I binged this book in 3 hours. First thought... you have a plausible sitcom with a number of valuable messages and take-aways about modern life and relationships here. I usually have a good idea where the plot is heading... but not this time. Worth the read.

The dating world from the viewpoint of the "matchmakers." By reading this book you can gain some insight on putting yourself back on the playing field! It's a novel, it's a Self-Help Guide, it's inspiring. But above all it's a good read! Looking forward to a sequel.

A rip-roaring ride through the jungles of singleness, laced with unexpected twists and turns. It's sure to make you laugh all the while taking you on an insightful journey through dating 21st Century style. The dating tips alone make this book more than worthwhile.



Novelist and Screenwriter

Frank Myer realized the value of fiction the day his dad inquired about the permanent family centerpiece, “who broke the crystal bowl?”

His respect for fiction flourished in High School when he got away with earning a top grade for his book report on the non-existant Taking Another Hill by a Frank E. Meyers.

Don’t Put the Cart Before the Unicorn is Myer’s first published novel. His two additional novels, screen and stage plays currently await discovery.

Not one to miss an opportunity, Frank capitalized on his short-lived experience in the age of digital dating. Accessing uncharted territory, Frank and his female co-author offer a glimpse into how the other side experiences dating apps, etiquette, and how a perpetual pen pal can be moved to action. Readers will get their money’s worth from the advanced search methods alone.

Frank was born and raised in Philadelphia and resides in Dallas. He can sometimes be found at a Dallas Cowboy game wearing his Eagles cap. He’s a bi-polar sports fan.
