crooked tour guides, transvestite karaoke stars, restroom massage gang

In hindsight, maybe fluttering off the tour guide's red line wasn't such a good idea. But Jon has neither hindsight nor foresight as his vacation unfolds in real time. Acting without consequence, he discovers that real life is funnier, crazier, and more interesting than fiction, as he encouters crooked tour guides, transvestite karaoke stars, restroom massage gangs, and angels - not with wings and halos, but g-strings and high heels.

Dennis Jon is a Canadian author living in California. Born to the children of poor immigrants, Dennis was the first of his family to graduate from High School. He then went on to Art School, inspiring his family to question his sanity, “Who the hell is going to pay you to draw pictures?”

It wasn’t long before Dennis found himself in the advertising and design industry in San Francisco. Now a Creative Director at a major agency, Dennis puts most of his creative talent to work telling other designer’s what to do, but still gets involved in select hands-on projects, designing advertising and websites for both Fortune 500 companies and small-time startups. His experience in the advertising world, where the job is to bend people’s brains to consume meaningless objects for imaginary benefits, has caused Dennis to question nearly all aspects of “consensus reality.”

Recognizing that real knowledge can only be acquired first hand, Dennis is on a quest to find out “what the hell is really happening?” With significant experience as a motorcycle racer, swing dancer, mixed martial artist, historian, hypnotist, photographer, investor and now as a writer, Dennis can meaningfully claim to be either a real renaissance man, or a real scatterbrain.Inspired by Paul Theroux’s travel essays, and Herman Hesse’s Siddhartha, Dennis can be found seeking enlightenment while traveling through Asia, usually with a notebook and camera in hand, getting into trouble, and documenting it for future tales of intrigue.

He is currently on a quest to be the world champion of the infamous bar game, “Connect 4” and can often be found trying to prove it from a barstool in Thailand.
