Read full description of the books:
Have you ever sat at work and thought about leaving the rat race behind? Do you secretly question if it all makes sense, fantasizing about moving to a white sand beach in the tropics to live the easy-breezy life in paradise? Well, Norm Schriever did just that. Frustrated and unfulfilled with his comfortable existence in the States, successful businessman Norm Schriever knows there is something more he is supposed to do with his life. So, he quits his job, sells and donates all of his possessions, and moves down to Tamarindo, Costa Rica, with nothing but a laptop and a surfboard, vowing to chase his long-forgotten dream of being a writer. But Norm soon finds that paradise has its dark side, and the perfect life in a little seaside town isn't always as easy as it seems. Whether it's adapting to the local customs and the language barrier, dodging lawless drug traffickers and corrupt cops, or spending "quality time" in a Third World prison, Norm always keeps his sense of humor and forges ahead, intent on finding the paradise he has been looking for. Will Norm achieve his dream, and gain a new appreciation for life, love, and happiness in one of the most beautiful places on earth? Or will he succumb to the jungle heat, scorpions, and machete-wielding marauders? Grab your sunblock and buckle up, because you're in for a gonzo blast of laughter and adventure...south of normal. Norm Schriever is an author, humorist, cultural mad scientist, and enemy of the comfort zone. He grew up in Connecticut and attended the University of Connecticut, where he was never accused of over-studying. He's lived in Colorado and California and backpacked around the world, documented in his first book, Pushups in the Prayer Room. Most recently he's relocated to Tamarindo, Costa Rica, and San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, with only a laptop and a surfboard, where he writes with the intention to make this world a better place.

Read information about the authorNorm Schriever is a Amazon best-selling author, pro blogger, cultural mad scientist, and enemy of the comfort zone. His latest work, "South of Normal," just won a silver medal at the coveted Nonfiction Book Awards.
He 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 to pursue his passion of writing. His first book was written in the sleepy surf town of Tamarindo with the help of his secret weapons: fresh ocean air and Baileys in his morning coffee. He then moved north up the coast to San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua where he wrote "South of Normal," a memoir about that experience. He now lives in Southeast Asia, where he is surviving super typhoons, writing his heart out, and taking photos of everything he eats.
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.
