About the Author

J.P. McMichael

J.P. McMichael is a speaker, author, and advocate for first responders and military veterans. J.P. is a twenty-five-year law enforcement veteran. J.P. was a first responder to the Pentagon on 9/11, and his struggles with PTSD almost led him to end his own life in 2003. J.P. started Catalyst of Change Associates in 2017.

An advocate for PTSD and suicide awareness in the first responder and military community, J.P. authored the children’s book “Why won’t you play with me?”, about the conversations he had with his young son to help him better understand his struggles with PTSD and suicide.

J.P. received his master’s degree in counseling from Liberty University and is an Adjunct Professor in Criminal Justice and Corrections.




Most everyone loves dogs, children especially. Children will love this book! The images within the book will attract children of all ages. McMichael tells the story through Taz’s eyes.

You can feel the excitement Taz has as he jumps in the car to go. You can imagine him jumping from the car upon arriving at the dog park to play with his friends. Children in some ways are like animals. Telling the story from Taz’s point of view will appeal to the children. I envision little kids everywhere sitting and reading this book to their pets. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear of their animals having adventures of their own.

I think Taz just may be the new Biscuit!- Reviewed by Award-Winning Author, Shannon Simpson.

Since You’ve Been Gone
Since You’ve Been Gone is a story of losing someone who has impacted your life in every way, and the struggle of moving on without them there. Often times a loss is sudden and unexpected. How do you go from them being there one day and gone the next? I hope this story helps people begin to move forward and at the same time helps them focus on the impact that the person they lost had, by focusing on what made them such a special force in their lives.
