After losing my mortgage business at the age of 57, life did not seem to hold much promise. Especially after also being evicted from my apartment and having my car repossessed. No money, no business, no car, no income, no nothing. Needless to say, it was not exactly the high point of my life. Now at age 61, I managed to reinvent myself with an internet business. I also started writing motivational articles for on-line publications, holding seminars and have a series of videos on YouTube, called Over 50 And Broke and a web site with the same name. All this trying to show people that there is a way back; no matter what age you happen to be.

After all that, I find that I enjoy writing, I enjoy telling stories and expressing my opinion all with a touch of humor. Life is too short, so why not enjoy it while you can, there is no subject that is so serious that you cannot find the humorous side of it and all my books reflect that.

I don't write for the eggheads of the world, I write for the everyday average guy, which is what I am, I will never be a Hemingway, nor do I want to be. My list of books are on Amazon, with more to follow.

I wish everyone great success and happiness, no matter what your age.
