Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
"Heart Dancing: A Story Alchemy Adventure" is a work of fiction about a troubled family who walks through the fires of anger, hate and rage to discover a new way of seeing each other, themselves and their past. Embedded in the story are tools and techniques on how to become a deliberate creator, instead of an unconscious reactor to outside events.

"Heart Dancing" is based on a compilation of inspirational, metaphysical and quantum physics materials that when understood and used together, transforms lives. For the first time, I reveal the "Story Alchemy Process" and it transforms the lives of the characters. My hope is that readers will resonate with the conflicts, anger and resentment of the characters, and will want to know more about how Story Alchemy can help them after they set down the book.

I created Story Alchemy after analyzing how I changed stories from my own past. It is a simple but profound evolutionary process that dissolves the past and clears your perspective of the present moment. Your decisions, actions and goals are then re-aligned with your authentic self, not a persona you created from past events or judgments.

Anyone struggling to make sense of their life, anyone who wonders how they got off track or anyone tired of feeling sad, lonely or frustrated will discover or recognize something in this book that help them on their journey. "Heart Dancing" demonstrates how to change your life, one step at a time.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I am passionate about teaching others about how to live their life creatively and deliberately. My greatest joy is sharing the information and techniques I have used myself and shared with others. They really work and they are so easy to start using - I want to shout about them from the rooftops! Since that is not the most effective way to reach the most number of people (lol), I write books and blog articles instead.

I see so much pain, anger and hurt in others that may no longer serve them. If I can show them the doorway to a different life, that is where I find my value. Of course, it is up to them to walk through the door and choose differently!

The same information and techniques found in "Heart Dancing" also helped me transform my own life. My mission is to share these simple techniques so others can free themselves from a past that no longer serves them.

The end game is to be happy, healthy and healed.
