Sharon Poppen and I had the priviledge to speak about the writing life and our books at a meeting of the Creative Comrades in Lake Havasu City. Creative Comrades is a community of creative professionals, entrepneurs and businesspeople who get together once a month to share their expertise with each other.

Malachi is ten and is pictured here with his mother Debi who bought a copy of my book. Malachi has already written three books. He knows he was born to be a writer and articulately explains a recent project to write from different points of view. Deb encourages him to read 30 minutes per day.
