In September 2012 I wrote a book called Life On Fire: A Step-By-Step Guide To Living Your Dreams. I wrote the book in order to inspire and encourage others to live the biggest versions of their own lives and to teach them what to expect as they walk the path to their dreams. You can learn all about the book here. Life On Fire is available to purchase on Amazon for $8.99 here.
