Comments from the author about writing: I write because I love to write more than anything else. The way words come together in a meaningful way gives me immense pleasure. I receive messages from people around the world telling me how much my writing has helped them on their journey of life. This is another reason why I write - to encourage my readers on their own path of life. The content of my writing centers on inspiring/motivating readers toward their own personal transformation. My work is mainly non-fiction prose, quite a bit of it on transitions, grief, and loss. I also have a book of poetry and a memoir on walking the Camino in Northern Spain.
