A Life With You details the small moments of life as lived with a partner. Running out of gas, going for a walk around the neighborhood or water fights in the kitchen, the little things are the glue that keep us together over the years and this collection of vignettes aims to rekindle some memories. Read it with a partner and discuss it together if you can, or use your imagination to paint the image of your perfect match. A Life With You is a reminder that our lives aren’t measured in milestones, but in the time between.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The lives that myself and my friends and family live. This series of entries is a collaboration of memories, stories and dreams. Some are almost fully true, some are almost completely false, and a lot of them are mixtures of several things. The little moments that often go unnoticed by everyone except the two people involved.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The book was written for someone that I, at one point, planned on spending my life with, hence the title, ‘A Life With You.’ I am me and she is her, which of course, that doesn’t mean anything to anyone that isn’t her or myself. But she knows who she is and I know who I am, and even though we are us and you are not, you very well could identify with a lot of what goes on in these pages.
Wednesday night, the end of Fall. We’re sitting on the couch watching TV and browsing the internet when you tell me that you want to get up and do something. It’s a little past eleven PM, so I ask you what there is we could do at this time on a weeknight. You say how stores are doing closeouts on summer clothing and we could go look around. Most guys would rather stay home when their girl goes shopping, but I don’t mind, especially at night. Empty stores give that feeling of isolation, like we’re the only people left and we’re scavenging for supplies. We hop in the car and head out, arriving at the store to find about nine cars in the parking lot. Easy listening music plays through the overhead system and it makes me wonder what drives the musician to create the almost inaudible soundtrack of everyone else’s lives. You point out a clearance sign above the shoe section and I head that way, looking back to see you eying a yellow two-piece bathing suit with pink edges.
