What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I love writing and I've been more successful in this than I dared to hope. I produced a published textbook in 1987 (Job Seeking Skills for Students, Kendall Hunt Publishing). In 2007, my debut novel was published by Israel's Mazo Publishers (Jacob's Courage: A Holocaust Love Story). In 2015, Jacob's Courage was republished by Texas Tech University Press. In 2009 and 2011, I published two books: Runaway Ducks and Book Marketing 101. In 2012, I acquired a literary agent and through my agent. My most recent book is Lost & Found: An Alien Adventure. In Lost & Found, an American astronaut faces love and death in an alien body on a distant planet. This is a tale of suspense, love, intolerance, war and survival, where no human has ventured before.

I wasn't sure that I could produce a book that would be trade-published. Now that I've accomplished it three times, and I have a talented and well-connected agent, I believe that I have even more potential for future books.

However, it is my family that inspires me to get out of bed each day. I've learned that no achievement in life compares to being a part of a loving and caring family. I'm far more proud of my wife's and children's achievements than my own; and I'm far more grateful to have their love than I could possibly be if I became a best-selling author.
