One of my interviews was mentioned by John Waggoner which is a Columnist for USA Today. From there I have published two books. Both are designed to give people hope and encouragement regardless of what they are going through. This is my theme for my website and my radio talk show. Here are my website addresses for my website and my radio talk show. My interviews that I have done on other shows about my books and author's that I have interviewed are on my website as well.
