What People Say
“The anticipation of what will happen next makes it almost impossible to put this book down once you pick it up.” – John Noordwijk, Ph.D.
“Great Paybacks” is a great read! ‘kept me up all night, (and a great escape from work all day)…… James “Bonzai” Caruso – Grammy Award Winning Music Producer
“Great Paybacks is a treatise on the downside of the American dream. U.S. society comes with volatile highs and lows; financially, emotionally, romantically. This novel is relatable on various levels for anyone in the 99% of today’s workforce. Searing yet sensitive with dry humor throughout, Great Paybacks is not only a terrific read, but will likely be a topic for many dinner table conversations and book clubs. Well done.” – Beth Kallman Werner, Editor and Publisher, Real Women’s Stories 2018
