What if You Could Talk to Your 23 Year Old Self?

If there was a way to have a conversation with your 23 year old self, what would you say to her or him? What choices would you tell them to make differently than you did the first time around?

That’s the question at the core of my latest novel, The Five Times I Met Myself. (Releases today!) Here’s a brief description:


What if you met your twenty-three-year-old self in a dream? What would you say?

Brock Matthews’ once promising life is unraveling. His coffee company. His marriage. So when he discovers his vivid dreams—where he encounters his younger self—might let him change his past mistakes, he jumps at the chance. The results are astonishing, but also disturbing.

Because getting what Brock wants most in the world will force him to give up the one thing he doesn’t know how to let go . . . and his greatest fear is that it’s already too late.

Even if you don’t think you’ll read the novel, I think the question of what we would say to our younger selves is worth asking, because many of us wish we’d chosen a different path way back then, even if way back then is only a few years ago.

All my stories are deeply personal and I put a lot of myself into them. But this one I’ve done it more than usual, and it seems to be resonating with readers and reviewers.


“If you think fiction can’t change your life and challenge you to be a better person, you need to read The Five Times I Met Myself.”  Andy Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of The Noticer & The Traveler’s Gift
