I am a songwriter. Jim's Big Ego is my band. I am the Jim. We are "the greatest band in the history of recorded music." Google it. I am a coding designer, meditator, father and now a novelist. This is my first novel. 

For most of my life, I've written songs, made albums, played shows, toured around, etc. I've made like 10 albums, written like 200 songs, and I've been happy. Inspiration struck, and I wrote a song.

Well, 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. There will be more.
