Tell us a little about yourself. I am a retired self employed business man. I have always been an adventrous person. For sport, I love sailing and sail boat racing. I also love to read books and watch movie with great plots and well developed characters.
I did not get married until I was 40 and two years later was blessed with a beautiful daughter. As a father I got the oppoutunity to watch the best story with the best characters unfold as I watch my daughter grow up. To this day it is a never ending wondetful story.
What was your motivation behind this project? After experiencing my daughter growth from tot to teen and beyond, a story about children and family life began to develop in my mind. Figuring out how to write a story to share my experiences as a father watching his child groe up was the challange. I finally centered on a childrens / adult Christmas Nativity story where I wrote about a shepherd family of seven with five children ranging from tots to teens who journeyed to the nativity. Never before has a story been written where a family went to the nativity I featured the children play prominate roles in the afventure of going to the very first Christmas.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? The mission or purpose of my Christmas story, The Very First Christmas Stocking And The Gifts of The Seven Coins is three fold. Help bring the the baby Jesus back into a more prominant role in the celebration of Christmas. The was accomplished with the very first Christmas stocking that his mother, Mary made for Him. Introduce seven virtues thst will bring peace and goidwill to all. These virtures are teflected in the gifts of the seven coins. Underscore the importance of the famly.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I was profoundly impacted by this work. I have been very fortunate in my life to achieve several good things but with this work I was able to convey a story with 24 wonderful and engaging charachers that would as a family, translate their experience of not only the very first Christmas Eve but also the Very First Christmas Day that covered all Christmas events thst are enjoyed today.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My influences are many, but holistic my influences are many great stories by all authors including the self published. Illustrations as I consider art is of great influence kn that a picture is worth a thousand words. Real life in real time is also and probably the best source of influence. It offers a hands on view as how all life come together.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Life is an adventure. It embrases all experiences known to man. Life experiences are the source for all stories. This is why there is at least one story in each person.
