“Just Listen to the Song of your Soul” is my first literary labor of love. A sweet, childhood memory at the ocean’s edge as well as my special connection to it inspired me to write this book. Since I ponder so much at the surf, it led to including a collection of chapters on life’s virtues and challenges we all face.

I enjoy taking my readers surfside to experience the love that many of us have for the soothing effects of the sea and its ability to restore the mind, heart and soul.

My hope is that you’ll relate to what you read and will live your life more consciously to connect to the inner truth of your spirit within.
