What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have a mild anxiety disorder and wanted to explore it more fully through my writing. Also, I was being personally affected by the rise in opioid deaths in the USA, which I deal with in the novel.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I imagined the characters. I based the book on a screenplay I wrote five years ago.
Robert Krieger’s life is quickly falling apart. He’s been fired from his job, split with his sexy girlfriend, and has a controlling overbearing mother he feels obligated to call at least once a week. As a result, he’s developed a distressing anxiety disorder.
Robert lends money to an acquaintance across the hall in his building, a small-time drug dealer named Skids. When Skids is later assaulted by enforcers working for the Dragons, an inner-city drug gang, he hands Robert a package to hold for him until he either asks for it back, or dies.
Lonely but determined to find a new girlfriend, while jogging one morning Robert meets the beautiful and willowy Lindsay Marriott, whom he awkwardly begins to romance. Not long afterward, he finds himself in a brutal one-man war with the Dragons, who believe Robert has money Skids owes them.
Robert is soon juggling an increasing array of anxiety-heightening issues, which together conspire to wreak havoc on his fragile sanity.
Gritty and violent, ODDBALL IN 3G is a psychological thriller that’s also surprisingly funny.
