I am excited to announce my new writing project, a non-fiction book, How to Talk with Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere, about Anything. The Joy of Mindful Conversation.” This book has been over 30 years in the thinking stage. It is a labor of love, that will give inspiration and practical advice to anyone who wants to seize the opportunity to make every conversation a chance to connect more deeply to themselves, their conversational partners, and our common humanity. The book is a blend of self-help and memoir, appropriate for business as well as those interested in personal growth, mindfulness, wellness, and satisfying conversation in general. It is filled with great stories, humor (even a few cartoons), practical exercises, tools and advice to make conversations more fun and more productive. I am about 1/3 of the way through the writing as of September 2018, intending to submit a book proposal to publishers in winter 2018. Publication and release should be in 2019 or early 2020.
