Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?
Many of us have spent our lives doing. We strive to please other people and languish after goals and achievements. But this is not where real peace is found.
Being is the vulnerable story of Karl’s journey toward presence and authenticity. It was, at times, painful. At other times it was mysterious and wonderful. Being: A Journey Toward Presence and Authenticity teaches us to be where we are (presence) and who we are (authenticity).
A better life is possible. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it!
Qn 2: Who do you think would be interested in this book, is it directed at any particular market?
Being is for people entering the second half of life. Maybe they have come to a dark night of the soul or a mid-life crisis and realized there has to be more to life. They will see in Being a path forward to accomplishing what their heart desired all along.
Qn 3: Out of all the books in the world, and all the authors, which are your favourite and why?
I love good stories that illustrate a point and help me move forward in my life. I love the novel with a mysterious, wise guide that helps the weary traveller find their way.
Qn 4: What guidance would you offer to someone new, or trying to enhance their writing?
Just write. You will get better through editing and interacting with readers.
