book release

Special Announcement!

If you would've told me a couple of years ago that I would write a book, I wouldn't have believed you. It barely feels real today. I feel like all the stuff I've been learning and producing lately has happened almost by accident. So, now for the special announcement....

My second book is now available in paper back and Kindle! I really think you are going to like this book.

Here's what I put on the back cover:  Have you ever felt like everyone around you is more spiritual than you are? No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, the practical keys in this interactive book will help you go deeper. Get ready to unlock the next door in your spiritual journey over the next 30 days!


My daughter, Zoe and I will be signing books at the 5th Annual Ankeny Author's Fair on Saturday! We would love to see you there!

The Story Behind Harry and Larry

My daughter Zoe wrote a book a couple months ago. She is ten years old. Knock me over with a feather! I knew she was a bit addicted to typing on her computer, but when she told me she had written a whole book I was quite surprised. Having a creative child is really exciting, but it can also be a lot of work. When my daughter told me her news I could not just sit back and say, “Oh, that’s nice, Zoe.”

What’s a mom to do? I had to take action.

While Zoe’s story was very fun and well thought out, it needed a lot of editing to be put into book format.

I started off by editing the book myself.  I spent several hours over several days on this part.

Next I passed the manuscript on to my dad for proofreading. I asked my mom, who is a self-published author a few times over, to help me format the text into the correct page sizes.

Zoe drew a picture for the book cover.  She had very definite ideas about the way she wanted it to look.  Next, my spiritual daughter Ashley went to the drawing board to give the canaries the animated personality that Zoe envisioned.

Overall the process of turning a manuscript into a real book turned out to be a wonderful collaboration with family.

What fun!

Don’t let your dreams just be dreams.

Do your homework and make your ideas come to life!
