-Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?

I've spent my life living in coastal Rhode Island, USA and the writing is a clear look at my experience as I grew sick through the use and abuse of alcohol and drugs, the damages caused, and then my ultimate recovery through a profound spiritual experience. Everywhere I travel throughout my state I still see my travels through memories.

-When did you first start writing?

I started writing seven years ago yet would find myself at a loss and would abandon each title, until now. I've reviewed two of those past manuscripts that were started and have recently begun work on one of them that I really like, "Bores' Mission."

-What's the story behind "Delusion of Mind Strength Through Spirit?"

It's an in-depth look at the cause of alcoholism and my revealing experience with the illness. The triumph is my full recovery from an insidious illness that wraps itself around the sufferer like a wet t-shirt. It's about spiritual disease, the cause, and the solution, a reconnection to God.

-What motivated you to become an author?

I've always wanted to tell "my story." As I would spend countless hours working with others to help them break free I came to see that there is indeed a wide audience looking for hope with an issue that strikes home with so many, whether they are the drinker or the loved one of the drinker.

-What do your readers mean to you?

Hope. The hope that perhaps they will experience their own "A-ha" moments as they review my writings, and life.

-What inspires you to get out of bed each day?

The idea that as an individual I can be of service to God, and others, even if it is simply passing on a smile. The idea that we each have our own "personal legend" that needs to be fulfilled.

-What is your writing process?

Six to eight hours a day! Once I start I block everything out and retreat from community and society to get the job done. I get into that groove and when I'm immersed in that river I don't want to get out and dry off until the task is complete. This is how it was for me with "Delusion of Mind Strength Through Spirit."

-How did you approach your cover design?

I left it up to God, as I do with most everything. I became a part of a photoshoot in the past year and when the idea of a cover crossed my mind I received a message from the photographer with an image included. It just "fell into place." And then of course my dear friend Kyle added the graphics to complete it.

-Describe your desk. And your current works in progress.

Crisp, clean and neat. No clutter! Years ago it mirrored my mind, an absolute mess and dismal neighborhood to visit.
