I have been very fortunate to have had experiences that are worthy of sharing. With Parkinson’s, I have stayed otherwise healthy, and I’ve developed what I call the Warrior Mentality. I wrote about this and more in my Parkinson’s Warrior series of books. In addition to the books, I have created an entire Facebook community of over 6,000 people developing and using the Warrior Mentality, helping them through their illnesses. In addition, I have written a textbook about Media Literacy (a part of my teaching and my main academic area of interest).

Parkinson’s Warrior: Fighting Back and Taking Control (2019) is the first in the series of books for people with Parkinson’s. It includes information, inspiration, and experience. It is the book I wish I had when I was first diagnosed. Most of the information in this book cannot be found online, yet every person with Parkinson’s will instantly relate to every last word.
Parkinson’s Warrior: Deep Brain Stimulation, a Journey to Relief (2020) is about my journey with deep brain stimulation, not a cure, but the closest people with Parkinson’s have to a miracle. This incredible, but scary procedure can dissuade people, but I’m living proof that it can make your life better. My entire journey with the surgery is discussed: the good, the bad, the ugly.
Parkinson’s Warrior: Guide to Supplements, Natural Therapies, and Medical Marijuana (2021) is my response to all those people with Parkinson’s wanting a more natural or holistic approach to treatment. I begin with the fact that there are a lot of scams out there, and I teach you how to avoid those. I present the reader with factual, scientific evidence of what works and what doesn’t.
Media Literacy: An essential guide to the critical thinking skills for our complex digital world (2020) is the third edition of my popular text used in classrooms around the world. The book discusses how the media work, how we can think critically about the information we receive and ways we can respond in order to improve ourselves and our communities. The book discusses different media types individually, shows how they are similar and different from one another, and includes lessons and lesson plans for in-classroom use.
