I have been writing all my life. Short stories, poems, screenplays, monologues, several novels. But I have not as of yet released any of my work, publicly. This first book, "The Cleansing", will be the first piece I show, openly. I do so hope you enjoy the read.

“If you're going to write, you have to be open to possibility.”
Richard Luciano, The Cleansing

“Once you can accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.”

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
Marianne Williamson, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of "A Course in Miracles"
