In a couple days, my girlfriend and I are heading to Miami for three days, including New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Then, we will board the Carnival Glory for a seven-day cruise, visiting Grand Cayman, Mahogany Bay, Belize, and Cozumel. We have several excursions planned, including swimming with dolphins and stingrays, cave tubing, snorkeling, and renting a wave runner. I’ll make sure to share all of the great photos, videos and stories with you when I return. Happy New Year!
2013 was my first full year of blogging, and it was a great one. I wrote 174 posts and exceeded 20,000 views, reaching people in 118 countries. I also had the honor and privilege of interviewing some of my favorite authors, actors and musicians, including:
- Lisa Scottoline
- Andrew Gross
- Melissa Manchester
- Michael Des Barres
- Douglas Preston
- Jon Land
- M.J. Rose
- Steven James
- Taylor Stevens
- Donald Bain
- Thomas B. Sawyer
- Dick Hill
And 2014 is shaping up to be an even bigger year with interviews already scheduled with 2014 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee John Oates and bestselling author Stuart Woods.

As 2012 comes to a close, WordPress is sending bloggers annual reports culling together interesting statistics about their blogs. Considering I started my blog less than six months ago, I’m thrilled that it has been viewed nearly 5,000 times by people in 85 countries. Thank you to all of my followers and regular readers, including Vic, Hollin and Daniela, among others; your support is greatly appreciated.
Below is a lovely song by Barry Manilow that’s perfect for this time of year. And with 2012 behind us, I wish you all a happy and healthy 2013!
