Written by Ron

Just about everything I believe has been shaped by the written word. But books don't force a belief; they stir the imagination so that you, the reader, eventually draw your own conclusions. We grow richer in spirit when we read, deeper in our understanding of the universe and our role in it. That's why I read. That's why I write. To offer you a bit of myself. Come along on my journey, won't you? There's plenty of room.

  1. First in line for our book signings? Now, that’s just too sweet. Sniff. Sniff. At least we know we’ll have one customer. That’ll make it less embarrassing.
