Darren Hogarth began his career as a mechanical engineer, holding various different roles within the automotive industry for over a decade. He began trusting in his gift of story-telling in his early thirties. After being physically active his entire life, he suffered a herniated disc and was forced to inactivity for a few years. He consulted various experts and specialists, from a G.P. to a neurosurgeon, from physiotherapists to personal trainers to chiropractors. He then amalgamated the information required for healing—and orchestrated his own regimen to heal. His experience with healing inspired him to write his first novel, Whatever Sticks Most. Hogarth currently resides in Oakville, Ontario.

Whatever Sticks Most 

Whatever Sticks Most Cover

Nothing heals the body and soul like moving with the rhythm of life.
Myles is a heavy-duty workaholic. Years of drive and dedication have helped him become a partner in an engineering firm and buy pretty much anything he wants. But it has come at a price. The unrelenting stress on his body has manifested in a herniated disc that has turned a successful thirty-seven year old man into an old man seemingly overnight-and caused his girlfriend to leave him. It’s clear to all who know Myles that there’s one thing he’s missing, and it is that one thing that can help ease his pain in every facet of his life: balance. To help him find it, his friend Roy convinces him to visit Jamaica and use his home there for a vacation.
Suddenly immersed in the vibe and rhythm of the island nation where “No
problem” should be the national phrase, the cares, worries, and pains of Myles’ life in Toronto slowly but surely melt away. Surrounded by the unshakeable kindness and generosity of Miss Pearl and the soulful Rastafarian Moses, Myles experiences a shift in life focus when his vacation for the purpose of healing becomes so much more: a journey of spiritual enlightenment, culture shock, and the humbling confusion of love. A profoundly moving and deeply spiritual experience, Whatever Sticks Most takes you on a journey that will forever change the way you look at work, life, and love.
