Hey There!


The last few weeks of summer were really something! An earthquake that rattled the east coast, damaging hurricanes that devastated many states, and raging wild fires out west (which have been burning for several months). What a season it has been! Many have lost so much, but, I pray that all those who have been affected by these natural disasters will soon see brighter days! 


The weather is changing, leaves are falling, and the year is slowly but surely winding down. My how time flies! With this change of season I encourage you to reach out and try something new. Pursue a long-held dream, enroll in that class you’ve been wanting to take, reconnect with old friends, and step out of your comfort zone and take a risk…you never know, it might just lead you to utopia!


There are a few new things I’m going to try in the coming months and I’m really excited about the infinite possibilities. I’ll fill you in later, until then, stay up!


Peace & Light,


Thank You!


I have more good news to share! I’m pleased to announce that, UNEXPECTED INTERRUPTIONS, has gone into a second printing! Good is amazing and I’m so thankful for His grace! In a time when the economy is lagging and book sales are down across the board, I’m thankful for this blessing! I’m humbled that so many readers have spent their hard earned dollars to purchase my book and support my work. WOW!! THANK YOU so much to my family and friends for all that you do. And an extra special THANK YOU to the many readers and book clubs who helped spread the word and selected UI as your Book of the Month! You helped to make this happen and I’m very grateful for your support!
