I love books! From my earliest memories, I loved being read to and then reading practically every book in my elementary school library. There’s something about taking a little trip into a wonderful story that is its own unique pleasure. Over the years, my favorite authors have provided me with glimpses into worlds I would never have known had I not picked up their books. From Beverley Cleary to Lavyrle Spencer to Jodi Piccoult to Anita Shreve and so many others, I am grateful they chose to become storytellers. A great story has the power to move, change and shape its readers. To me, that’s an honorable calling and a task I aspire to. Knowing someone might take the time to open my book and spend a few hours with characters I have come to love, is still an amazing thing to me.
I”m Only Human After All is a memoir of my first two years of high school in which I was a bullied. Throughout the course of this reflective memoir readers will get a inside look at the painful reality that many young adults face.
Readers who like The Perks of Being a WallFlower will enjoy I’M ONLY HUMAN AFTER ALL.
My inspiration for writing this book was to take a negative time in my life and make something positive out of it. From sharing my experiences with being bullied, I want to reach out to others and raise awareness.
I became an author with the notion of having my voice heard. Through my writings I aim to help others in life by providing insight by the sharing of my own life experiences. Just knowing that I am making a difference makes the long hours worth it.

The dead girl stood in a predatory crouch and roared. Blood cascaded out of her mouth and splashed against the dock as she moved toward me. Her face was beaten, her body sliced, and there was nothing left of the woman she once was except the vague phantom of beauty now shrouded by horror. She would consume me.
The boat’s motor sputtered to life.
My arms trembled as the bat shook beside me. The zombie girl’s feet rumbled the dock beneath us as she charged. Every ounce of strength in my body dissipated to leave me helpless and vulnerable. I wanted to jump in the boat, but then nothing would stop the creature from jumping in behind me. The natural instinct of fight or flight demanded that I stay and fight to keep my girls safe, but my body revolted and refused to do anything but let me die. At least my death might save Kim and Annie. I closed my eyes and prepared for the inevitable end.

Super heroes always get the bad guy. This time it’s debt!
Book Description: Debt Heroes walks you through the stages of paying off your debt. It uses examples of how 21 ordinary people got into and out of large amounts of debt. Collectively the Debt Heroes paid off over $1.7 million dollars in debt. Based on their experiences, the book looks at 6 lessons you can learn about what gets you into debt and 6 ways you can get out of debt.
Those who liked Total Money Makeover, Zero-Debt, and Debt-Free Forever will enjoy GET OUT OF DEBT LIKE THE DEBT HEROES.
Author’s Inspiration: My co-author, Jeff Rose, is a certified financial planner who started a project called “The Debt Movement” to help thousands of people combine to pay off $1 million in debt in 3 months.
I wrote this book to help support the Debt Movement because I wanted to set people up for success. Many other books about getting out of debt tell the reader they must do things a certain way in order to get out of debt, without knowing the reader’s personal situation. If a person isn’t able to follow those steps they feel like they failed.
Debt Heroes gives the reader 21 examples of how people got into and out of massive amounts of debt, then lets the reader choose the one (or ones) that are most applicable to their own personal situation.

I’ve been a student of personal finance since I was 12 years old. My grandfather hooked me on investing by giving me shares of Wal-Mart stock for my birthday.
I’ve been writing about money on my Money Smart Life blog for 6 years and I’ve met a lot of great people with amazing stories about paying off debt during that time.
I wanted to share their success stories to help motivate other people to get out of debt and to show that there’s no one “right” way to pay off your debt.
Favorite Food: I have three little kids which makes it tough to go out to dinner anywhere so my favorite place to eat is in our family kitchen 🙂
Favorite Place to Write: Once they’re all in bed at night I go down into my basement office and write into the early hours of the morning.
Favorite Music: I’m a big fan of Spotify because I enjoy a wide variety of music genres and it lets me listen to them all as I write.
Favorite TV show: My kids don’t give me much time to watch television but they can be pretty expensive so they give me lots of inspiration about personal finance topics to cover. When I do have a free moment my wife and I like to catch up on the many episodes of Shark Tank and Survivor we have sitting on our DVR.
