Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am passionate about financial literacy. I have written two books on this subject. One is a memoir about how I accumulated $1 million by the age of 40 running the rat race and the other is a simple, easy to read handbook guiding new investors through the basics of investing. I live in the Southwest with my wife.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My book is called Rat Race Millionaire. I wrote it because many people believe that attaining financial security requires some sort of secret information. They believe that only people who win the lottery, have a high paying job, or come from money can become millionaires. I wrote this book to dispel that myth. I became a millionaire before the age of 40 working a regular 9 to 5 job. My book tells readers how I did it and about some of the setbacks I made it through along the way.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I wrote this book while working 10 to 12 hours a day at a regular job.
