It has been a long journey from depressed, lonely and alcoholic farm-boy to internationally known, award winning author. Using insight he gained from his own struggle he helped hundreds of individuals move from misery to joy during the many years he worked in the human services field. During his journey he also taught many other care-givers how to improve their ability to help others.
During his time he became a practiced listener and a good story teller.
Now he divides his time between his small farm and writing inspiring and educational books.
His writings have helped many learn the skills needed to:
> Reduce feelings of worthlessness and isolation
> Increase feelings of happiness
> Conquer addictions
> Reach new levels of spiritual understanding
> Improve relationships
> Find hope
He has long lived by the motto “Inspire Joyful Sanity”. So, what the heck does that mean? Well, the inspire part is obvious. His definition of sanity is to understand and accept the universe and the rules that make it work. The joyful part refers to the idea that joy is the default state of the human mind. The idea is that as you understand and accept the rules of the universe you remove the barriers to being in a joyful state. His goal is to inspire joyful sanity in himself and others.
His first books were inspirational self-help. However, all his life he has been a fan of sci-fi and fantasy. "Rebecca’s Initiation" is his first attempt at writing fiction and the first of a planned series called Redemption.
