I suppose these titles fit me in a nutshell. If someone asked me at a dinner party, what do you do? I’m probably going to give these a shout out. For two decades (that sounds like an eternity), I’ve been marketing technology to enterprises across multiple industries: insurance and financial services, government, manufacturing, retail, life sciences, and healthcare. Currently, I lead an expanded team working to develop business relationships within client set and market company strategy and vision. My specialties include: Business Development, Leading Large and Diverse Teams, Website Development, Communication, Presentations to large groups, and Design. I know it’s a long list. I’ve been doing this a long time.
Knights of Legend
Recently, I published my first novel, Knights of Legend, after eight years of work. The hardest part might not have been the writing, just a few paragraphs each day can take you far. To think, just 500 words per day translates to 180,000 words a year. This is two full-length novels! For Knights, most of the time I spent in the editing process, there were twelve drafts of this book. It was a long road. And I have a number of people to thank including friends, family, college professors and an editor that trimmed about 50,000 words out of the book. For me, this book is lean and mean. But in the end, it’s the confidence of putting yourself out there that is the hardest. If you are interested in picking up a copy, check out the Dynamic Page store or look on Amazon (there is a Kindle Version too).
The Dark Harp
This is a little project I managed with my kid. A year ago, my child laid down the Christmas challenge. “Write me a story, Daddy.” After a lengthy editing process, crafting 50,000 words, and painting a little on the side, the story of a King, Queen, Dark Wizard, and two magical instruments is available now.
Putting Yourself Out There
I’m going to be using this blog of sorts moving forward to post some insights I’ve written from literature and business classes to just trying to keep my head above water being a dad. I’ve actually written a number of articles through the years. Hopefully, over time I’ll add more work, discuss books I’ve read, post pictures of places I’ve visited and just put myself out there. Hope you enjoy.
Yeah, I still believe in the American Dream, that baseball is the National Pastime, and that telling stories remains an important part of our culture.
