An Unlikely Hero’s Journey…
WALK: Jamie Bacon’s Secret Mission on the Camino de Santiago
Winner, Juvenile Category. New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards 2021.
WALK is a tale of mystery, mishaps, and maybe even miracles.
Jamie Bacon has no idea he’s going to end up a hero. He’s just mad that his parents are making him walk 500 miles in Spain as part of their home-schooling plan. Come along as Jamie changes his mind, because every day on the Camino can be a surprise and an adventure. Follow him as he makes a secret deal with two pilgrims, meets a charging bull, stops vandals, and way more.
And then discover what he has carried, unwittingly, into Europe’s most famous pilgrimage city. Read More about WALK

Awesome change is happening way too fast on our planet. It looks scary. For me, big questions are: Will I stop blaming and rise to this demanding spiritual, political, personal opportunity to be part of the Solution? How shall I re-invent my life? Spend my time? My money? My goodwill, my energy? What’s most important this year? How do I reside in joy, love, grace? How do I trust, act, and have fun? Where shall I put my creative energy? And what can I learn from others like you, dear reader?
