Miami native Zack Bush scratched off one of his life goals when he opened the acclaimed jazz club Ball & Chain on Calle Ocho. Now he’s crossed off another: publishing a children’s book. Made for Me is a sweet romp about a burly dad smitten with the tiny baby in his arms, just like Bush became after his two kids.
Bush says there just weren’t a lot of children’s books told from a father’s point of view. “Three years ago, when my oldest was born, I was just overcome with emotion, and I had to get it out somehow,” he said. “This is based on raw emotion and love. The book really just wrote itself from what I was feeling.”
