RIGHT NOW, in this moment, are you living with purpose, clarity, and focus? It is so easy to lose touch with our love of life—to get lulled into a state of semi-consciousness by our daily routines—to lose perspective and forget the reason why we get up in the morning—to drift into autopilot mode where we mindlessly go about our day instead of living with purpose and clarity.

HAPPINESS & HEROISM is a two-book series consisting of two letters from a father to his children that impart lessons on loving life and walking a noble path. The first book, The School of Being, teaches the philosophy of the fundamental goodness of existence; mindfulness of true reality; humanity’s innate tendencies to feel stress, fear, anger, boredom, and depression—and the antidote. The second book in the series, The School of Doing (not yet released), is a guide to action. It teaches how and why to choose one’s actions with purpose, using principles that can be continually refined as wisdom is gained throughout one’s lifetime.

Happiness & Heroism is available in hardcover, ebook, and audiobook narrated by the author.
Sage wisdom and step-by-step instructions for a fulfilling life. I finally feel that I am on the right path.
