"A Life Worth Dreaming About" reviews
--- Scott B.
“A feel good book.“
--- Hannah F.
“I like the easy, accessible style.”
--- Julia Forster, author of “Shadow Jumper”
--- Lisa Lickel, author of five novels, including “The Map Quilt”
“Good straight forward storytelling and the hook at the end of Chapter 1 works well, when we think the excitement is over. ... The writing is quite good.”
--- Tod Schneider, author of “The Lost Wink”
“It was an enjoyable read. Once I got into it, it kept my interest to see where it was going.”
--- Jill Badzinski, former editor West Bend (Wis.) Daily News
“I like the story. Carl reminds me of Patrick Bateman in ‘American Psycho.’ They are both loners and have a fondness for expensive clothes. I like the description in the first chapters of his interaction, or rather lack of it with his colleagues. I think it's good.”
--- Maria Gibbons, author of “Past, Present, Future?”

I'm excited to announce that my wife and I are nearing the purchase of our first home. We can't be more excited for the new chapter in our life.
Have been feeling blessed lately with the great friends, family and support that I have, in addition to finding out I will be a dad in March and will have a home where I can finally lay some roots.
Thank you to all of you!

The folks at the school said if I could speak for about 30 minutes that'd be plenty good enough. It wound up going for an hour. I had so much fun answering so many questions from the kids. They thought it was so cool to be a sports writer and an even cooler to be an author.
The best part about it is when some of those kids, grades 7-9, came up to me afterward and said thank you for coming and that they really enjoyed meeting me and listening to me talk. I had a smile on my face the rest of the day.
What a thrill.

I wanted to take this time to thank all of you for your support. It is sincerely appreciated. As 2013 winds down, it's been a wild ride this year and I'm intrigued to see how 2014 will play out.
While my book sales this year haven't been as good as I was hoping for, I'm still working hard to spreading the word about the book.
I ask that anyone who has read "A Life Worth Dreaming About" to post a review either on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc. Hearing your feedback will help me become a better writer.
I'm still piecing together my second book, which due to some added responsibilities with my full-time work, haven't been able to devote as much time to the project as I would like. But it is coming along, albeit at a slow pace. Trust me, it will get done.
Otherwise, I don't have any book signings planned as of right now for 2014. As soon as that changes, I'll pass it along.
Thank you again for your support and have a happy holiday season.
