There are countless books out there teaching the nuts and bolts of acting; the craft, the business and so on. However, as a young actor, just starting out on my path, I wanted something more. Life as an artist is unlike that of any other career path. There's no straight line to achieving your goals. And being an artist is not the type of job you can simply leave at the office come 5 o'clock. It's so much a part of who you are and seeps into every facet of life. Simply having your craft down will not guarantee success. Because of the unique nature of an artistic career path, a simple book discussing the ABCs of acting is not really enough. Therefore, I wrote the book I wish had been available when I first started out on my journey.
