A nice review of my book from Denise Porter, photographer, writer, and a strong voice in our community. She is Ruralite Magazine’s Writer of the Year for 2014.
“What can I say about this author?
“He lives here, in our town. He strives every day to make a difference in the lives of each person he knows.
I am honored to know him, to have interviewed him, to read his first book.
“Don’t read it if you want to feel comfortable. You won’t. You’ll squirm and feel horrible about the things that happen everyday in our little town to people you know and see everyday.
“You’ll also feel empowered—by Neal’s honesty and integrity and love of his fellow human beings.
“When I sit down and am honest with myself, THIS is what I am striving for in my life. I want to positively impact people. I am not interested in status, bank account tallies or having the “right” connections, clothing or car.
“I AM interested in living a life that is beyond mine. I want to make people feel valuable and I work to capture that through my writing and photography.
“If these are your life goals, may I suggest you read this book?
And then, would you please go one step further and ACT?”
