In Facing the Dragon, you will witness the slow, agonizing metamorphosis of a good-looking high-school athlete into a violent, drug-dealing, psychotic wife-beater whose children were terrified of him. After more than twenty-three years addicted to methamphetamine and other drugs, David Parnell put an SKS assault rifle under his chin and pulled the trigger. The blast took off half his face, yet he somehow survived. Walk alongside as he endures countless surgeries to reconstruct his decimated face.
Parnell has been clean and sober for more than eleven years and is making the most of his second chance by bringing his message about the dangers of meth and other drugs to schools, prisons, churches, and anti-drug organizations around the world as a full-time lecturer. By experiencing the nightmare of his life—and his brief glimpse of hell—you will find hope and healing when facing your own life-threatening dragons.

Here a few insightful reviews:
“Facing the Dragon” is the kind of story that you won’t soon forget – nor should you. If it were up to me, every U.S. legislator and drug-policy maker in the world would have to read this important book about the destructive power of methamphetamine! … Thank you Amy Hammond Hagberg and David Parnell for a wonderful book and for all of your efforts to educate others about the dangers of methamphetamine!
…David takes you on a journey from his personal hell ..and believe me, you are there with him at every turn…until the very end. I could not put this book down, I needed to know what happened and how he felt during the ride. Amy Hammond Hagberg did an excellent job with his story, and his family must be so proud . I would highly recommend “Facing The Dragon” to anyone caught in the throes of addiction, no matter what kind, and in reading David’s story, know that there is a way out…
David’s is a story of hope… come along for the ride! If the book touches you, please leave a review on Amazon and tell your friends.
Until next time,
