Lately I’ve been taking an intentional step back from Author Things and focusing more on the side of Connection Things. What that looks like: spending more time with my friends, really diving deeply into community, stepping more into leadership and facilitation, and, as of today – starting a company!

My good friend, Scott Gregory and I were wanting to collaborate on something.

“Where do we both feel mastery?”

Easy – working with kids and teenagers.

And so we decided to take the tools we’ve learned from Authentic Relating* and bring them to teens and teachers to help today’s youth feel more present, more connected, and more compassionate. Just a day later, we were already getting booked for our first events – and we hadn’t even thought of a name for our new business yet!

Well, now we have a name, and even a very snazzy website.

Present Company.

Check it out and get in touch if the work we’re doing is something that you or your teenagers need in their lives.


For those of you who don’t know, JUST CALL ME IS: AN INTRODUCTION TO MINDFULNESS is coming out oh so soon, on December 1.

A mere 26 days later, I have another book coming out called THE TIMELESS TALE OF PETER ABLE. It’s not a book on mindfulness – but it is a fun look into the world of Fiction; what goes on behind the page when we’re no longer reading. It’s the second in the best-selling Peter Able series.

All that to say, somehow, I felt I just wasn’t busy enough, apparently, because just last week I began work on another book; a sequel to JUST CALL ME IS. That’s right – you heard it here first. There will be a sequel to “Is.”

(As a matter of fact, there will be at least three in the series, if not more.)

The entire series will be told, once again, from the reader’s Inner Self. Now that we’ve gotten an introduction to mindfulness and totally nailed it, we can dive deeper into some of the most pressing issues that kids face today. In book two, that means body image.

This has been an issue I’ve had my own demons with since I was a kid, and honestly, I don’t know a single person who isn’t affected by it in some way. So, once again, I’m introducing a story, a journal, a workbook, and really, a friend, to the kids who need it when they need it most.

Expected release: 2017.

Don’t worry – I’ll keep ya posted. 🙂
