My Ninth Book is Almost Ready!

I wrote my ninth book,  Be Shamelessly, Fearlessly YOU: How to Stop Hiding in Plain Sight to serve as a riveting, powerful nudge in the right direction.

My “Manna in the Wilderness” Experience

In the Old Testament is the story of the Hebrews leaving Egypt–where they’d been slaves for more than 400 years–and wandering in the desert wilderness for 40 years on their way to the Promised Land.

Book Review: My Friend Michael

http://amzn.to/2h9FEmL

I’ve just read a remarkable book about Michael Jackson called My Friend Michael by Frank Cascio.   You’ll hate the book if you’re under the impression that Michael Jackson was “Wacko Jacko” or a pedophile.  But if you are malingering under this impression, I implore you to read it.
