      Beth – you’re welcome! He has some other great videos that are not quite as humorous, but still wonderful – I think he’s considered a poet of the “poetry jam” variety.

    Fabulous news about The Maze Runner! Can’t say I’m surprised to see it getting optioned for a movie. It’s going to be action packed for sure!

      Michelle – I have passed my copy on to three people now – and they all loved it as much as I did! And as I read, I kept thinking it would make an awesome movie – it’s such a visual story.
