for the beginning of 2019 i am excited, as well as a bit hesitant, as i journey into my personal journals and create two books for you to read. i have spent countless hours in my favorite coffee shops around kansas city, as well as consumed plenty of great wine late at night, to put together these two stories. the first titled ‘THE LAST RIDE’ is a story about my moms final months before she passed. i have included a lot of personal narrative in this one, as well as, some pictures from those final vacations we took together. my second book entitled ‘DENBIGH ROAD’ tells a longer narrative to a dream of mine that came true. it was 10 years in the making, and how i had to finally close the door on that dream realizing not all dreams are meant to be.
