I majored in English and Philosophy in college and decided to work in the financial industry after I couldn't find work as a philosopher or novelist. I'm influenced by everything around me and love to blog about random happenings in my life. I find humor in nearly everything and always love to talk.
For "The Nine Lives of Clemenza," my writing was inspired by two unfortunate deaths. I was struggling with my faith and attempted to make sense of it all. "The Nine Lives of Clemenza" made death okay, because in the novel, the life of a soul never ends. The book is also like a collision of The Science Channel, Leibniz and religion.
Retail Ready, a humorous novel about one hellacious work-week, is now available through lulu.com
Writers that influenced me: Emerson, Hunter S Thompson, Kerouac, Dickinson, Wilkie Collins, Kate Atkinson, Tom Wolfe, Jim Harrison, Annie Dillard, and many more.
