Introducing the Richest Family in AmericaeBook - 2010
"High in the hills above fashionable Montecito, California, slipping in and out of their mansions on Swizzle Stick Road, a ridiculously wealthy family is under siege. A crooked lawyer, a beautiful Chinese pro golfer, and a celebrity-mad plastic surgeon are conspiring to convince the wealthy family's clueless old patriarch to move his factories from Cleveland to China. As the conspiracy clicks into place, the flirtatious pro golfer romances the old billionaire across Europe. But their half-baked romp from Paris to Shanghai catches the attention of the black sheep of the family, and he doesn't like it. The interior decorator and former alcoholic, who is also subject to panic attacks, bravely sashays into action. Anxiously warding off attacks from his eccentric older sisters, the family's youngest son sets out for Cleveland to organize factory workers while the family's unscrupulous son-in-laws throw everything they have at him. What follows is a brutally funny comedy of grandiose intentions, half-baked revenge, heroic upper crust foolishness, and hotly passionate cross-cultural romance. Introducing the Richest Family in America runs a hilarious gauntlet of greed, betrayal and desire as America's richest family teeters precariously on the edge of dissolution and struggles to right itself again.Some reviewer comments:"I loved your daffy characters, they were totally refreshing.
