D. James Wilson
I'm a U.S. veteran, artisan who has been married for years to my best friend. Family is important and I love spending time with them and watching our theater kid grow up in a loving environment where dreams are supported. My wife is an avid reader who has inspired me to read more books and has always dreamed of creating a unique literary experience for everyone to enjoy. I support her dream by creating various artisan products, and sourcing our organic fresh roasted coffee.
My love of animals of all kinds led me to rescue two dogs from the county shelter; one is a Shepard mix and the other is a Bulldog mix. They have become part of the family and help my wife out by being our Instagram book market models. A couple books that changed my thinking and worldview are:
1) Selections From The Husia Sacred Wisdom of Ancient Egypt Retranslated by Maulana Karenga- "He thinks as heart and mind and commands as tongue whatever He wishes."
2) The Secret by Rhonda Byrne- "See yourself living in abundance and you will attract it(Bob Proctor)."

I'm a curator and consultant of great literature and I produce beautiful literary and continued learning experiences through events and workshops. I'm an avid reader, certified bibliotherapist, coffee aficionado and guide to being your better self. Personal development for expansion is imperative! I OVERstand the anxiety and overwhelmed feeling when you are being called to expand; this is why I created Eclectic Crates, Mental Diet Plans and Book Bundles. I really focus on giving you a bespoke literary experience. I love reading anything that will expand your mind, heart, or soul. If you are looking for a novel to read-I have a couple of awesome suggestions!
1) The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho- "The secret of life is to know how to live a simple life."
2) I Know Why the Cage Bird Sings by Maya Angelou- "You don't have to think about doing the right thing. If you're for the right thing, then you do it without thinking."
My mission in life is to help people find their light and sustainable growth.
