Embarking on Your Journey

When I first started the journey of writing a book, I will admit that I had no idea what I was doing and whether or not what I wrote mattered. Through the process, I learned that the only important thing was; that it had relevance to yourself and I learned that mattered… literally. The idea came to me one day but I never really knew what lay hidden in the unknown and if you ask any writer the most frustrating phase of writing a book is when you are in the process of writing it. The only one who knows what you are talking about is you and until the work is brought to a completion, it will never be understood.

Embarking on Your Journey                             Answering the Call

I accepted the call and embarked on my hero’s journey to make known the unknown, I set out to complete the great work to find the Holy Grail and earn my atonement with God through the experience called life. I have always been spiritual ever since I can remember but I never really understood what spirituality meant until the later years of my life after I had the experiences of my youth and moved into my adulthood.

In my search to find God, I read many spiritual and among them were books published by Balboa Press. Because of the spiritual nature of Balboa, I felt that the message that I wanted to spread would be received by a company such as Balboa and it was.

The Balboa team was there for the support I needed as an author and thus I was able to bring a masterpiece into this world.
