If you had to summarize your life and give it a book title, what would that title be?
Enjoy the Journey. One of the messages of my book is to encourage people to appreciate and love their spouses now, while they have opportunity. Don’t wait for some perceived destination or goal to start living. Enjoy what you have now.
What are you working on right now? Could you give us a taste/teaser (aka excerpt) from your current WIP?
I’m planning a cross-country bicycle trip from the northwest corner of the U.S. to Key West for a book called Front Porch America, hoping to meet folks on their front porches and hear their stories and weaving their stories together with mine.
What are you reading right now?
The Lost City of Z by David Grann, Heart-Centered Leadership by Susan Steinbrecher and Joel B. Bennett, For the Time Being by Annie Dillard.
Who are some of your favorite authors?
Henry David Thoreau and Edward Abbey.
If you could have lunch and chat with any author, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Definitely Thoreau. He loved nature, as I do. His thought process was so deep that I have trouble reaching that level. But I keep trying.
What do you hope to accomplish within the next five years?
Get the second book out. Be the best grandfather I can possibly be.
Actually, in five years, I hope to have two more books finished.
Is there anything that you would like to add? That you would like readers to know about you or your writing?
I’ll say it as many times as I can — enjoy each day fully. We have no promise of tomorrow.
Where can readers get in touch with you? Twitter, Blog, Facebook, etc?
