Most people I meet question how much longer civilization can go on like this. It might be that apocalyptic stories are so popular today because there's a sense that we're really messing up. It's a part of the zeitgeist. I write about things that matter to me. If these things matter to you, as well, I'd like to invite you to join me and to do something! I'm focusing on the following three issues, which are related to my novel Patriarch Run. Feel free to sign up for my newsletter below and get involved.

I want to be a good parent. I want to be a good partner to my spouse. And I want to be a good friend. But there is a disparity between who I am and who I want to be.
