Financing Your Life is a novel that follows four families as they struggle to overcome debt, spending addiction, and unrealistic expectations in order to create financial security.

Toby and Shannon, two professionals battling a layoff and personal spending demons, must find a way to work together with honesty—a proposition that’s tougher than Toby expected.
Blake and Christine, a newlywed couple in a hurry to start living the good life, whether they can afford it or not, work together to figure out how to get the house they dream of while starting a family and battling depression.
Marcie and Kurt, two young parents struggling to keep up in an image-obsessed world, must decide whether “fitting in” is more important than financial security.
