“His phenomenal gifts are a natural expression of an intelligent,
compassionate heart, and his wonderfully relevant stories
need to be heard in these troubled times –
now more than ever.”

“The richness in your choice
of words and rhythm shows that
we ourselves have entered with you
a place where time moves differently.“
A sample of music spoken about in "Road of Ash & Dust"
Author & Speaker
“For me, words are more than symbols on a printed page. They possess textures, tones and power. My fascination with reading and writing started before I knew the alphabet, sitting at the bedside of my 100 plus year old great-grandfather. I would sit there, enthralled, watching and listening as he breathed life into words through stories, sermons and, sometimes, songs. My fate was sealed long before I reached the age of reason.
Road of Ash & Dust: Awakening of a Soul in Africa is a chapter in the saga of my life begun so many decades ago.”
- EMBRACING THE ALTER EGO -
Many writers feel themselves teetering on the precipice of psychosis when immersed in their craft. I’m one of them.
I don’t suffer from dissociative identity disorder, nor have I ever had whole conversations with myself (well, ok, maybe… but that’s just part of my creative process).
- OBSESSIVE WRITING -
I’ve often been embarrassed in conversations with other writers when the topic turns towards our respective processes. I love listening to others enthusiastically articulate their techniques for getting the best of themselves onto paper. I’ve even tried out some of these processes, but with very little success.
