What inspired you to write your book?
My own personal journey for meaning and becoming a writer. Plus, I wanted to read it.
Here is a short sample from the book:
“She looked like a fish.
“Thirty dollars is too much,” she said.
I said, “I agree.”
People don’t usually look like fish. It takes a certain kind of physiognomy to pull it off. Very unique. In Mrs. Hall’s case, she needed to have parents with recessive face-pinching genes, a touch of jaundice, collagen-engorged lips caked in burgundy lipstick, wild, enraged eyes—which my company, Fly Away, could take credit for—and a hair dresser with a sense of humor to perfectly flare the dyed blond hair bob to mimic fins. Plant that handsome head over a seafoam business suit and you’ll find few wage slaves willing to take her seriously.
