As a writer, a musician, and a dreamer, I believe that having an open heart, an open mind, and being able to seek out the best in others is invaluable. In my writing, I do my best to provide examples of unadulterated humanity, from despair to joy, from heartache to triumph.
My first book, titled “Be Strong, Be Tough, Be Smart,” tells the triumphant story of raising my son who was diagnosed with autism at the age of 4 and went on to become a PhD, working with NASA and other space science institutions.
The focus of my new book “Real Men Wear Beige” is to shatter common misconceptions about prison and the criminal justice system. In general, the psychology that drives my writing is to share experiences and insights with those who may be helped, inspired, or entertained by them. I strive to be insightful and informative, and lean on humor and irony to bring life to my words.
