What made him feel whole
was something he never expected.
Living with Markus
is my current work in progress
and is expected to be released in March 2016.
When thirty-one-year-old Marc Nussbaum builds a successful landscaping business with clientele from the affluent suburbs of Chicago, he has visions of enjoying the finer things in life—easy-going, no dependents, and minimum commitment—and thinks he’s found the right woman to enjoy it with him. But when he repeatedly shoves his own life aside to run to the aid of his dysfunctional family members and falls victim to their helplessness, he eventually loses sight of his dreams and his girlfriend.
Embittered by thankless relatives and their hopeless situations, Marc must decide whether to continue saving them from their ill-fated lives, or save himself from entering into a life of self-sacrifice and missed opportunities.
It is only after painful soul-searching and late-night talks with the fetching tenant from downstairs that Marc eventually realizes his purpose in life and how to achieve self-fulfillment—and the purpose in life that he discovers isn’t at all what he expected it would be.
