Milford, Michigan – September 3, 2013 – No one writes comedy quite like acclaimed screenwriter Marc Prey. Now comes his first book, a laugh-out-loud funny, brutally honest and deeply touching collection of personal stories about one man’s relationship with his spouse and offspring. In When It Comes to Spooning, I’m a Fork, Prey takes readers on a journey from first awkward date through raising teenagers, all the while exposing moments that seemingly shift from the hilarious to the poignant in the beat of a heart.

With chapters such as “A World Viewed Through Man Eyes,” “Naked Twister” and the titular “When It Comes to Spooning, I’m a Fork,” Prey spins humorous tales that will leave readers recognizing themselves or, perhaps, the person snoring next to them. Other chapters, such as “The Magic of Christmas” and “Table for Daddy,” may very well bring a tear to the eye. In addition, each chapter is accompanied by a humorous sketch by acclaimed artist Stephanie O’Donnell.

The book is the result of a blog that Prey used to write in order to record his foibles as a husband and father. An independent publisher discovered the blog and asked Prey to compile the best entries into a humor manuscript. The newly-released book joins such popular humor tomes as Sh*t My Dad Says and 8 Simple Rules for Dating My Teenage Daughter.

When It Comes to Spooning, I’m a Fork is published by Motivational Press and is widely available in print, electronic and audio formats, including at
