About the Author

Norm Schriever is an author, humorist, cultural mad scientist, and enemy of the comfort zone.  He just released "South of Normal," a gonzo blast of laughter and adventure about a year living in the tropical paradise of Tamarindo, Costa Rica.  His first book, "Pushups in the Prayer Room," is a wild, irreverent account of a year spent backpacking around the world. 

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 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.

Norm Schriever is an author, pro blogger, cultural mad scientist, and enemy of the comfort zone. His latest book, "South of Normal," is a gonzo blast of laughter and adventure about a year living in the tropical paradise of Tamarindo, Costa Rica that has earned him a place on the Amazon.com best seller list and won a silver medal with the Nonfiction Book Awards. His first book, "Pushups in the Prayer Room," is a wild, irreverent account of a year spent backpacking around the world.

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.
