Lost In Seattle

If you have enjoyed reading some of the work posted on this blog you may be interested in reading my novel.

A nice guy, fifty-three years old, gets downsized—out of work 3 years. Willie Brenner loses everything white middle class has given: savings, wife & daughter, home . . . even his dog. He moves into a low rent neighborhood and floating world of ethnicities and lifestyles previously unknown. Men and women working to survive at a near poverty level of existence. Temps jobs: heavy lifting, cleaning—fumes . . . jobs that can kill you, back problems and accidents.  Readers will follow a runaway mother with Alzheimer’s, a bank robber (The One Armed Bandit), one serial killer, two lawyers, a motorcycle gang, two artists, a Buddhist abbot (Iron Ma) and a braless barista who loves sex. There are some good times with the bad and new friends held by the bonds of common labor. A mid-life man maintains his sense of humor and rediscovers himself, Lost in Seattle.
