Helping raise social consciousness with laughter, wellness & empowerment; with my comedy book, as a talk show host & as an ambassador for rethinkFIT.
Share a little bit about your book, The Ridiculous Adventures of Serbinand.
Serbinand, an easygoing, fun, go-with-the-flow adventurer, takes a trip through space, time, and dimensions after switching bodies with an unsuspecting human on Earth.
The cast of characters learns to navigate through their new circumstances, with the occasional interruption from the author. Through new eyes, they get to experience the world with wonder, joy, some uncomfortable situations, and a lot of hilarious moments.
If you enjoyed the comedic style of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, Family Guy, Simpsons, Seinfeld, or the adventures of Star Wars, you will have a blast with this wacky journey too!
Are there more adventures coming with Serbinand?
Absolutely! Book 2 is almost complete… it’s called The Ridiculous Adventures of Serbinand: Godfried’s Turn
Humor is a major part of your storytelling. Where did you get your sense of humor from?
It sure is… since the book also has deep empowerment messages, along with self growth and self love, comedy seems to be a great way to deliver that in a subtle, yet powerful way!
My influences would have come from Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Monty Python, Benny Hill, SCTV, Seinfeld, The Simpsons and, of course, Family Guy!
From your webpage it appears you are involved in a lot of different projects besides writing. Briefly tell us about what else you do.
Sure am! In fact, writing is one of the ways that I spread my message. Having helped launch and pioneer the natural bodybuilding and fitness model movements with events, expos, magazines, workshops and television shows around the world we found there was something missing. That being fit goes way beyond just strength and appearance. It also must includes mental, emotional, social, spiritual, and functional health too! So my wife and I spread that message in the Serbinand book series (she is actually co-Authoring the next books with me) along with our book and course: Rethink FIT To Be Happy & Healthy. We also coach, teach and share information, inspiration and insights on our podcasts and online tv shows.
What is your favorite aspect of writing?
Well, I write for myself! I am the first audience. So when writing the comedy book I do so in a style where I allow myself to get into the moment and let the downloads come through. This means that I don’t have the details of the story planned out, and that means that I am unraveling it in real time, which means I get to read the story as it is being written, without knowing exactly what is going to happen next! That is fun 🙂
If you had to describe yourself in just three words, what would they be?
Creative, Inspirational, Metaphysical
What does success look like for you as an author?
Knowing my words make someone laugh, have an aha, new awareness or to spark the reader to rethink the way they are looking at things. To be impactful, and entertaining

From deltic spagnoids to the Algernon Sector Serbinand and his slightly annoying, yet really super smart ship Godfried careened across the somewhat vast universe intersecting with Jime and Orville in some bizarre galactic space disruption that turned everyone’s world completely upside down, or right side up… ahh… or was it inside out…umm, outside in maybe… or… umm… well… everything changed.”
SREEFS & RHINOKICKERS
From the distant star of Placellner he travelled.
Why? Who knows…? But that’s not the point. At least not right now. For three billion galactic years and nine point two mega seconds his ship careened across the somewhat vast universe. Turning left here and right there and looping around deltic spagnoids every so often. But all in all, besides the mishap near the Algernon sector, ahem, which we also won’t get into right now, it was smooth trekking.
His journey would have been a lot shorter had he not stopped at Joe’s Galactic Bar. But who could blame him? With all the advertising that Joe has been doing lately, he wouldn’t be surprised if a Cornsharr actually did stop by. You know the slogan: “No party is complete without a Cornsharr… Why not stop in and try Joe’s Galactic Bar!”
What the hell is a Cornsharr?, the space traveller thought as he came within a safe distance of the place. I wonder if other beings come by just to see if they can catch a glimpse of a Cornsharr, he pondered.
Anyway, he decided why not and stopped in for several sreefs and a shot of his favourite drink, the Rhinokicker. This strange and bizarre sort of alcoholic substance got its name during the Age of Bartenders. It is much like one of the Olden Age soft drinks called Briozza, which was banned under section 77.56 of the Living Rights Act supplement 999.887.172.31457—A. Unlike Briozza though, it claimed that 3.289 seconds after tasting the rhino kicker, one would kick back their legs in disgust and charge something, usually a brick wall, scream-singing “Rhino, rhino, rhino!” The Rhinokicker has no such effect on Serbinand, although he has claimed to have hallucinated packs of rhinos flying around his head.
