On this episode of Chatting With Sherri we chat with Andy Rickert to chat about his book; Walton 2016.
Along with coaching, I worked as a pizza delivery driver and night club bouncer for 7 years. My experiences during that time inspired me to write my first book, titled Delivery Up: Memoirs of a Pizza Guy. I initially started pleasure writing (History is ALL writing) about my experiences as a coach, lifter, and fighter; but truly fell in love with the craft while describing my experiences as I traveled across Southeast Asia.
Walton 2016 is a dystopian satirical look at the current environment and potential future of America under a president that looks startlingly like Donald Trump. It follows an American refugee on a Merchant ship turned refugee boat as they flee Mad Man Walton and his wall. My inspiration for the book, outside of the current political climate, was a mix of Charlie Chaplins "The Great Dictator" and Dr. Strangelove.
