Tj Baross | 1 comments "Thai Lies" a memoir inspired novel.Secretly married to his Thai girlfriend right out of college, an expat's nine year struggle for acceptance. The journey bounces between the states and Europe and Cambodia and all over Thailand. It's the only travel guide of the country you will ever enjoy reading with stop offs in some secluded diving coves near Malaysia. The only foreigner crazy enough to train and fight muay Thai boxing in the 70's. Just don't forget the sunscreen if you're around the pool. It's over 500 pages. Out on Amazon January 1, 2013. And yeah, I'm still around, living the Peter Pan fantasy.
