About this title


Twenty-three year old JB finds himself in need of an upgrade in life now that he has been out of college for nine months and has found little success as an aspiring actor. Only to his surprise do the events of 9/11 ignite within him and his friends, Nick and Paulo, a sudden urge to flee Los Angeles, purge themselves of an uninspiring life, and create art — that is, an improvisational film involving each other, friends and family, and strangers they meet along the way as they venture up the Californian coast and into the Pacific Northwest. While completing the film remains their end goal, it seems more often than not they are sidetracked, resulting in an unexpected turn of events.

About the Author:

How to Succeed by Failing is Jon-Barrett Ingels first published work. He studied Theatre and Screenwriting at Chapman University. He spends his time raising his six-year old daughter and contemplating the differences between California Syrah, Australian Shiraz, and the wines of Northern Rhone. He is currently working on his fiction novel, which he has been chiseling away at for the last eight years.
