Sometimes writer, sometimes executive, I ride the economy barebacked. My unvested stock options have touched the multiple millions and then then crumbled, worthless. Right now I'm fully invested in my own start-up, wishing one moment that I wasn't and the next, glad that I am whatever the final outcome will be. Writing is for me a way to find if not meaning, then comedy in the daily struggle. One smile is worth at least the cost of a book. Enjoy.

Thicke & Thin is a darkly comic novel about friendship and sacrifice. Within the frenetic world of an upstart public company, executive titles often mask an underlying incompetence and corruption. Amid the struggle, a burnt out CFO is faced with making the ultimate choice: resign in disgrace or watch his friend be sacked. Courage and loyalty were never his strong suits. How will he choose?
