#1 Best Selling Author

As a #1 Best Selling Author of three published books and multiple award-winning speeches, I respect the hard work necessary to compel others to hear your story. My passion is to speak on stage and see the twinkle that transpires in the eyes of the audience. Once I realized my stories could move mountains across the globe through the power of written words, I knew it was time to put pen to paper. My published works: Eat, Drink, and Be Mary: A Glimpse Into A Life Well Lived, It’s Not Luck, Overcoming You  and The 13 Steps to Riches – Habitude Warrior Volume 1: Desire are now available. Each book was written with passion to uncover compelling messages designed to inspire every reader to unlock their true potential. We all have a story that is worthy of sharing, so take the time to read mine and reflect on yours.

EAT, DRINK, AND BE MARY: A GLIMPSE INTO LIFE WELL LIVED

This book is the chronological story of how I met and became a part of Mary’s family. Mary constantly inspired life lessons about how to truly live and her advice is transcribed into this book. Mary Mras was a remarkable wife, mother, sister and daughter, educator, and a teacher of all. Anyone fortunate enough to cross her path surely felt her magnetic presence. Mary lived her life with intention and by example, showed us how to live a fulfilled life not by being famous or boisterous, but by simply sharing a smile, laughing through tough times and loving her family. It’s my hope to share small glimpses of a phenomenal woman, as she influenced my life, as a teacher, mentor, friend and mother-in-law. Throughout this story are Mary’s words of wisdom which are in bold italics. This book also contains e-mails from Mary’s husband, Tony, that give us an up-close view of her battle with Leukemia. The Epilogue is the story of how a sudden event forced me to re-evaluate my life to be more like Mary. The end is a list of ‘Mary-isms’ on life.

Eat, Drink, and Be Mary is available traditional and audiobook formats so you can devour the lessons and be inspired everywhere you go.

The Secret of Life - Decoding Happiness

If you think, this is simply a self-help book, then it perhaps loses its essence right that moment. It travels into a genre that perhaps isn’t very common; a perfect blend of fact-fiction that brings about the way that the brain functions; to imagine anything and then logically do what it is trained to. What we observe is that dealing with emotions or talking about it isn’t very simple and maybe not even encouraged as it most often is misinterpreted as a sign of ‘weakness’ and slowly the inability to traverse through the feelings corrodes the very shard of one’s existence leaving them hanging out dry. The Book turns the readers’ attention back to the levels of the mind that hold the Secret to unravelling what stops them from creating a great life.
