I am currently working hard as an author, my 4th career. I owned and operated a convenience store for 10 years and a computer networking company for 25 years. I was a school teacher and counselor in the public schools. I am a proud husband, father and grandfather. I am someone who cares about the people around me, who wants to improve the society we all live in, who hopes on a daily basis to leave the planet a little better than it was the previous day and who is cognizant that the impact I have on the world is minimal. Tilting at windmills is a part of my character as is a deep love for all those who need to be loved. In my own mind I am a complex, multi-layered, unique character in the kaleidoscoping drama of life.

DESTINY, THE GIRL WHO DRAGONS

Available at Amazon in Kindle or Paperback format.  Buy Here

There are tons of action-adventure elementary school age books out there. I don't see enough of them emphasizing girls as the hero. We need to make sure that 50% of our population grows up knowing they have an internal hero. If we can encourage girls' imagination to see themselves as victors, we are insuri
