In 2013 I was approached by the staff at This I Believe to contribute an essay to their newest collection, This I Believe: Kentucky This was one of the most rewarding projects I have been involved with. The added bonus of having a co-author credit with Muhammad Ali and Silas House was pretty cool too. The book is available in stores now.

From the publisher:

“This collection of This I Believe essays gathers sixty thoughtful explorations of the core values and guiding principles of authors from Kentucky.

“The contributors range from former heavyweight champion Muhammad Ali, to Spalding University President Tori Murden McClure, to Kentucky Poet Laureate Frank X Walker, to best-selling authors Silas House and Sena Jeter Naslund, to ordinary Kentuckians from every corner of the Commonwealth and all walks of life.”
