The publisher and author partner in an international outreach to distribute thousands of complimentary print and e-book editions of Uncommon Character to correctional institutes, recovery centers, youth villages, assisted living centers, military bases and USOs, veteran’s homes and hospitals, schools and education supporters, missions, and camps. These are the venues where the stories were developed as the author volunteered in them for a decade after his retirement. The author’s continuing purpose is to pay-forward the grace he’d received while seeking release from ignorance, learning disabilities, and poverty.

Uncommon Character serves as a base text in character-building instruction and as supplemental material in a variety of other courses, locations, and venues.

Book requests are welcome via the author’s e-mail:; for additional information, updates, and resources visit the author’s websites and
