Sense of Direction

Rate this book
What starts out as a routine assignment for Professor Steven Kaye becomes a race to survive and find a new sense of direction.

Kaye is enjoying country club life in Florida when his son Ross volunteers him as the chauffeur to presidential candidate Senator Dallas Dunn. During a weekend of political rallies, fundraisers and a presidential debate, Kaye must think on his feet to protect the senator and himself from evil forces.

Recent national events prompt Dunn to make a bold speech about securing America’s borders, triggering attempts by his many detractors to sabotage his candidacy. Due to a highly charged political landscape, various factions adopt strategies that call for the senator’s demise.

A Mexican druglord, a Vietnam vet, a distressed defense contractor, a handsome cartel henchman, and former members of the Bulgarian Secret Police all stand in the way as the senator tries one last time to secure his party’s nomination.

Cash Kushel

10 books3 followers
Paul Kushel was born in the Bronx, New York and was raised in Fair Lawn, New Jersey. He received an undergraduate degree from the Stern School of Business ( NYU ) where he was also awarded an MBA. After working at Arthur Andersen in New York City and becoming a CPA, he ventured off to Austin, where he attended the University of Texas earning a Ph.D.

Returning to New York he joined the faculty at NYU -Stern for eight years and won various teaching awards. In 1988 he traveled three miles north to Fordham University and has served on the faculty there for twenty-five years at the Graduate School of Business. He has been an award-winning professor at that institution as well.

He is well known in banking circles internationally as Cash Kushel, and has been using that moniker for three decades. Cash Kushel is his designated pen name, and he proudly inscribes that signature whenever he autographs the four novels he has written.

For more details on how Cash got his name – check out the blog-post that addresses that subject.

Cash is married to his wife Ellen and has three grown sons. He lives in Boca Raton, Florida.

Cash's views on his carer as a professor:

“What can be more satisfying than teaching and interacting with bright highly motivated young people? My objective is for my students to learn the skill sets they will need to succeed in their chosen professions, while developing critical thought processes. Being able to impart knowledge in combination with humor is the key to being an effective educator. When I teach my students I try to have as much fun as I can despite my subject matter (accounting and taxation). I hope that by wearing my enthusiasm on my sleeve it will rub off on my students. Enthusiasm is contagious. Because I enjoy being in the classroom, so do they.

Cash's take on his career as a novelist:

“A day does not go by when I cannot wait to open my laptop and write another chapter, a page, or even a paragraph of my latest novel. It is so cool to create characters who exist only in my imagination but like magic now live on the written page. I want to share all of them with my readers.
