My Story and the Dallas BAR Asso.

Recent speaking engagment

Well hello all,


I want to thank everyone who reads or keeps up with my work here on Authorsden.  I was recently asked to speak at a the Dallas BAR Asso here in Dallas, TX. 

I was a guess speaker for a training conf. on International Child Abduction.  Of course, anyone who follows my work knows that Child Abduction prevention is my soul reason for what I do.  As a former abducted child I know better than most what a child goes through. 

After sitting in a room with 80+ lawyers I was finally asked to speak.  That lump in my throat quickly engulfed my lips and I choked.  I was able not to show my nervousness to any one in the room.  After I was done speaking there was a short Q&A session.  Many found that having a personal story attached to the legal jargon helped in seeing the other side; the child's side.

One of the nicest compliments I received was being told I should write a book.  As a writer and story teller this was a wonderful compliment.  I of course informed the laywer that I was currently writing a book and hoped to have it published one day. 

I guess in the end of this news blog what I am trying to say is; it always helps when we as writers are able to have a voice.  This allows us to reevalute what we have written and to find new ways to look at our art.

Once again, thank you for following my work and I wish all you the best.  Happy weekend.

Kindest Regards,

Ken Connelly
