Welcome to my page! I have designed this page to draw attention to my new book "The Message". The Message is a story about a boy named Ben and his inquisitiveness towards Johnny, the new boy at school, who has multiple disabilities. He turns to his father who gives him a life lasting message that promotes tolerance, acceptance, and love. This story has an amazing message that I TRULY believe in, and I am so excited to be able to increase awareness and finally get the voice out that is so seldom heard.

I love anything that has to do with helping people. I also have a love for nature and the outdoors. My hobbies include kayaking, hiking, camping, playing guitar, singing, and writing. I am interested in setting up interviews with local media. I would also like to set up book signings as well as book readings at local schools and libraries.

My goal is to promote my book and teach the younger generation that it is not ok to bully. I want kids to feel proud of themselves by being the one kid to take a stand for the people so small that they cannot stand up for themselves. I dream of a future for my kids and all kids to be filled with tolerance, acceptance, and love. Here's to making "BullyFree" a reality!!!!!!
