What People are Saying About This
I was so touched by the book Hard Core Dreamer. It is an amazing story for the artist in us all! (Nancy Melbourne, Visual Arts Director, Orange County High School of the Arts.)
I sat by the harp and read Hard Core Dreamer in one sitting. It made me cry, and I seldom cry. (Giko Rubin, Zen Monk, Mt. Baldy, CA.)
