"J Dub" Shares His Resolutions

Before we reach the end of the month and resolutions across the country find themselves lost to thoughts of, "I'm just not going to do it ... better luck next year," I want to share the New Year's Resolutions of a couple more of the characters from my series of books.

Today, I would like to focus on the goals that J.W. Schroeder, known as "J Dub," hopes to achieve in 2010. J Dub is the main character in my first novel, Lifetime Loser. He is a family man who watches his dreams of participating in the PGA Tour end with one bad stroke and instead tries to find happiness as the manager of Prairie Winds Golf Course.

1. Take my wife Marcia on a long-overdue vacation to Hawaii. Marcia has been a loyal and supportive partner through the endless hours spent practicing my swing and then through the business dealings in which I got entangled with some shady characters. She deserves some time to relax and be pampered!

2. Look into the possibility of memory erasing. There has to be some kind of therapy out there that will clear bad memories out of my brain! My life will be much better if I never see those mental images of Lew Zerrmann's secret, demented dungeon again. It didn't take too long to realize the man was evil, but what took place in that room of sick fantasies was more than any person should have to witness.

3. See if Tiger Woods needs a stand-in on the circuit. I've seen awards shows at which they ask some B-list celebrities to act as "place sitters" for the big names stars who are not in attendance. I would be willing to take Tiger's place at Augusta. Hey, it doesn't hurt to ask!

Look for resolutions from one more character before the month comes to an end! If you haven't, I hope you will read Lifetime Loser, Finish Line, and Tuey's Course and let me know what you think the future holds for some of my characters.
