The Point of Pointless Work

Lift someone's spirits this holiday season.

An accidental author reflects on five years in publishing and discovers the transformative power of hobbies.

Hello, friends. I’m excited to share news of a new book. I loved working on this one. The cover by Rebecca Green looks stunning, and the printer did a fantastic job.

This is a book for anyone who enjoyed my first two forays into publishing and wants to learn more about that process, or anyone who is looking for a story about achieving purpose in a complicated world.
