Meet the Author

Larry Stone of Los Angeles, California, is the nephew of Chaim%u2019s sister. Much like Chaim, from early on, Larry was possessed of a restless and inquisitive spirit. He embarked on a spiritual search, examining Eastern religions, Christianity, and finally the Jehovah%u2019s Witnesses. In May of 2010, Larry encountered Chaim%u2019s book Temple of Diamonds, which had found its way into Larry%u2019s home. Thus began a remarkable spiritual journey for Larry and Chaim. It is recounted in their voluminous two-year correspondence.

Larry holds Masters Degrees in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and Educational Therapy. He has taught at the College of the Redwoods and the Imperial Valley College and is currently working on his PhD in Psychology. He is an accomplished pianist and is passionate about art, chess, traveling, hiking, sailing, exercise and nature. He is also a pilot.
