Inspiration for books and characters can come from the most unexpected sources. Such was the case when I discovered the original concept for Norbie Finkelstein, a struggling middle school teacher who gets steamrolled by his colleagues, his students, and even his opponents in the ring. Have a look at how one gentle soul in my life inspired another one, and then made it to the dedication page in the first installment of my brand-new series (due out September 19).
ARCs are still available on Net Galley for any bloggers interested in providing an honest review.
You can also add the book to your GOODREADS stack. Happy reading!
