Story
Tagline
“How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.” -Henry David Thoreau
Introduction
I believe in living to write. The more we take in, the more we can impart, right? I travel as often as I can. Whether it be road trips to other states, day-trips to Catalina Island, or excursions right in my own backyard, I find adventure everywhere. Seeing and doing is what makes my writing come alive. I love kayaking and yoga, playing with my dog, baked potato bar nights with friends, and watching quirky films. I'm like a quilter - everything is source material and material is my life!! So I live to write, and writing to make a living is fantastic too!

“A little bit of beer is divine medicine.” — Paracelsus, Greek physician
A nicely crafted beer is a thing of beauty, but if you're pouring it into just any old grimy pint glass, you're not letting that brew reach its true potential. The right glass is key to getting every last boozy drop of pleasure.

Because listening skills are important.
For the past year, I have been experimenting with building new habits. Sleeping better, rising earlier, eating better, writing more - 2014 has been a journey of self-improvement and creative discipline.In September, I wanted to focus on improving my listening skills.

It is difficult to distill a list of must-read books down to ten, but here it is nonetheless!
