Product description

From the Author

...from the author...
...for anyone curious,its one helluva ride,15 minutes of "fame" and a heap of money.For a while there I even believed my own press..very very tempting that, like I was more important than other people..Imagine being flown around the country,having all paid for,being escorted around by people who the week before did Colin Powell or Hilery Clinton..and money!!Talk about seductive.. writing a $100,000 check to the IRS, 3 times what I had ever earned , much less donated to my government of choice in a year.I was a kid in big big toystore and am broke now, but content.My point is, all the "sucess" is fun , an adventure into a realm,but no more.It is in no way worth dreaming about.You will still wake up with yourself in the morning,get pimples,have to fart when it is not appropriate....(and by the way,I met lots of way famous people these last two years,and they are just as unshre as you or I ,and I think generally VERY dissalussioned with a world that thinks THEM so special.) So now I feel a bit like Ishmael on page 1 of MOBY DICK.I own a 50 acre island off wilderness atlantic coast.Gonna sell all(not sparrow!) and live there a year,at least , with my new wife and 11 year old boy(..home school..) and write.I have had adventures. Maybe I will call it "fiction"? I will see what unfololds.. I hope to be"frozen in"for months..., I got no computer(this is the third thing I have ever typed) but do write letters..
