Episode 36A – Ran – Journey of Faith

Ran lives in Ontario Canada, and as we talked, the temp was WAY below zero. She works in the mental health field, which is what we talk about in the second half, but she views her writing as a major part of her life, starting at the tender age of 6.

She’s also an avid board/card gamer, which I can relate to. Playing games can be very creative and is also a good way to relax.

She is working on publishing her first books but she has been a part of publishing a memoir written by her grandfather. The book has been sitting around for over 30 years and Ran worked to get its story out to the world.

Some of her favorite books:

The bookstore she likes is 2 hours north of here – Chat Noir

Episode 25 – Stephen Batt – 10 Things About People in Cars

Stephen lives in New Zealand, but has traveled the world when he was younger. His experience allows him a unique perspective in his art and books.

His earlier experience in screenwriting – including Jules Verne Mysterious Island – allowed him to realize he wanted to write.

Here is a couple short films that Stephen has made:

Warm Gun – A short film I made a few years back
The Making of Gotcha – A TV pilot I made a few years back
