You Have a Book Inside of You–VIDEO

When given the task of inspiring a group of people to go out into the world and do something, I immediately thought of writing. The written word has influenced me in so many ways. Plus, it goes on influencing people long after the author of those words is no longer living. With this in mind, […]

From Writer to Speaker–VIDEO

To me, this means that every single word that I write (after editing, and editing several more times–like I do in everything that is public or private that I send […]

Anatomy of a Great Television Series

As a writer, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the entertaining medium of storytelling. With every fall season’s new television shows, I’m reminded again exactly why some fail quickly, others fail slowly, and why some are huge successes indefinitely.
