Ever since I can remember, I've wanted to be an author and follow the scholarly pursuits that have been calling out to me. It's fucking funny how life throws those spit balls instead. For the last 22 years, I've done everything EXCEPT write full time.
I'm a graduate of the University of Oklahoma and I hold a BA in History with a focus on Judaic Studies. Truth is, I've learned more about the world and how things work while standing in front of bar doors as a Bouncer and building people's bodies as a Personal Trainer. In all seriousness, what in a good God fuck is a guy with a degree in Judaic Studies going to do with a degree like that when being a Rabbi isn't an option?
My life is no frills, but I won't claim that it's been a 'hard life' like many artists who document their whiney 'personal struggles'. What I've learned and how I can back that position is twofold; The reader of my books can relate to my stories because that's fucking life. Moreover, in addition to the first point, what I write is entertaining because the situations I document are situations that happen every day to all of us. The face of the situation might be different, but the situation doesn't deviate from what you, the reader will wake up to every morning and tell your friends and loved-ones about.
Read my stories folks. You will be shocked and amused.
What's the story behind your latest book?
This is from factual information taken from when my wife and I were forced to go back to careers we swore we would never go back to.
I was in a position that put me back in front of the Bar, bouncing. My wife went back to porn.
Writing was my way of handling shit. "Married to Porn" was the result. Nobody has ever truly published a work that explains the human side of porn, or the perspective of the spouse who is not part of the world of the Porn Industry. I saw the reality and the humanity, so I wrote a fucking book.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I work better on my own...
That is not to say that if a publishing house like Simon & Schuster or Idea Books reached out to me I wouldn't pursue that option, but the idea of self-publishing seemed like the right springboard at the right time.
Porn is society's secret obsession. Women in porn captivate millions with their image and on-screen personas. But, who are these women? Are they your neighbors, or are they the seductresses that they are built up to be because of their on-screen image?
Married to Porn tells the true story of a Porn Star, Her Husband, and their Family as seen through her Husband's eyes. This is our truth.
