Frankie Jones is searching for something—something elusive.

Abandoned as an infant by his father, orphaned after his mother died when he was a child, Frankie grows up tough, edgy, and street smart. The quintessential self-made man, he lives life to the fullest.

Frankie becomes a journalist, hoping to be the next great American writer. While in Boston, he meets Mercedes Brewster. Refined, sophisticated, and from a prominent New England family, she is the complete opposite of Frankie. He can’t help falling for her, but can he keep his wanderlust in check?

Yet, it is the American Dream that Frankie seeks more than anything. Get the career. Get the success. And most importantly, get the girl. In California, Frankie becomes friends with Owen Brookes. Gutsy, brazen, and at times reckless, Owen is Frankie’s alter ego. It is Owen who challenges Frankie’s belief in the American Dream. Will either of them achieve what they want? What must they give up in pursuit? Some lessons you learn the hard way, but it is how you react in the face of adversity that ultimately matters. Frankie Jones is a rich tapestry of hope, love, friendship, and betrayal—a story of life itself.

Frankie Jones is searching for the American Dream.

Do you write full time or part time

Part time.

How do you structure your day when you write

I almost always write in the morning. A good cup of coffee and peace and quiet works best for me.

Why do you write? (Example; For fun, to make extra money, a personal experience you want to share with the public)

My primary motivation was, and still remains, the enjoyment that comes from conceiving a story and then expressing it in words. Dialogue is key to the story, but ultimately character development and narrative prose are extremely critical.
