--Author August Jefferson

 Aug Jefferson began his writing career detailing poignant yet humorous coming of age short stories.  Many of the characters and situations from his earlier work were compiled together in his first novel, Simple Solutions.   The title was inspired by a poster Auggie had in his dorm room in college which read, "For Every Complex Problem There is a Simple Solution...And It's Wrong!   Auggie has always presented his stories of young people confronting the challenges of onrushing adulthood in the hope that they might give some light to those suffering through dark periods of anguish and despair.  We enjoy his books, and believe very strongly in the message of hope and transcendance he seeks to impart.  We feel honored to include him in our publishing family.
