My first writing efforts documented the amazing journey I was on and were printed as stapled booklets. They may appear amateurish today, but to me they were a complete wonderment and awesomely beautiful and still are. They are one of my prize possessions from my archives where I have examples of the growth process from these humble beginnings to the perfect bound books I do today! The initial printing was 100 of each story which resulted in 700 booklets! I bought my first book press in August 2004 and started Living The Dream Publishing at the instigation of the Holy Spirit. Jane Schaeffer's book project was immediately given to me and I was in business. Jane had worked on her book off an on for over 30 years at that time and had pretty much given up hope of ever getting it published. God had other plans! Jane has impacted hundreds of lives with her book, From Seed To Eternity, and her other books as well. She just turned 100 years old last month. In December 2004 I was given complete publishing rights to a world-famous book, one of the first ever written about Elvis Presley not really dying, The Presley Arrangement. This book is still one of my bestsellers. Through the years I have helped a myriad of authors get their books ready and published, and that is one of my greatest joys.

Clay and Barb Peterson celebrated the release of their first book in April 2012 and will be getting hardcover books printed and available late 2013! I was blessed to be able to help with this project! This is an amazing story of Clay's death in Viet Nam, a trip to heaven and back to undergo over a year of surgeries to repair the horrific effects of 38 major wounds! An incredible story! Must reading Clay is one of the Vets America honors and treasures for his sacrifice!!! Click book cover at left.

HOW AND WHY I BECAME AN AUTHOR AND PUBLISHER
February 16, 1997, at 1:28 p.m. I died. In one heartbeat I went from life to death and back to life-a totally supernatural and indescribable experience. Through the intervention of a mighty and loving Savior, Jesus Christ, I was restored to life and have treasured every day since then. That miraculous event is shared in my book, Destiny Arrives, 15 amazing stories about discovering what life is really all about and most of all how very precious it is. This event gave me an obsession and relentless passion to pursue my purpose in life. I've never lost that. It is as strong today as that moment in 1997. In the first days of my new life, I had this conversation with the Living God: "I’ll do anything you say, Jesus, just tell me what to do. I want to make a difference for You." "You are my little writing sheep. I want you to write for Me." "Write? What could I possibly write? Everything has already been written. There are thousands of books about You on the market. Besides, I’m just a new little sheep in your fold; surely You must have lots of qualified people to write for You." "Write for Me. My Holy Spirit will lead you. Write and print it in books to feed My sheep. This is My work for you."
I also design jewelry, some made from authentic sea-washed and tossed beach glass
Above is a pic of the beach on the edge of the Pacific Ocean in WA State that God supernaturally directed me to 11 years ago. It has had many prophecies through the years that it will be a sanctuary for many when tremulous times come. Those times are here in 2013 America.

Ok, learn something unique about me:
I believe in having fun! Life is simply too short to do anything else.
The pic on the left (after the morph program) is from a crazy birthday party 2 years ago for a friend. We all wore Dollar Store hats. I love the pic but not the hat.
I put the pic through one of those fun 'morphing' programs and somehow it managed to shut my mouth. My mouth is open in the original pic as shown on the right.
I am not skilled with graphics programs, but I decided to take a shot at removing the hat and putting in hair. As you can see on the right, this was less than perfect, but at least the $1 hat is gone!
There, now only those who read all the way to the bottom will have this titillating bit of info! :)
