I am a coding designer, songwriter, meditator, father and now a novelist. These are my first novels. 

Sometimes inspiration taps you on the shoulder for a song, and sometimes it hits you on the head with something a bit more complex. Such a thing happened to me on a bus 5 years ago. I have avoided writing a book since then because I didn't think I was a writer, but the idea would not go away.

I had the choice between being that guy at a party who was always talking about his idea for a novel, or the guy who wrote one. I contemplated dying at any moment with a novel still inside me. Terrified, I put pen to paper in the summer of 2016.

And now, aside from minor edits (I hope), it is done. I hope you enjoy it. I have started on the second book in the series.
