After several years of writing, shelving, re-writing and more writing, I am very proud to announce the release of my latest book, Reconnection. It is a memoir from the last decade of climbing out of a pit of despair to rebuild a life of meaning, purpose and beauty, though not without the daily struggles of living. You can get a copy here.

The other book I currently have out is called We Are All People – A Children’s Book About Tolerance. Here is a brief video about it.

Here are a few authors and books that I’ve read recently or that I’m currently reading that I warmly recommend in no particular order. I’ve found something valuable in each one of them. There are others that I will try to add as I think of them and as I continue reading.
