Interesting question. Yes, I suppose there is. As an author specializing in creative non-fiction, my goal is to write books that inspire people to capitalize on the advantages life offers.
I enjoy writing real-life profiles of people who blow me away with their accomplishments. When I'm doing public presentations about my books, I refer to the fact that I've been very fortunate to meet some real top-tier candidates in my life. Such as when you come across someone like Nicole Moore (sharkassault.com) and she goes right to the top of that list. On first meeting her, she gave me a buzz with her positivism: unbelievable, when you look at all the challenges she's faced and overcome in her life. Similarly, there were so many amazing people I met while writing "Why Being Happy Matters" and my newest book "Pushing The Boundaries". These individuals energize me with their approach to life. Some of them have faced real hardships, but they've developed the ability to commit to happiness in their manner and confidence in their approach. That motivates me and inspires me. And I hope my readers feel that way too.
Or consider Ruth Lowe, whose story I'm currently writing (ruthlowestory.com). She poured her heart into writing a song ("I'll Never Smile Again") that a young Frank Sinatra recorded in 1940. It shot straight to the top of the charts, changing both of their lives forever. Talk about inspiring!
So yes, there it is. I write books that, I hope, motivate readers to enhance their lives.
