I love peanut butter. I mean most people do, but I eat-it-out-of-the-jar-with-a-spoon love it. I also am one of those people who loves both math and reading and writing and has a constant right/left brain battle for control going on. Maybe some day, one of the sides will win. It is quite exhausting.

Outside In was my first novel. My second, the Investment Club is about five broken people who meet at a blackjack table and discover the greatest return comes from what you contribute to others. Hmm...blackjack and fiction? Sounds like the battle wages on.
