You Guys! My Book is Being Published!

I am pleased to officially announce that I am now a contracted author with She Writes Press*. We are set to publish my memoir Kicking and Screaming: a Memoir of Madness and Martial Artsspring 2021. 

Kicking and Screamingtells the story of my emotional and mental transformation as I began taekwondo training and successfully tested for my first degree black belt. Some lessons came naturally; others were learned the hard way. Taekwondo has indelibly changed me inside and out, and I am so grateful to the life I’ve been able to build because of it….and my book is funny…at least I think it is.

I so greatly appreciate the support and encouragement I’ve received from my readers over the last five years. I’m glad my stories have given insight, ideas, and inspiration to people around the world. Taekwondo is not just punching and kicking. It is a lifestyle, a philosophy, and a mindset. The indomitable spirit of taekwondo is available to everyone, whether or not you ever set foot in a dojang.

I will be providing periodic updates on my main blog Little Black Belt:, and this site: Kicking and Screaming The BookTentative publication date is spring 2021.

A thank you, a bow, and a fist bump to all of you. It’s finally happening!!!
