Tell us about yourself and your books.:
I am an avid learner as well as researcher of many topics including but not limited to health, nutrition, herbalism, European folk culture and simple living. I have lived in many places gaining experience, knowledge and testing that knowledge out firsthand to share with people like you. I have a store called The Intriguingly Awkward Shop. This shop includes merchandise of your favorite taglines from my books. I have written a total of 2 books…..so far.
Health & Not Screwing It Up is your go-to guide on bettering your overall health physically, mentally and beyond that. It focuses on topics such as nutrition, fitness, mental health, minimalism and how to deal with criticism all with a dash of wit and humor.
Money & Why'd You Have To Spend It On That? is another go-to guide on how to achieve financial fitness and freedom through very easy and simple steps literally anyone can do. This book also is laced with my awkward humor and wit.

Besides my awkward way of thinking…..nah.
What authors have influenced you?
Lately I have been on a Ayn Rand and James A Michener kick.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Research, network, and get started today not someday. Someday is not a day of the week silly.

What’s next for you as a writer?
I have a fiction series in mind. Maybe that will be next or another How-To. You will have to stay tuned…
How well do you work under pressure?
It depends on my mood that day. Sometimes like a drill sergeant, other times not so gracefully but whatever work that needs to get done under that pressure will get done. It's just a matter of how that is up for grabs.
How do you decide what tone to use with a particular piece of writing?
Usually there's a common tone: Intriguingly Awkward.
