Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.

My latest book, The End

image

Hi All!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
I just finished my latest and it’s been quite a journey researching this and getting down on paper (or nowadays on Word). Being a native New Yorker and having been effected by the events of 9/11 and Hurricane Sandy, watching how Katrina devastated New Orleans, and just watching TV shows like The Walking Dead, made me not only want to, but need to write this book. It’s a serious subject with influences of pop culture (and thanks to my son, video games) thrown in to make you chuckle here and there. I’m only publishing it at 99¢ for a very short time and I wanted to let all my faithful followers, colleagues and friends know asap! Thanks for all your support and if you get a chance to read it, let me know! 🙂

For my friends in the U.S., you can grab a copy here:

Thanks so much and make it a great day! 🙂
