Rabbi Nachman of Breslov once said, “Whoever is able to write a book and does not, it is as if he has lost a child.” As an author, it is a quote that is especially meaningful to me. For, like raising a child, writing a book is a labor of love. In both cases, you invest a lot of time, thought and emotions into guiding them to be the best that they can be.
I remember being a young child, myself, and hearing my dad say that “we have only one purpose in life, and that is to leave this world a little better than we found it.” This thought has been a core principle that has guided me throughout my life, and it is what motivates me to write.
In a word, I write about freedom. Like the story of the Exodus from Egypt, I tell of escaping political oppression and of spiritual liberation from materialism, suffering and limited thought. For spiritual enlightenment is connected to political liberty. Rarely do individuals living in tyranny in this world have the luxury of contemplating otherworldly phenomena.

The Fourth Sunday of each month, Premium (Paid) Subscribers will receive content from my upcoming novel, Mckinley: Climb of Hope. This will be an inside look into my writing process and could include draft chapters, character development, inspirational material, and research for the book. An added benefit is that a portion of proceeds, both from “Suspense and Spirituality” and from future sales of this novel, will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
