After attaining his degree, Jobie Hughes engaged in contemptible jobs that gave him minimal income for approximately five years. The years were tough for him considering that the jobs were crummy and with very little pay and at numerous times; he got fired from the jobs.
Later on, Jobie Hughes started his writing career at the age of 24. His passion gave him the foundation; hence at the age of 27, he thought it was time to leave capitalism, so he left it behind him. He moved to the New York City where he joined the School of Arts at Columbia University. He majored in Creative Writing (fiction) and graduated with a Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in May 2009.

When he first began his writing career, Jobie Hughes worked in coffeehouses, and he thought he would always spend his days in the cafes. However, with time, he could not bear the distractions that come with public places; thus he opted to work from home. His success in writing lies in his hard-work and passion; he loves his job, enjoys the fan, and takes his job seriously. He is also patient, and though there are both easy and hard days for him, he always looks forward to the reward that lies ahead. Additionally, he is assiduous and writes thousands of words every day since the passion drives him to achieve it and not just work on a daily set target.

The economic downtown of the New York City cannot sustain a living for him anymore. For that reason, Stratton decides to search for greener pastures; hence he sets out to Chicago; a journey that takes him 15 hours by train. However, on his arrival in Chicago, he realizes that his timing is off because it’s in November, and life is hell in Chicago too. In his first days in the new city, his former acquaintance who is financially stable hosts him, but he spoils everything when he steals some double sawbucks and booze from the host. Later, he lands an excruciating tedious job that involves assisting in editing telephone books. The job is good enough to pay his rent in a run-down apartment. Here, he meets one man called Gene who appreciates wine and cigar. Together they head to a local bar around Christmastime and with the assistance of Gene, Stratton wins the heart of a young lady, Carolyn, who is in an abusive relationship. He moves in with Carolyn, but he fears sharing his past with her; a reason that ruins their love relationship. In this novel, Hughes also recounts Stretton’s life as a little kid.

But again, you might consider the life he had in his childhood; his parents did little to discipline him. Also, he had no one show him how to acquire emotional stability that can assist one weather in harsh times. Hughes employs a vivid setting for his novel and uses believable characters in ordinary lives which is quite commendable.Book Series In Order » Authors » Jobie Hughes
