Following a realization that his life has become monotonous after his divorce, Spencer, a lawyer, joins a free-spirited conservationist, Calleigh, on a spur-of-the-moment 3000 mile car trip to an environmental conference in Oregon.
Within moments of hitting the road, Spencer’s cynical views on life immediately clash with Calleigh’s upbeat personality. Add Calleigh’s perky Pembroke Welsh Corgi and a cast of eccentric characters including a “soul-serving” diner owner and the insufferable Count Stiltsula, and soon they are in for a journey that just might drive them all crazy.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Well, this is my first foray into comedy. I usually write dark fiction. I think I bring some of the seriousness and themes from my dark fiction into the comedy while keeping it enjoyable, it keeps a note of sadness but also hope for these two characters being able to heal through the story.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Three points. The first: write whenever you can. The second: read whatever you can. And the third: take pride in what you write for it will speak volumes about you as a writer. The third to me is very important. Write something that is you and not someone else. And once you’ve written it, take as much time as you can on it to make it your best. Don’t settle for just average quality.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wrote a book several years ago with these two characters that I never finished that was a different genre. Part of the book detailed these two strangers going on this cross-country road trip together. These two stayed in my head and kept begging for their story to be told. I decided a couple years ago that I’d tell it and make the focus of the book the car trip and turn it into a comedy.
