Over the course of his life, William Sirls has experienced both great highs and tremendous lows--some born of chance, some born of choice. Once a senior vice president at a major investment firm, he was incarcerated in 2007 for wire fraud and money laundering, where he learned a great deal more than he ever bargained for. Life lessons involving faith, grace, patience, and forgiveness are evident in his writing. He is the father of two and makes his home in Southern California.

I also think many of them have a hard time keeping realistic expectations about the commercial success of their work. Everybody wants to be a New York Times Bestseller, but our first goals should be sharing the right message with readers while trying to please God. If we do those two things, rarely will we be disappointed.(less)

Eric awoke from his nightmare, relieved that he didn't really have to chose which of his two children was never born. The next morning Eric Jr. was gone.
William Sirls answered Goodreads's question: William Sirls
I would love to visit Maycomb, Alabama ... the 1930's setting of "To Kill a Mockingbird." Minus the story's core racism, it seems like a place where life is simple and a place where values are on the family.
