I am beyond honored to be able to announce the release of my brand new book, Paddle Home: Poems & Passages!

I sat down with my beloved friend (and book doula,) Adrea Peters to offer insights into the “why” behind this book, the journey it took to write it, and my greatest hopes for those who read it. 

I also share some readings of some of my favorite passages from the book, and unearth the inspiration beneath them. 

My hope is that this book takes you on a journey back to yourself, that it very literally, allows you to Paddle Home; to you.
