Hi Jeffrey,
I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to you, I hadn't realized this question was here until now. I bought your book years ago and it's been awhile since I've read it. My favorite story was the one with the boy named Bradley and the salamander. I believe it was called, "This Isn't What You think?"

Just like when our physical muscles need a rest after a hard work out, the creative muscle needs a brake…er…break too. I stop all writing and go on a reading spree.

New Book Release!

Two years ago on my 40th birthday, the fam and I had picked up lattes and was driving through university district in downtown Bellingham when an old Victorian house caught my eye. It was on a side street. The landscape was ancient and immaculate, but the house was old. The white paint was peeling.
