Video Content that answers book club questions.

As an adventure travel writer I love to travel and spend time writing about my explorations.  I also love sharing Wai-nani, A Voice from Old Hawai’i with book clubs, but I cannot be available for Skype meet-ups. Brief video clips answering the most common questions I receive from readers about my book seemed a very good answer to this dilemma.  To this end I created an introductory video explaining why I felt the need for a second edition that directs them to my video playlist.

Why a New Improved Wai-nani?

In the story I weave myth, legend, and actual historical incidents that raises the question in the minds of readers “What is True?”   In this clip I address this very important question.

Is the story historically accurate

Each of the thirteen clips I created answer specific questions about the Hawaiian culture. For instance, the death of Captain James Cook at the hands of the Islanders has long been a controversial topic in Hawaiian history, so I presented my position on the matter.

Did the Hawaiians stab Captain Cook in the back?

Here is my response to the question “Did Hawaiians have “Love Games?”

It is my hope that sharing in this way readers will not only come away with a better understanding of the ancient Hawaiian culture, but that they it will give readers a more personal connection with me.   It is my hope that people will find my videos about Wai-nani, entertaining and informative and will share them with friends!
