About Me

Nobody Knows, They Just Want You to Think They Do is a collection of thoughts and beliefs on a variety of topics that are very personal to me. I was born in 1956, I am a white male (though I have always preferred being as tan as possible), and I spent the majority of my life, Mormon.

As an average guy with a not-so-average life, you can learn a thing or two from me by reading my book. Believe me; I understand how difficult it is to survive in this chaotic world, which is why I wrote a book addressing life’s common and uncommon dilemmas.

Let me share with you some interesting observations about real-life issues that all of us have faced, or will face as we grow older. The chapters of this book are broken down into short ones so you can easily read one per day—or you can finish the book in one weekend!

In this memoir, I touch on subjects with a bit of humor such as chapters What's Up with Today's Youth?, Jack of All Friggin Trades and Why Are Some People Such Assholes? Additionally, chapters on  Fathers and Losing a Child are reflective, contemplative and were difficult for me to share.

Knowing we live in a world full of cynics, and that what I have written may not appeal to all is tough for a self-described people person. Still, I'm hopeful the topics I have chosen will cause the reader to reflect on their own feelings and beliefs.

Allow me to take you on a journey through my book. A journey through my life, my own unique experiences, and resolutions that I believe readers will find helpful. And remember; Nobody Knows, They Just Want You to Think They Do.
