This doesn’t have to be what you look like in your life now. This is who you are in you’re ideal life. This is the kind of person who can spring out of bed early and go at it, without contending. Just have fun with it. I’m giving you permission to dream.Read More
Dear Friend, Do you feel insignificant? It’s easy to do. Right now, I’m sitting, surrounded by Texas Pastureland. It’s peaceful out here. I’ve even punched off the music so I can just enjoy the silence. I’m also reading a book, ironically about focusing, which I’ve stopped to write you. After this, I want to go…Read More
Dear Friend, I’ve been reading a book: a memoir of sorts, called “On a Pedestal.” It was written by a friend of mine, Bessie David, using recordings of her Grandmother’s stories. This woman recounts living through the prohibition, the depression, WWII and so on. I can’t tell you exactly because I haven’t finished the book…Read More
Dear Friend, Tomorrow, I begin recording my first audio drama project. I’ve never actually done an audio drama. I’ve recorded as a voice actor. I’ve created a layered song of my voice, overlapping the songs. This was done about ten years ago. Tomorrow, I begin working with 20 actors and one audio editor to recreate…Read More
Dear Friend, You are a fantastic person. You have so many talents, skills, and quirks that make you, well, you. But you are only one person. So be kind to yourself. It’s okay that your housekeeping isn’t perfect. It’s okay that there is a mouse in your house or a bug on your rug. You…Read More

I know, because I’m a writer too. I’m tired. My head hurts. I don’t know where to take the story next. I have all the same difficulties that you do. Guess what? We’re not alone over here.Read More
Dear Friend, I thought about the answer to the classic “If today was your last day, what would you do?” But I’ve never considered, what would I say, and more specifically, what would I say to you, Friend, who may know me very well or not at all. We may not know each other by…Read More
Now, look at this collection hovering, scattered around you. What do you see? Hurtful words that stayed in your heart? Doubts because you don’t know where to start? Lack: you’ll fail because you don’t know enough. Fear and anger from when times got rough.
You know what I see?
Our lives are like roses. Our petals unfurl, open, and sometimes drop away one by one. That’s what my life felt like last year. This year it feels like a tornado passed through, scattering my petals and strewning them in all directions. I’ve got nothing together. There’s a petal here, another retrived there. I gather…Read More
“So, what exactly is your dream?” “I want to tell stories that make my readers brave and inspired. I want to house these stories in novels that have beautiful pages and covers, infusing art and emotion into the physical book. I want to give workshops about how I do this and how others can successfully…Read More
