NEW: My first book: STICK WITH IT!

Aloha everyone 🌺 

Mahalo for supporting my music on The Chapman Stick over the years.

After 46 years as a Chapman Stick player (and one of the inventor’s first students), many have told me, “you oughta write a book,” So… I did! It is available now via Amazon Prime in three editions: e-book, full-color, and black & white paperback. You can also read it for free if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber.

My story includes the early history of The Stick from a student’s perspective, and I put you in the passenger’s seat to take you on a ride through southern and northern California, Lake Tahoe, Reno, Maui, Palm Springs, and finally, Sedona. My story includes a lifelong love of general aviation, brushes with UFOs, life as a top two-way radio sales professional, and even forty years in a Buddhist cult. I went from being a straight commission high earner to eventually losing everything, but I stuck with it and finally made the Billboard charts. It’s been a helluva ride- even the bumpy parts!

I hope you enjoy it, and if you do, please leave or send me a review; Nowadays, reviews are super important and worth their weight in gold. Thanks for sticking with me and supporting my music on The Chapman Stick all these years. I’d be happy to give interviews, and if you know someone who should absolutely read this book, please forward it to them and encourage them to contact me.

All the best,
