Colorado Dad himself I’m a 40-something Asian-American single father to the most amazing little boy in the world.  My family is originally from Hawaii (I’ll have plenty of stories about them as well!).  I’m Japanese, Chinese, Korean (which if you know anything about Asians, that’s technically impossible.  I may be the only one LOL), Hawaiian, English, Irish, Spanish and probably a whole bunch of stuff I forgot.

By trade, I’ve been involved with Sales, business and IT consulting for most of my adult life, but my interests have wandered all over the earth and beyond.

I’m really here to discuss my experiences being a single father, with hopes that my son will grow to love all the aspects of his heritage as much as I have…even though they puzzle the hell out of me. My boy means everything to me, and it’s my goal to make him aware of the dangers in life without being obsessed with them. To give him all the tools he’ll need to make good decisions, and to allow him to experience the beauty of life through his own eyes, not mine. So, welcome! I hope you get a few laughs, and join me in a little discussion once in a while. I’ll put on a pot of coffee and…make sure you take your shoes off at the door 🙂

    The Dads Behaving Dadly project is in search of good dads to acknowledge in a new book. My co-author, Al Watts, and I invite dads to submit a story about their life as an involved dad. Please visit the website at http://dadsbehavingdadly.com/ for information about the mission, goals, how to submit a story and updates on the book’s progress.

    If you agree with the project’s mission and goals, submit a story and spread the work. Also read the wonderful story submitted by Jason Ward of Benbrock, Texas on the Sample Story page and comments from other dads on the Praise for Project page.

    If you have any questions, contact me at hilling@roadrunner.com.

    Dear Colorado Dad:

    Hope you’re doing well! And BTW–Colorado Springs is my hometown–and I’m a passionate home-recorder–so we’ve got a few things in common!

    I’m a widely published writer for children and adults. Ignore this if it’s irrelevant to you, of course, but I’ve done a TV interview on children’s lit. and I thought you might be interested in maybe including the link on your site or some such. I find that most parents are generally interested in this topic. If it makes any difference, I’ve got four new children’s books under contract just now.

    But no pressure, of course! I won’t take it amiss if this isn’t something you can or choose to do. And no need to reply! I realize, of course, that this may simply be something you don’t do.

    I’ll put a blurb and a link below.

    Why is good children’s literature so powerful, so magical? How can the complexities and force of great language and art be presented to young readers? How do we best use the master-power of Story itself to enrich not only the lives of children but our whole culture as well?

    If you’re interested, check out my interview with the wonderful TV series “The Better Part”–it’s on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Iz27TcQK6A
