For centuries everyone agreed that the world was flat. That is until Ferdinand Magellan (a guy’s guy for sure) sailed his historic lap around the globe. That was a major V-8 moment for a lot of folks. Ferdy expanded his horizons and drew a new map of the world. And it only happened because he lost the list that told him that the earth was flat. Women and men also need to consider … read more
It’s hard to place The Guys’ Guy’s Guide to Love in a particular genre – how do you describe it to people?
Great question. At first agents told me that since I was a guy, I should write a thriller. No, thanks. Then it was, why don’t you write the book with a female protagonist? No, thanks. Then they told me, the title sounds like the book is a non-fiction guide to getting laid. Why don’t you change the … read more
You’ve worked in advertising for the past two decades, what inspired you to turn your hand to literature and write The Guys’ Guy’s Guide to Love?
About ten years ago I was walking across Sixth Avenue when something inside told me that it was time to get serious about my passion for writing. I read every book that I could get my hands on about writing or subjects that interested me and began writing in earnest.
The notion that women are ascending while men are in deep doo-doo has reached a feverish pitch during this highly combustible year. The world economy is broken and we have to admit, no one, and I mean no one, has a solution. So things look bad. But when things look bad, people in the panic room can be a lot more open to change or anything that will get them out of the … read more

If you haven’t seen it coming, you haven’t been paying attention. More and more, women are increasingly rising in power and being represented in archetypes such as super heroes, CEOs, cultural and artistic leaders, and world-renowned athletes. Why? Because women are making it happen and you cannot find fault in self-advancement. Is this a good thing? You bet, and it is about time that women have ascended. Even in this fast-paced age of … read more
After you’ve shared a phone call that elevated your new connection to the oral word, it’s time to meet her. This can be the start of something big, or not. You’ll probably know fairly quickly and the odds of it working out are well below fifty percent. That’s not to say that there’s something wrong with either of you. It’s just that if life were that simple, the online ladies in waiting would all … read more
Things have changed. No doubt. And that’s for just about everything that takes place between the sexes or within the same sex. Every other movie or TV show that stars a woman these days seems to feature a buff chick toting a shotgun, dressed in a wife beater, about to take revenge out on the bad dudes who harmed her family. Up until a few years ago, this was a genre reserved for … read more
After you’ve created and polished your online dating profile to the point where you’d even date yourself, distinguished it with pics worthy of a mash up of In Touch and Vanity Fair, and managed to score a written response from a woman who looks like Angela Jolie, thinks like Oprah, and who your Mom would love to hang out with (not that hanging with Angelina or Oprah is bad), you are ready to take the connection … read more
