My Newsletter: Ready for Rain

ready for rain icon

Ready for Rain is a personal newsletter. Each week, I share personal stories, and updates on projects in my life. Lately, my focus has been moving to an island off the coast of Washington State, running on web-based business, a house construction project, and a book publishing project.

If you’re interested in knowing me better, this newsletter is your best resource.


I publish every Tuesday evening and would love to have you aboard. Once you subscribe, I’ll send you a link to download all 52 posts from 2019 as an ebook (pdf).
