In 1996 Joshua Michael Connerton was shot and killed by a deputy sheriff in rural Oregon. The shooting was the final blow of a three-year nightmare that started with Josh's introduction to drugs, continued with his downward spiral into heroin addiction, and ended with his death. In January of 2001, as part of his recovery and healing process, Jeff Connerton was compelled to write about life with his teenage son during Josh's years of addiction and about his own journey from devastation to resurrection after Josh's passing. What began as an open-ended private healing exercise evolved into structured writing sessions, ending in March 2001 as a 70,000 word memoir, entitled Hi Josh.
