More About the Author

I live and work in Sacramento, California. I have a BA from CSU Sacramento. My wife Nancy and I have been together for 28 years, and have 6 wonderful grandchildren.

My fourteen philosophical/political/spiritual novels, 'The Quest for the Inner Human,' 'Liberty Means Freedom for All,' 'Another Jesus, Another Spirit, Another Gospel,' 'And With All Your Mind,' 'Three Perspectives: Jewish, Christian, and Muslim,' 'Tattered Pilgrims,' 'Multicultural Christmas,' 'After the New Age,' 'Saved by Philosophy,' 'Josue: Prisoner at Shalem,' 'Beyond Heaven and Earth,' 'Three Brothers,' 'Utopia On the Sixth Floor,' and 'Work, Death, & Taxes' are available on Amazon, as is my nonfiction book 'Inquiries: Philosophical,' and the partially-autobiographical children's books 'Family Lessons,' 'More Family Lessons,' and 'Further Family Lessons.'

I firmly believe in getting "both sides" of an issue, which is why (as an Amazon "Top 100" reviewer) I make "positive" book reviews on both pro/con sides of many issues.

I welcome e-mail from readers of my books, book reviews, and/or Listmania lists.

Format: Paperback
"Work, Death and Taxes" is kind of refreshing. Refreshing might be a strange choice of word for a story taking place in a grim near-future where people working 9 hours a day, six days a week are considered slackers, the streets are controlled by gangs and the hero slaves contententedly away on a monster d-base that will lock his co-workers even deeper into their 1984/Brazil world. But refreshing it is; finding human spirit where none has a right to be.
Said hero, Rand, is, of course a corporate drone. But as things progress begins to push into shadows he formerly would never have even noticed. Sometimes being dragged by circumstances, sometimes probing with a barely subdued glee, he find his way places he would never have believed earlier. And besides "No time. Got to get back to work." But go he does.
Redemption is what is hoped for by a reader of this genre, and they won't be disappointed, and a number of the readers will find the location of the story strangely familiar too. But all of us who have ever thought as Rand "Work. It seems like it never ends." will find a good read here.

Format: Paperback
"Work, Death and Taxes" is well written, interesting and a quick read. Having worked in an office myself I could relate to the storyline and found myself laughing out loud at the subtle humor that is present throughout the book. I would recommend this book to anybody, but it should be mandatory reading for all those who have worked in an office.

The book's author, Steve Propp, paints an increasingly realistic picture of how a person's job can become their entire life. Set in the early decades of the 21st century this book will grab your attention and have you wondering if the colossal societal events which transpire are really going to happen. Propp is able to shape the book's main character, Rand, into a protagonist that you can't help but cheer for. Overall, Propp's imagination and enjoyable writing style make this book work.

It should be noted that I have already bought the sequel to this book: "Utopia on the 6th Floor."

Format: Paperback
This book had an interesting premise,a future society where "lifers" work 80+ hours a week and live at their jobs. Propp's use of irony and the convincing setting kept me reading. The plot moves right along, and I enjoyed reading this book.
