J.R.’s first book, Sex and the Single Dad, will be available in paperback in November and on Kindle shortly after.  Pre-sale info available soon.

Raising a middle school daughter on your own while attempting to date and work shouldn’t be a daunting task, but J.R. finds a way to make it funny, and to have you asking yourself, “Did he really do that?”

The book is a collection of essays from the award-winning blog of the same name that ran from 2009-2012.
