What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is my first book! Now that I have entrenched myself as a lifestyle performance coach for kids ages 5-13, I felt the need to talk about something very important to me as I have 3 kids in that age bracket myself. Our school systems are failing our kids, they are not teaching them the proper skills and requirements to succeed in life. It is not the teacher's fault, but the curriculum that they are being handed by the school boards.This trickles over into post-secondary education which has become quite irrelevant for a large portion of students today.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I was an avid reader at an early age, the first real books I read were Tolkien's The Hobbit and his Lord of the Rings trilogy. My love for fantasy grew from there. C.S. Lewis was next as I dove into Narnia, then The Dragonriders of Pern. I never underestimated the power of fantasy and how it can take your imagination and make it blossom.
