Read Sample

Between studying for my Master’s degree in Education and teaching really smart students in Seoul, South Korea, I’ve discovered that when I do have a little bit of time off, my happy place is a small, mostly deserted island in Thailand (Ko Jum), and I find that living in a bungalow for a few weeks right on the beach is the perfect place for me to focus without any distractions. Also, since the only thing there is a small restaurant, a beach, and a dirt road leading to a village which is five miles away, there’s not much to do besides swim, read, and write.

My first attempt at writing and finishing a book became T.A.G., The Assassination Game, a 600 page novel split among the viewpoints from four different players. It was based on something I wished was real, but I was tired of reading books with protagonists who were all good, and antagonists who were clearly bad. Personally, I liked the story, but it wasn’t ready for the public. However, I’ve realized that it makes more sense to give each character their own mini-novel, and so T.A.G. will be released by the end of March.

After that I wrote a book based on the idea ‘what if imaginary friends weren’t so imaginary?’ That was all hand-written on two notepads in a hammock on an island in Thailand, and it’s still unfinished. Usually, when my vacation ends, I stop writing since there are too many other distractions in life – unfortunately. Hopefully, that one, too, will be finished someday.

Boys For Sale, and it’s follow-up novel which is brilliantly named Boys For Sale 2, were inspired by a speech/presentation given by David Batstone in Seoul in January of 2011. I was shocked by how many children are bought and sold as sex slaves and the things that happen to them…and I was moved by how much some people give in order to save these children. One of his anecdotes led me to the character of Tavi, and as I imagined what he had to go through to get to where I met him in my mind, the story just seemed to write itself…
