Beginnings! Conversations that keep you talking

Coming Soon!

I'm working on two books under The Year Of My Life umbrella. One is nonfiction, while the other is fiction. The first book is 'The Year Of My Life: reminiscences and rants: The Seven Deadly Sins'. It's a look at the future of humanity. I wanted to start with a small project. The other book is 'TheYearOfMyLifeVR.com YEAR 2'. That book may take a little more effort.

I'll still be doing my autobiographical 'The Writer's Life Podcast', interviewing interesting people on the 'Beginnings! Conversations that keep you talking.' podcast, and working on the creation of a third podcast 'The Year Of My Life VR - Stories of life from around the world'.

Depending on what ideas hit me when I wake up in the middle of the night, there may be more projects in the works. All in all, it should be a busy year.

If you'd like to support any of these projects, please visit my Patreon page. a contribution can get you recognition and some pretty good merch. Happy New Year!

​I did what was considered impossible, by my 25th birthday, but that's only part of the story. It's been a never-ending rollercoaster. These are the stories of a lifetime. Listen to the entire archive.

Due to a computer error, there are times when Amazon will charge for my book. All other platforms are always free.
