I haven’t written a book…yet. I have a couple of ideas, and one of my goals this year is to start writing my first book! However, I have written, recorded, and co-produced an album from scratch. I’ve experienced first-hand the sweat, blood, and tears that go into producing something from nothing, of pulling yourself from the bootstraps and creating something from your heart! So, I have...

When I hold a book in my hands, it represents a promise of at least a few hours of pleasure, inspiration, thought-provoking activity, or just plain entertainment. Books unlock the imagination, allowing us to escape the mundane things of life - studying, working, cleaning the house, diapers, what have you - and transport us to another time...
