And what horrifying secret awaits them at the river’s end? At home, Susan dates the Boyfriend-from-Hell as Dick Fink tries to steal her job.

Paperback: $19.95
e-book: $5.95
(s&h included)


After one too many humorous rejections from the New Yorker, Lemont starts his own blog. But will a breaking scandal force him into the spotlight before he’s ready? Will his unbelievable interviews with Hurricane Katrina survivors land him a Pulitzer, or a padded room? And why are socially-awkward Federal agents watching his every move? Meanwhile, C-Dog devises a half-dozen shameless ways to raise funds to publish his new CD. But can he kill off his newfound conscience before it destroys his misogynist street cred? And how can Susan Garcia win her promotion if she’s so busy keeping an eye on her backstabbing assistant and living in denial about Lemont’s life-shattering secret?


Book 2: Another Stereotype Bites the Dust
U.S. ORDERS – $15
Book 2 picks up where the first one left off. Lemont’s recent disastrous date with the Crazy Vegetarian Chick and his constant rejection by the New Yorker have him feeling down, but Lemont is maintaining, and things are looking up. Clyde decides to become his own boss, Susan’s on the fast-track for promotion, and Lemont finds a new reason to keep on writing, the New Yorker be damned. Amidst failed love connections, voter disenfranchisement, a nosy neighbor with a big secret, and a surreal and cathartic visit from a long-lost relative, Lemont, Susan and Clyde keep on keepin’ on. And contrary to popular conspiracy theories, they keep all their civil liberties — at least according to the wiretaps, videotape, and transcribed e-mails compiled by Federal Agent Murph.
Book 1: Thank God for Culture Clash
Download the eBook from iTunes

In an America where the Declaration of Independence has become a “whiny Liberal conspiracy theory,” three friends try to make their dreams come true. Lemont Brown’s constant war with writers block and rejection letters doesn’t deter him from dreaming of a byline in The New Yorker. Susan Garcia’s a rising star at her advertising agency, but her duplicitous assistant is out for her job. C-Dog’s an undiscovered rapper who hasn’t gotten anywhere in life ’cause he’s too busy bumming $$$ off Lemont, hustling in “that alley over that way,” or hooking up with Paula Abdul. A relentless exposé of the hypocrisies, the injustices and the hilarious absurdities of American culture and politics.
