Behind the Wheel deals with Nick’s attempt at living the dream. What dream? Nick’s not sure either, but it takes a job that turns out to be a little more than he bargained for to help answer that question.
Nick is part of a group of Americans and Canadians contracted to teach English at a distinguished bilingual private school in Northern Mexico. The principal is a clown and the students could benefit from summers spent at boot camp. Then there’s the insurmountable work load.
But things at school aren’t so bad when compared with the raging drug violence just down the block. No one is too sure why the cartels insist on cutting everybody’s head off. It seems like quite a laborious task for a body count currently around 55,000.
Nick suspects living the dream has to do with a job and a life that make a little more sense than what Colegio Munich and Torreon have to offer. He’s not sure where to go or what to do after leaving, but he knows what not to look for.

About the Author
N. Peligeiro is still trying his hand at teaching and learns more as he goes. He doesn’t subscribe to that whole “those who can’t do, teach” theory and he repents for being less than a model student back in Minnesota when he was young and knew he knew it all.
Currently Mr. Peligeiro is probably somewhere in South America, but it’s hard to say because he moves around a lot and burns through money because he has a space between his two front teeth that he hasn’t gotten fixed yet even though an old Chinese sage told him it was bad physiognomy and he’d always have financial problems while the space remained.
He likes to write when he’s got something to say. When he doesn’t he keeps his mouth shut and his pen capped.
