“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.”

“It reminded me of another favorite, “The Alchemist”
by Paulo Coelho…a journey to awaken the soul
to life’s purpose. I truly enjoyed this book,
I appreciated the author’s voice, as
it was both raw and unfiltered.”

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.
