I'm an author, artist, and host of the "Living from the Soul" podcast. On my father's side, I'm a distant relation of Henry David Thoreau (Torode and Thoreau are alternate spellings of the same family name, originating on the Isle of Guernsey). On my mother's side, my ancestors include Texas farmers, preachers, outlaws, and old-time country musicians. My novel, "The Dirty Parts of the Bible," reflects both sides of my heritage, combining philosophical exploration with a quest to Texas. After finishing "Dirty Parts," I went on to create a series of short books paraphrasing my favorite philosophers, making their ideas more accessible to today's readers. These include Marcus Aurelius, Epictetus, James Allen, and my favorite of all, Ralph Waldo Emerson. I also enjoy singing and songwriting, and have performed Frank Sinatra tribute shows. You can hear my original song "Two Too Shy" by clicking the video on my Amazon author page. Visit my website: www.samtorode.comRead more Read less
