of the recliner where their father is sitting. Dwayne admits that losing the TV remote is a routine occurrence at his Trevose home where he lives with his wife, Angel, their eight-year-old daughter, Mia and their 10-year-old son, Darius.

These three drivers had the unique experience of being part of the first group of seniors to participate in St. Mary Regional Trauma Center’s launch of CarFit’s national program in Bucks County.
