Two books coming soon in 2020!

In the true story Prayer Carrier, Palo Santo shares a remarkable journey that begins when a once renowned artist's illustrations in an antique children's book lead him into the woods on Monhegan Island, Maine.   When a prayer tie is unknowingly carried away from a tree, a labyrinth of synchronicity begins to unfold as Palo Santo journeys through Alchemy, Kabbalah, Christianity, Buddhism, Native American, Celtic mythology and Jungian perspectives that guide him to create a new children's story and unlock a secret language hidden in a magical painting by one of the premier artists in American history.  Painted by “The Wizard,” Frederick Waugh, who entered the same woods over 100 years ago on Monhegan Island, the painting Conclave (Secret Gathering) forever changed Palo Santo, 
and may just change you as well!

A story for all ages..
