'The Wrinkly'. A farcical attempt at early retirement.

'The Wrinkly'. A farcical attempt at early retirement. By Paul Collis. (That's me.)
Tired of the rat race in the stone-faced city and disillusioned with his shallow relationships and meaningless career, Mike Lewis, approaching forty, makes a ridiculous attempt to join a retirement community in Florida. But, instead of a relaxing life of golf and beach-combing, he finds himself dealing with lust, crime, cosmetics – and an identity crisis.

Available at Smashwords in all formats. 45,000 words. Price: $1.99

I'm no Franzen, Larsson or Grisham. But, if you pay to see Farrelly Brothers or Judd Apatow movies, if you ever thought of quitting your job and living a life of leisure, if you enjoy visiting tacky roadside attractions, if you can tolerate even the idea of golf, if you ever wondered what it would be like to live life as a complete fraud – then this book might be worth a couple of bucks to you. And who doesn't like manatees?

Am I the author?

Yes, Dreams, I am the author, and I apologize for not making that clear.
A link to my bio is on The Wrinkly's Smashwords page.
And also at www.thewrinkly.com
Thank you for pointing out my error.
Paul Collis.
