Carl Ehnis spent a few decades writing soaring marketing prose for a major financial services company. But he was recently liberated to focus on his true passions: writing books and recording music. He has authored the novels Race Riot, MEDICUS, Happy Hour, Verite, and the curious non-fiction project called One Page a Day.

He's a life-long resident of New Jersey, has a wife and kids, two domesticated animals, plus other unwanted vermin taking up residence in the walls of his rambling 100-year old residence. Among his many interests include...well, you'll need to download One Page a Day for the complete list.
