Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
Pain can be a blessing depending on how we respond to it which can launch us into a healthier life, more intimate relationships or just even the way out of a dark place.

As with the author’s first poetry collection, After the Sixth Day: Notes from a Spiritual Journey, the poems tell a story. There are times we need pain to reach our happy ending because there is some growth that only comes from adversity. Download the sample to check out the introduction.
When did you first start writing?
As a teenager on the long bus rides from our country home to attend school "in town" :)
