Stay True to Yourself

We’re all looking for more – more connections, more love, more understanding. And to laugh along the way. 

I’m the author of several book including Narican: The Cloaked Deception, a science fiction piece about the evolution of souls, and my most recent, Love in a Dying Town is a story about a single father raising his daughter in a dying factory town, showing her right from wrong, even as the world crumbles around them, even as parts of him do as well.

As a writer and as an individual I seek deeper truths that are often hidden in plain sight, or swept under society’s dirty rug.

This episode is brought to you by PodMatch, the dating service for podcasters. They introduced me to Douglas Robbins, and I’m so glad they did.

I’m so passionate about stories that I created the Story-Power podcast and Patreon communities so I’d have an excuse to talk story with other story lovers. If you’re passionate about stories too, and want to talk about what you’ve learned from your favorites, come join me at

I grew up in the West, the descendant of people traveling by wagon train to a new life. Some of their determination and wanderlust became a part of me. I imagine them sitting around the campfire telling stories, which is why I became first a theatre artist, then a teacher and now a writer. They are all ways of telling stories.
