AMERICAN DREAMERS the Novel is Here!

I’m thrilled to share my latest novel, American Dreamers, now available for ebook! Please click here to check out this preview and consider buying and sharing if you enjoy this telling tale of a group of young friends trying to navigate the propagandist puppet show we all know so well as the “American Dream”.

Who wouldn’t want a big house in the country next to a money tree?

Four friends, one house, and a slew of obstacles to overcome as they struggle to make ends meet. This is the setting for American Dreamers, but one that is immeasurably complicated by a secret that could either breathe their dreams to life or destroy everything.

Will they be able to overcome their family drama, unhinged treasure-hunting psychics, and the  grind of daily life? Witty, suspenseful, and dramatic, American Dreamers is a story that everyday people from all walks and roads of life can relate to – a story that reveals as much about ourselves as the characters acting out the play of modern American life.

Please CLICK HERE to check out the ebook version. Paperback coming soon too! Again, please share with others if you enjoy what you read as well!

Coffee Seminar: A Cup of Life Lessons

RhetComp @ Stony Brook

Teaching and learning comes in many forms – in this anecdote, Stony Brook University Writing and Rhetoric’s Joe Labriola explains the scholarly value of his end of semester fresh pour over coffee seminar!

The end of the semester is a time of substantial stress – for both students and teachers alike. The former often find themselves immersed within panicked, self-insomnia-forced study sessions, while the latter face the alternate side of the finals madness spectrum: grading. We writing teachers in particular have our work cut out for us. A crude calculation will reveal that on average, one can expect to grade over 350 papers in little more than a two week period, easily totaling at least 2,000 pages.

Now that’s no small beans.

Luckily for us, beans come in all shapes, sizes, and most importantly, flavors. And so, enter the coffee bean: our warm dark friend and savior. There’s a long-form…
