Life Indigo (formerly titled Kasper Mützenmacher’s Cursed Hat) is my debut novel. Originally published by Curiosity Quills Press in 2017, the book is available in print, digital, and audiobook versions. Foreword Clarion Reviews rated the novel 5 out of 5, nominated it as a 2017 Indies Book of the Year Finalist, and shortlisted it for the editor’s prize. Kirkus Review described the novel as “an undeniably imaginative journey” that “keeps the reader eager to uncover its final destination.”
When not wearing my fiction writer hat, I practice consumer protection law in Washington, D.C. Rest assured your tax dollars are hard at work as I battle marketers of “modern miracles” like weight-loss earrings and penile-enhancing herbs. (Please let me know if you spot an ad for penile enhancement earrings.) I graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in philosophy, which, surprisingly, did not qualify me for gainful employment. In short, it was on to graduate school. Well, almost. I spent a year touring with a professional comedy troupe, writing and performing sketch comedy at colleges in the Mid-Atlantic States. After that frolic and detour, it was a blur of law school, falling in love, cats, marriage, a dog, children, a fish, more dogs, another fish, a chinchilla, guinea pigs, and an assortment of uninvited rodents that have since burrowed through the foundation. Storybook.
I live in Kensington, Maryland with my wife, Laura. The chinchilla and guinea pigs have found new homes. The fish is dead.
