The first Slideshow is at Liberty Point, where I spoke to the kids about the force of Imagination, the importance of Reading and performed songs from "The Calling of the Protectors." My favorite elementary school teacher, Jodi Bond, was kind enough to host! The second slideshow is a few years before that at what was Pueblo West Elementary school!
Here is a collection of pictures from book-signings I did throughout Pueblo. With the closing of many bookstores over the years, Walden's, Hastings and Pueblo's own Bookery, I lost much of my ability to find local places to present my work. I thank those who did support me!

My Favorite Television shows of all time
1. MASH- combined drama and humor in a very successful way, and also exposed the tragedy of war. Favorite character- Hawkeye
2. Battlestar Galactica- The original. One of the few good sci-fi shows of it’s generation, it was a shame to see the series driven into the ground before it’s time. Favorite character- Apollo
3. X Files- most episodes are better than many movies. The appeal of this show is how they base so many of the stories off of real scientific possibilities, urban legends, and mysterious events. Favorite character- Fox Mulder
Respect Life! My theme this year for 2018 is against bad driving! It is something we can control and don't and people die every day due to this.
Drive Safely! There are hundreds killed every month and thousands injured on our roads due to people texting while driving, not stopping at lights, running stop signs and not paying attention. Some have even called this an epidemic. Respect life and pay attention when you are driving! Go to this website and find out more.
Exist To Inspire!
We inherited the Earth and became the dominant species not because we are stronger than the elephant or bigger than the whale but due our intelligence. It is through this intelligence that we must understand our responsibility to not be takers, but caretakers. Is the world a better place because I am in it? It’s not ok to be the best at anything, unless you’re also being the best person you can be.
Make a Difference!
If you are stronger, it is your responsibility to protect those weaker than
yourself. Your intelligence is a gift so that you understand this
responsibility. This is what I believe.
You don’t have to change the world to make it a better place.
Just start by changing your corner and making it better.
On the Edge of Tomorrow is where I started using the sayings "Exist to Inspire," and "Make a Difference." This has now become a saying I incorporate in all things I do!
