Jacksonville

I’ve made a home in Jacksonville, Florida for more than twenty years. For a somewhat large city, it’s more of a sleepy town where everyone goes to bed around nine o’clock… or so it seems. From my home, I could walk to the Saint Johns River, and the Atlantic Ocean is less than a thirty-minute

SuperStock was a fun company to work for, until the Venture Capitalists took over. I have to be careful here because the VC in charge literally threatened to sue me for $600,000 when I (allegedly) hurt his (alleged) feelings.

Pandering

The only way to make a living being an author in modern times is by pandering to the largest audience in your chosen genre. Do you want to make a living and be famous? Well, then you’re going to have to churn out books every few months, or pay huge social media influencers to claim
