In his career as a professor Cash has stated:
"What can be more satisfying than teaching and interacting with bright highly motivated young people? My objective is for my students to learn the skill sets they will need to succeed in their chosen professions, while developing critical thought processes. Being able to impart knowledge in combination with humor is the key to being an effective educator. When I teach my students I try to have as much fun as I can despite my subject matter (accounting and taxation). I hope that by wearing my enthusiasm on my sleeve it will rub off on my students. Enthusiasm is contagious. Because I enjoy being in the classroom, so do they."
In his career as a novelist Cash states:
"A day does not go by when I cannot wait to open my laptop and write another chapter, a page, or even a paragraph of my latest novel. It is so cool to create characters who exist only in my imagination but like magic now live on the written page. I want to share all of them with my readers.

Cash Kushel brings Steven Kaye the professor from “Lotto Trouble” back in this fast paced thriller. Kaye is enjoying country club life in Boca Raton, Florida, and is focusing on an upcoming golf tournament. His son, Ross, enlists his help, asking for an unusual favor.
Kaye’s new task is to drive a presidential candidate Senator Dallas Dunn for the entire weekend through South Florida to political rallies and fundraising venues, culminating with the presidential debate at the University of Miami. Although well respected, the time for a Dunn candidacy may have passed him by. Considered by many to be too old for the job he is mired in fifth place in the polls as he tries one last time to secure his party’s nomination. Kaye respects the candidate but is hesitant to take on the assignment because he is directionally handicapped. His major challenge will be getting the candidate to each location on time, despite his inherent bad sense of direction.

Due to a quickly changing landscape these factions eschew a political solution and instead adopt strategies calling for the senator’s death.
