Debra and Robert are both authors. In keeping with our “odd collaborators” theme, Debra writes fiction and Robert writes non-fiction. (He is envious because he would like to write fiction too!)


Debra is the author of two books. Her first book, Kaleidoscope 9  was released in 2015, and The Journey Begins  was released in October, 2018.

The Journey Begins

The Journey Begins is a collection of five stories where the main characters find ways to begin new lives, and is the first book of ten in the docudrama series, “Life On The Road”. These fictional stories borrow from real-life incidents and people on the road (Short Stories from Roads I have Traveled ~ Based on Real Life with Fictional Embellishment). Debra jokes however that the names and circumstances have been changed to protect the guilty innocent.

TO PURCHASE The Journey Begins:

Up next in the series will be “KOKO-Keep On Keeping On” where each of the main characters find ways to build renewed lives on the road.

How To Be A Successful 21st Century Nomad

The number of people who are interested in the nomadic lifestyle grows considerably each year. Fortunately, there are more resources available than ever to help people navigate the transition, but there is still a shortage of “one-stop” resources. This book aims to fill that void.

How To Be A Successful 21st Century Nomad is available as a paperback and as an e-book.

Car Living

Car Living Book Cover

Car living is not for everyone. This is a unique and sometimes challenging lifestyle that most people only do on a temporary basis. The majority of people who live in a car do it only until they can get back into a house or until they can upgrade to a van or RV.

The ideas presented in this book are based on my own experience with living out of a car over the years. These experiences include car dwelling that was voluntary and involuntary, short-term and long-term, urban and boondocking.

My hope with this book is to make your experience easier and, dare I say it, positive.


Minimalism Book Cover

Minimalism. It is a term that has become much more popular in recent years with a number of blogs and more than a few books devoted to the topic. Many people are discovering that the dream they have been sold – that of ever-increasing affluence, unbridled consumerism, and the 50-year corporate 9-5 grind – is at best an elusive fantasy and at worst a nightmare from which there seems no escape. Minimalism, many people find, is the answer.

Minimalism is my contribution to the conversation about voluntary simplicity and, specifically, simplicity of possessions. I have been interested in simple living for as long as I can remember, and have been a minimalist since around 1999. Like many serious minimalists, everything that I own can fit into one bag. I can, and indeed have, packed to move across the country on 30 minutes notice (more than once).

Microbusinesses You Can Start Today

Microbusinesses Book Cover

There has been renewed interest in small, home-based or location-independent businesses in recent years as many people have learned that a job does not provide much security after all. A microbusiness, whether operated full-time or part-time, can increase economic security and provide income while allowing the entrepreneur to engage in work that he or she finds meaningful.

Part I of Microbusinesses You Can Start Today profiles more than 70 small business ideas that are ideally suited to being operated by a solo entrepreneur. Part II includes several chapters exploring marketing and business operations.
