Here are my latest publications and writerly activities: The Nervous Breakdown I’m back, baby! After an eight-month hiatus, I finally wrote something for TNB. The Fear Factor: One Man’s Mission to Scare Himself Every Day. I interviewed my brother about his Scare Yourself Every Day project. 51 Hours, There and Back Again. I recalled my [...]
April is my birthday month, and this birthday is a big one for me. I won’t reveal what it is except to say that it’s an age Jack Benny didn’t like much either. To celebrate, I’m giving away e-book copies of my memoir! That’s right, instead of a whole three dollars, my memoir is now [...]
So I joined Google Plus. My brother invited me so I said, “Sure, why not?” Plus with all the buzz, I was curious about it. Now? Wah-wah-waaaah. I’m not sure what to do with it, aside from reposting my tweets and/or FB statuses. Right now it seems like a pain to do so, and to [...]

Worrying because it’s unfamiliar territory and I’m afraid to fail, so much so that I woke up at five [...]

There are four to choose from: 120 Words To Make You Sound Intelligent 120 Job Interview Words You Should Know 120 Words That Are Fun to Say 120 Words You [...]

Hey look! Somehow my book is number three in Lulu’s Top 100 eBooks in Biographies and Memoirs this week! I do not question such matters, but merely take advantage of them like the opportunistic rat that I am. By the way, got three bucks to spare? Help make my book number one!
