I am an Irish gent living on the east side of Austin, Texas, with my wife Kim. After 30 years pounding rocks in corporate America it was time to move on and chase a dream. The written word has always meant a great deal to me. I am one of those who writes an e-mail and saves it to draft, then rewrites it again until it screams the message I want the reader to understand with complete clarity. Luckily my writing is more personal these days, 'corporate speak' is not welcome, though it's like kicking a bad habit that won't go away easily.
My first book (Yardstick: A Life Measured) was published in March, 2014 as an ebook and paper back. The idea for the story came from a good buddy who pushed me to get it done. For that I am eternally grateful.
My second book (The Independent) was published in January, 2015 as an ebook and paperback. It's the second Coach Bob story with a positive message about 'earning it' in life.
