More About the Author
Norm grew up in Connecticut and graduated from the University of Connecticut, where he was never accused of over-studying, and went on to live in North Carolina, Colorado and most recently in Northern California.
Dissatisfied with a conventional existence, Norm sold or donated all of his possessions and moved down to Costa Rica in 2011. In the sleepy surf town of Tamarindo he pursued his passion of writing, armed with his secret weapons: fresh ocean air and Baileys in his morning coffee. He then migrated just a chicken bus ride north to San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua, where he settled into a local barrio and wrote "South of Normal" with his puppy, Panda, curled up at his feet. He is currently living in exotic southeast Asia, where he survives super typhoons, writes his heart out and explores other cultures daily.
He sees his words as a way to illuminate the commonalities of human existence, and thereby hopes to leave this planet a little better than how he found it.

Reading Norm's book was a trip down memory lane. It's an easy read. Norm gave the kids a camera and had them take pictures of the most important thing or person in their life and write a sentence about why the subject is important to them. It makes me realize how simple needs are so important to these kids. Needs like water, food, electricity that we so take for granted are just becoming available in the impoverished village 20 minutes from the tourist mecca of Siem Reip.
My favorite sentence in the book is when Norrm states he turned right instead of left and that is how he met Sarin. That's what an adventure is all about, just making the turn and finding out what comes.
Norm is donating funds from the book to the school. Please buy the book to help the kids.
It is very unfortunate though, that many young people (in my country, Philippines) take their education for granted and don't see it's true value.
Kudos to the amazing people who help, helped, and going to help (The Spitlers and others, to many to mention) make this children's lives and their families future a brighter one.
I love the drawings and photos from the children. They show just how grateful these children are for a lot of the things we take for granted.
It is awesome that all the proceeds from this book go directly to the school. After reading this, you will definitely want to do more for them! Thanks, Norm!!
