My current work in progress, Green Bay Outsiders, is about a group of friends who recently completed their undergraduate studies at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay and are facing the real world for the first time as newly graduated adults. Things don’t end up going well for several of them and, in particular, for the protagonist Carl Daniels. He is, however, also the source of disappointment for one of his female friends due to his reluctance to return her romantic affection.
The post-college world can be a scary time. And there will be no shortage of well-meaning advice. A lot of important experiences that new graduates face never get communicated and can only be found out through personal experience. Hence my interest in writing this book. It’s been more than 20 years since I graduated college, so Green Bay Outsiders is not an autobiographical story by any means. But the topic is of great interest to me. Occasionally, I will trace my life decisions back to find out what earlier experiences brought me to where I am today.

The reader’s guide for my novel, Billy Maddox Takes His Shot, is now available. It provides several questions that book groups can rely on for an in-depth discussion of the novel. For purposes of a getting a quick snapshot of what’s inside as well as potential discussion topics, below is a list of questions from the guide. After you’ve reviewed them, you’re encouraged to download the full guide for purposes of sharing it with other members of your book group.
As part of launching the guide, I will also offer any reader who participates in a book group a free copy of Billy Maddox Takes His Shot so that they might consider introducing it to the other members of their group (though, of course, this is not a requirement).
