When Silence Calls


Sometimes a writer doesn’t find a story, the story finds the writer. For years I have encouraged my brother to write down his story. His journey has been no less than amazing. No one could have predicted the course of his life, nor the impact he would have on thousands of deaf children.

upcoming book

G. Dennis Drake is the founder and director of the International Deaf Education Association (IDEA). How he got there is a fascinating tale, and I have been challenged to capture it on paper. This is no small task for me, but I am a willing laborer. With input from Dennis and family, combined with a lot of research, I hope to present his incredible adventure in the pages of a new book.

With barely three chapters under my belt, I’m sure many months will pass before its completion. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.

  1. Forty chapters and the book is almost finished. It is in the final editing stage and has been a journey of laughter and tears. Even though I have read it over many times and made countless revisions, the pages still bring smiles and damp eyes each time. What a moving story.
