It was at a very early age when I, Douglas Esper, (your friendly neighborhood author) realized I had a passion for the written word. As a youngster, I couldn't get enough books to satisfy my desire to read and to this day, I still own many books my parents got for me. In school I gravitated toward reading and writing to the point teachers grew impatient with me for writing stories in class.
The passion and drive to read and write continues to this day and my goal of feeling comfortable in my own writing skin seems within reach. I've self-published 2 picture books for kids, Sammy's Birthday Surprise and The Mystery of the Flying Tomatoes, a few short stories, and my debut novel, A Life of Inches, will be released by @LimitlessPublishing spri

Ideas are constantly running through my brain and I don't think I have enough life left to get them all on paper, let alone the ideas I'll have in the future. now, that's not to say that every idea is awesome and would make a compelling novel, but they might work for song lyrics, short stories, blog posts or even never completed backstory for a character. If I reach a point where I have no ideas to explore, it will be an ugly day.(less)

I will add that I feel disconnected from the buzzing hive and hub of society and also from myself at times. adding those two things together, I think I express myself better with stories than I do with actions or my own words. and, I prefer it that way. spending the time to translate what I feel and observe into a fictional story is a fascinating process that I am excited to be a part of and learn from.(less)

I am slightly biased...I lived this book. I hope you'll give me a chance to try and explain what Chuck and i tried to do and the obstacles we faced along the way. It's not pretty. It doesn't have a happy ending...I am not a good salesman.
