I'm Alan Maki - a published author, screenwriter, songwriter, actor and minister - all wrapped into one! I've written 4 books, 700 songs and three screenplays... A Choice to Cherish, Written on Her Heart, Death in the Jungle, and Death in the Delta are my book titles. My screenplay, Sidewalk Singer, has been filmed and is currently in the editing stage, along with 14 original sound track songs in their final mixing stage (see www.sidewalksingermovie.com). I've broken a Guinness World Record for balancing on one foot; run the Portland, Niagara Falls and New York City Marathons; been awarded the Jefferson Award for outstanding public service; been inducted into my high school Distinguished Graduate Hall of Fame; served 3 churches as senior pastor; and rode a bicycle across America. From all of my experiences, I write about life, love and meaningful memories. I know life, I know God, and I know what's universally important. Though somewhat embarrassed to toss this out, I'll go ahead and tell you that my friends call me a Beautiful Soul. May it be so.
I have written many poems, of which you'll find several under my Poetry for Love and Life hubs. And if you're in love, you don't want to miss my hub titled The Absolutely Perfect Wedding Ceremony.
