About The Book

Becker Drane knows exactly how The World works

You know the rain we had two weeks ago, or that nightmare you had last night? Becker Drane can tell you exactly who or what was responsible because Becker works as a Fixer for The Seems. From the Department of Weather to the Department of Time, The Seems is the world-behind-our-World, and it keeps everything running smoothly.

But every so often, something goes wrong.

When a Glitch makes its way into the Department of Sleep, Becker is called in for his very first Fixer assignment and he’s got to get it right. But this Mission is tricky, and his regular Tools aren’t up to the test. If Becker doesn’t find a Fix fast, he just might lose the coolest job ever―and The World will lose a lot more than a good night’s sleep.

Michael Wexler was born on April 15, tax day, and was thus written off from a very young age. Despite his New Jersey upbringing and since retired Brooklyn fade haircut he has managed to author eight books, create and direct projects for the likes of Fox, ABC, NBC, Microsoft, NPR, Sirius/XM, and HBO, as well as serve as an Adjunct Professor of writing at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Despite a devastating elbow injury (long story) that derailed his burgeoning tennis career, Wexler has also sublimated his creative and existential longings via an unheralded and unsuccessful music career that spans five self-released albums featuring performances from the likes of alt-country Grammy nominee Tift Merritt and others.
