Carey Lewis traded a mundane job in Toronto, Canada, in favor of a backpacker life of nomadic travel. He can be spotted with his beautiful fiance somewhere in Southeast Asia, drinking coffee and scribbling furiously into a notepad while cursing his credit card debt and writing about bad guys that are cooler than he'll ever be.

At what age do you finally feel like you’re that age? I’m 39… Jesus, that’s painful to say. I’m about to be 40. FORTY. That’s pretty painful to say out loud, or least see it in type. I’m a full grown adult, and have been by say, twenty years. Where did those years go?


But I don’t feel 40. I don’t feel 39. I feel like I’m still 16, or at the most 25. Man, I just can’t identify with my age. The th...
