Chicken Soup for the Soul — John

Barnes and Noble M and J

It is my delight to announce that my short story “John” has been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Find Your Inner StrengthI got to go to a local Barnes & Noble with John in tow and visit the copies on the shelves. We definitely had fun.

If you’re in the Sacramento area, I have an event planned for Thursday, November 13. Books will be available for purchase and signing, and proceeds will go to Best Buddies International. The event will be held at Dewey Square, 1020 16th Street, Suite 20, Sacramento, and we are aiming to start around 5:30 p.m.

Thanks to everyone for the love and support, to Jan for assigning me this essay in the first place, to my family for being wonderful, and to John for being John.

You can read the original essay on which my Chicken Soup for the Soul story is based HERE. Enjoy!


Book signingWow, it’s been a whirlwind few weeks! Thanks so much to everyone who has been so enthusiastic and supportive to me!

The event was featured in Allen Pierleoni’s column in the Sacramento Bee, which was a great help drumming up interest! You can read the article HERE.

The book signing was a wild success. We raised over $600 for Best Buddies International. It was a lovely evening, thanks much to Tamara Torlakson and the team at Dewey Square Group.

Again, thank you to everyone who came out to show their support!


In other news, on November 22, my story was featured on Maria Shriver’s website! I even have an author page there now, which is very exciting.


On December 3, the story was published on The Good Men Project’s website!
