About the author:
After spending over 30 years in public education as a teacher and school principal Mike Woodcock was challenged one day with helping his wife follow her dream of writing and publishing a book. Following the idea that necessity is the mother of invention, knowing that his wife wanted to self-publish her book, he researched the best strategies for self-publishing and with this knowledge, helped her publish her first book, Daily Spiritual Tools and three more e-books so far.
This experience sparked an interest in, and enthusiasm for, helping others fulfill their dreams of publishing their own books. Mike now spends his days split between hiking the sierras, following his own spiritual practice, and traveling the world sharing his self-publishing insights and strategies.
