Blurry: Observations of a Drunk

Blurry: Observations of a Drunk


In the past four hours, I’ve had somewhere around six shots of tequila, a quarter gallon of vodka, and at least a six pack of beer. In other words, I’m drunk as shit. Totally guilty of WUI: Writing Under Intoxication. Pretty universally a bad idea. (see: drunk texting).

By time this gets to you though, weeks or months or even years from now, sitting in your living room, or at your office…

Quarter Life Crisis is Here! (In a Good Way)

Quarter Life Crisis is Here! (In a Good Way)

Final Cover 1

It always baffles me how the human mind works in certain situations. I’ve been talking about/promoting Quarter Life Crisis for so long now that it’s become something of a myth to me. Even though I can pull it up on my computer whenever I want and look through it (which I’ve told myself not to do anymore because if I find any mistakes I’m going to lose my shit), even though I just recently had a…

Quarter Life Crisis Book Launch

Quarter Life Crisis Book Launch


First of all, I’d like to thank everybody who came out to the Quarter Life Crisis book launch on Friday.

Ended up being a really good time. Ate some food, read a couple of chapters from the novel, sold and signed about forty books. Overall a great way to begin the process of getting this thing out there. I’ve got pictures up right here, or just click on the photos tab in the menu bar above.

My Own Quarter Life Crisis

slumbering old manAt 30, I can’t very well claim to be having a quarter life crisis, unless I plan on living to 120 years old (a cool thought, but that sounds…just…exhausting).

I do, however, vividly remember my own quarter life crisis, mostly because it didn’t end too long ago. Also, (surprise surprise) it pretty much mirrored the crisis of Sean, one of the main characters in Quarter Life Crisis: A Novel.

What I…

Alright. First of all, it’s been a while. Hope everybody’s summer’s going good. If you live in South Florida, hope these summer storms haven’t drowned or electrocuted you yet (seriously, it’s been like a daily Armageddon out here). Down to business:

Everything Matters


There’s really not much that can be said about this book that hasn’t  been said already in the seemingly million reviews it’s gotten. Yet I join the flock of fans when I say that this is probably one of the greatest pieces of literature I discovered while in grad school.

Imagine you were born with a voice in your head that told you things about people’s pasts and futures that nobody could/should…

Love and Other Near-Death Experiences


Sitting here looking at the advanced copy of Quarter Life Crisis, I started thinking about how much my reading preferences have changed over the years (and, as a result, my writing preferences). Because I’m the type of guy who sits around thinking about shit like that. Sidetrack: check out the book:

When I was a kid, thrillers and horrors were King. Stephen King, to be exact (I’ve got two…
