My book, Kilimanjaro: One Man’s Quest to Go Over the Hill, is a finalist for the 2012 Global Ebook Award in the Inspirational/Visionary – Non-Fiction category. The book is a memoir that chronicles my attempt to summit Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. At forty years old and on the verge of a midlife crisis, I tried to change my life by climbing a mountain. This is my true story of facing Kilimanjaro and other challenges at middle age.

Readers have called Kilimanjaro “life changing,” “inspirational,” “an epic journey of self-discovery,” and “a peek into someone’s personal travel journal.” It’s a book for anyone who feels over the hill and needs encouragement to make a life change in the face of difficult odds. It’s also for the casual climber, mountaineer, or hiker who is interested climbing one of the world’s tallest mountains. Filled with insights and advice for those who are contemplating their own Kilimanjaro climb, my book will put you on the mountain and inspire you to go over it.

Wow! That is brilliant news! Hey – does that mean I can say I know a celebrity? 🙂
Thanks! Ha ha, not yet. You must be confusing me with my doppelganger, Charley Sheen. Once upon a time, that was a good thing!
This subject matter is so interesting, and I can see why an ebook about the mountain is popular! I have some videos about it which can be viewed at http://youtu.be/s_ApR647ycQ
Thanks! I hope you enjoy the book. I watched your video about the Machame Route. It’s a different route than the one I took, Rongai. But it brought back memories! Thanks for sharing.
