Hello readers! Book #3, The Uncomfortable Truth About Money, is now available for pre-order. The publishers will release it just before the holiday season. This book is non-fiction, like my first one, Raising a Thief, which is about being a parent. Now I am working on a sequel to Master, Minion, which is fiction.
