Hop and Skip is a novel about the power of illusion. It is a series of realistic scenes played out against a landscape of wishful thinking. In other words, it is everyday existence. Four people seek to avoid the truth and all find it. A young man seeks the city's excitement. A young woman tries to avoid the city's realities. A young man yearns to emulate the city's rulers. A rich man seeks to create an ideal city. Every goal is reached and, then, abandoned and, yet, at the end, each character finds redemption and a unique oasis of peace.

About the author (2006)

Phillip Hammes is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin and a Vietnam veteran.

Sober authorities have linked him to a boisterous career as a sergeant in the French Foreign Legion.  Some have said he was a senior legal advisor to the British House of Lords. Others state, positively, that he was the financial wizard behind the rise of many modern, multi-national corporations. None of these histories have, as yet, been verified by independent investigation.

What is known is that he fancies bagels with his coffee, and believes dark beer has mystical properties.
