Coffeetown Press Releases Destination Tent City, AZ, a Memoir About the Aftermath of a DUI
Destination Tent City, AZ (ISBN: 978-1-60381-109-5, $11.95, 168 pp), is an account of one woman’s harrowing experiences after she is arrested for drinking and driving, “as told to” Mark Feuerer., 8/15/2011 - Seattle, WA.—Destination Tent City, AZ (ISBN: 978-1-60381-109-5, $11.95, 168 pp), is an account of one woman’s harrowing experiences after she is arrested for drinking and driving, “as told to” Mark Feuerer.

“Feuerer’s look at the real story behind a government that manipulates ‘criminal’ statistics for its own profit is well written and highly recommended,” writes Brandon M. Stickney in ForeWord Digital Reviews.

“Each year thousands of Americans are kil*led by alcohol-impaired driving,” says Kenneth Sharp, Host of Ridin’ Dirty, the Radio Show. “This must-read will help you understand how the book’s subject lost her life too—following a casual Sunday drive.”

Ever since Tent City was established in 1993, this pri*son in Maricopa, Arizona, has been making headlines. Destination Tent City, AZ chronicles a two-year period of a young woman’s life after she, like so many Americans, made the fateful decision to drink and drive. This “as told to” account of the practical and psychological repercussions of receiving a DUI should give readers pause the next time they decide to drive away from happy hour. Especially if they happen to be in Arizona.

“My inspiration for writing the book came from my desire to turn the process of my friend’s DUI into a positive experience,” says author Mark Feuerer. “Although we can all agree that drinking and driving is dangerous and must be stopped, we should be debating the severity of the penalties; our present system is so punitive that it often leaves offenders completely crushed and therefore more likely to reoffend; they simply have nothing left to lose. I do not believe that the woman who told me her story will ever drink and drive again. I’m willing to bet she’s one of the exceptions. If we really want to help problem drinkers and alcoholics and prevent them from driving under the influence in the future, why are we incarcerating them over one infraction? We should at least ensure that our primary goal isn’t filling the state’s coffers by keeping its pri*sons occupied.”

Mark Feuerer was born and raised in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin, a small town just northwest of Milwaukee. He is the youngest of eight siblings. Mark headed off to Princeton University in 1984, where he played baseball, football and graduated with a B.A. in Psychology. After a short stint playing professional baseball in Australia in 1989-1990, he settled into a career in the heavy construction equipment industry, working on both the manufacturing and dealership sides of the business. He received his MBA in 1998 from Keller Graduate School of Management and spent 2003 in law school at New England School of Law. In 2008, he married his wife Kelly (nee Weigand), managing attorney for a healthcare network provider. Mark, Kelly, and their three cats and one dog live in Scottsdale, Arizona.
