Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
I currently have several books in the pipeline. Two are novels including one satire about a down-to-earth guy who decides he's Not Gonna Take It Anymore. The other is a horror novel about a young man who must keep the exact same change in each pocket or very bad things will happen. To find out more, consider supporting my work at Writing books is difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. Believe it or not, corporate publishers are not lined up to publish comedic works, especially social satires that have fun with Social Justice Warriors like Maggie, the Radiated Lesbian Nun. Many sites have banned me completely. Also in the works is a non-fiction work (I prefer the word 'faction') analyzing the phenomenon of Political Correctness. Not yet completed.

For background about me and my writing, you can hear a radio interview from 2017 at .
What motivated you to become an indie author?
The Political Correctness of the publishing industry.
