David is overwhelmed, falling apart, and moments away from possibly ending it all. He feels there should be more to life – but what?! A stranger appears as David sits on a cliff, and convinces David to try to rediscover the magic of life using five simple keys. As David starts his quest, he learns he may never have the chance to learn the keys.
Journey with David as he tries to learn the 5 Keys To Greatness, and see how the 5 Keys can help you also, as you discover how to unlock your destiny, achieve your dreams, and live your best life. This easy-to-read and enjoyable parable has been described by readers as reminiscent of The Alchemist, Robin Sharma’s The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari, Mitch Albom, The Secret, and more.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I created this concept of The 5 Keys To Greatness and I wanted to share it with the world. The question then becomes, what is the best way to share it with people? I realized that telling the 5 Keys over in a story would be a fast and easy way for people to learn about the 5 Keys and apply them to their own life – to use The 5 Keys To Greatness to unlock their destiny and achieve their dreams.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I mapped out the book and developed the characters off of loose imaginings of certain characters throughout history. Yes, being a parable, or an allegory, I tried to imbue as many things throughout the book with meaning as I could.
David smiled a little. “I do. My name is David. I was sent here to talk to Regina. About some 5 Keys To Greatness thing.”
The lady laughed. “Why didn’t you say so? I’m Regina. Hang on.”
Regina walked around the bar, found the other bartenders, and whispered to them. They waved to David. The restaurant and bar areas were both comfortably busy. Being after dinnertime, but before the witching hour, the bartender and servers weren’t overwhelmed.
Regina came back to David and said, “Come on.”
David jumped up with his beer, and the two of them walked toward the bathroom area. “Where are we going?” David asked.
Regina responded by waving him on to follow her. Her gray tank top and green pants contrasted her dark skin.
In the hallway, past the bathrooms, in a small alcove, Regina pulled down a sweatshirt from a set of hooks on the wall. She opened a door which blended almost perfectly into the wall, revealing narrow, steep stairs reminiscent of European architecture. Regina stepped in and started up the stairs, calling behind her to close the door.
David pulled the door shut behind him and started up the stairs, holding on to the railing. He followed Regina, past a doorway on the first landing, continuing up the stairs. At the top of the stairs was an exit door. Regina put her shoulder into the door to push it open, revealing the roof.
David looked around at the bright neon bar sign, at the seventies-era patio set sitting on a deck made of pallets on the flat roof. They walked to the chairs and sat down.
“Okay!” Regina smiled. “That’s better. I love this place, but sometimes I can’t hear myself think. If we are going to have a real conversation, we need to be able to think.” The music and muted sounds of conversation were now background noise, drifting out of the building and floating up to their ears.
