BIG NEWS — A new book!!!
It may seem that I’m slow to make updates, but I am always hard at work behind the scenes. I’m proud to announce one dream turned into reality — my new book, Breathless: The Oxygen Apocalypse.
It’s my debut sci-fi book about a world that runs out of oxygen. This may be my magnum opus. I put everything I have into this book, including years of research.
Upcoming adventures & articles
Here are some dreams slowly becoming a reality. I set dreams out like a carrot in front of a donkey. It keeps me feeling hopeful and motivated. No doubt, I will fail at many, but, in retrospect, I’m proud of some of my “failures” too.
- New worksheets for adults. I’ve partnered with a friend to turn some of our life wisdom into practical exercises.
- I moved to California! So, my adventure to kayak the length of the Ohio River got canceled, which seems okay. After the train derailment, I learned that the Ohio River is the most polluted river in the country, which would have made this journey unpleasant.
- I’m heartbroken to report that I didn’t get the job as author-in-residence in Antarctica. Maybe next year.

The Hero Series
Are we born with a special purpose?
What does it mean to be a hero? Does the world need to be saved? If so, who will get the job? I know I feel that I was born with a special purpose, and most people I talk to feel the same way. This series is an exploration of whether life is a game of king of the mountain, or if we are all gifted in our own way.
The oldest and best collection of bicycle quotes on the web
Riding a bicycle is the greatest metaphors for life! Well… at least, we think so. That’s why I started collecting these timeless quotable quotes way back in the early 1990s.
Scott's quest for happiness around the world on a bicycle
Scott asked himself, “If I could do anything, what would I do?” His answer turned into a 4-year and 25,752-mile odyssey around the world by bicycle, searching for happiness and the meaning of life.

Our new website for kids and their parents, teachers, and caregivers
I believe everything is an adventure, and all good adventures start with a dream. So I teamed up with like-minded people that wanted to teach kids these valuable life lessons.
In 2018, we published our workbook Dream It! and matching website Dreamaplay.com to teach kids (and adults) how to dream and how to turn those dreams into reality using our easy 3-step formula: 1) Dream it! 2) Map it! 3) Play it! We use traditional pencil-and-paper games and evidence-based activities that teach important concepts, and put them into action right away — because we all know that kids learn by doing — playing!
Dreamaplay.com is full of free resources for kids and their parents, teachers, and healthcare providers. It was over 4 years in the making, and everything was tested in real-world classrooms.
