Don’t Shoot the Messenger: 5 New Thoughts on Gun Violence

I come from a family of gun enthusiasts. My younger brother is a firearms instructor in Iraq. My older brother, who lives in Atlanta, keeps a handgun tucked in his waistband. Even my 66-year-old mother is taking up arms, having just earned her permit to carry a concealed weapon in Michigan. Recently she held up her paper target for me to see: two bull’s eyes! Her exuberance seemed to expect matching enthusiasm from me.

My Children’s Book Funded on Kickstarter!

It’s so exciting to have this book funded in just 2 weeks, and it’s all thanks to you! I’m so grateful for the amazing support. LET’S KEEP IT GOING! Why overfund? As those who work with energy know, like attracts like, and good snowballs into better. Everyone loves a winner, and the satisfaction that comes with being part of a success story feels pretty good too. In this case, more money means fees and rewards are easily covered, and promotional materials can be produced, but more importantly, it makes the second book in the series possible.
