My New Book is Interactive!

Technology is amazing, isn’t it? Alright, I’ll admit that sometimes it makes my head spin but mostly I’m just blown away by the number of ways we can communicate and share information these days.

Have you heard of QR Codes? The QR stands for Quick Response and it’s a small square barcode that you scan with your phone and it will immediately link you to content that I’ve created to go with specific sections of my book.

You’ll need an app on your smart phone in order for this to work. I recommend the QR Code Reader from Kaywa because it’s free of advertisements. Download it from the App Store so you’re ready to use it with my book…. it’s coming soon!

Rockets are Going Off in My Head!

I’m beyond excited today. Do you know why?

I just sent off the final manuscript of my new book, Sheer Determination, Swimming Upstream in a Downstream World, to Tamara Monosoff, Book Coach.

My Editors Randy Tada and his sister Wendy have been working feverishly to polish up every sentence in the manuscript to its highest level of quality. They did a teriffic job and I can’t thank them enough.

After taking a deep breath of relief, thinking I can relax a bit, I thought of you, my loyal supporters. I want you to be the first ones to receive this good news and the first ones to see my Introductory Video of Sheer Determination.

The roll-out date for the Kindle Book version of Sheer Determination is set for MAY 4, 2017.

I encourage you to reflect on your past year and focus on the most uplifting events. Today I want to share a video of an event that always brings tears of joy and a smile to my face. Read more

Those of you who know me are already aware of my deep commitment to helping animals in need. One of the ways that I do this is by holding an annual gift raffle and hosting a holiday fundraiser where we sell handmade items and all the proceeds go to small local animal-focused nonprofits. Read more
