The Pandemic Has Taught Me



Compassion for those suffering.
Empathy for grieving loved ones left behind.









Understanding about the fragility of existence.
Insight into myself and my purpose in life.


















To slow down and enjoy quiet moments.
To make a phone call to say ‘I love you.’



Remember moments of connection.
To feel the beauty of the sunshine






Smell the newness of Spring.
To express gratitude for life.

50 Read Heroes for Boys

New Book

I loved writing this book. I hope everyone is inspired by the real life heroes in this book as I am.


I am inspired by Jackie Robinson standing with his team mates on  the baseball field amidst the jeering fans to be come one of the best players in the history of the game.



I cheer Mary Manning on as she continued to find fossils to help us understand prehistoric creatures even though she got no credit because she was a woman.



I laugh with Jim Henson and his lovable puppets that entertained and changed the world.



I admire Dav Pilkey who stuck to his dream of becoming a children's author even though teachers ridiculed him as a youth.

The book is available on Amazon


and through the publisher
