Today, I'm a television host, international best-selling author, and professional speaker but my journey has been filled with ups and downs.
I served eight and a half years in prison where I fell in love with books and read eighteen hours a day. I taught myself how to write by reading just about everything I could get my hands on, but what helped me most were works by the masters of 19th century fiction.
I taught myself how to speak by carefully listening to other's speak, and reading the speeches of great men and women.
Fortunately, television hosting is natural for me since I truly enjoy the projects I'm involved in.
