GVK gets charged up with Zach Lichtmann, author of Dynamo

Zach Lichtmann brought a dynamic energy to GVK so it is no surprise that his first novel is called Dynamo. And he brings that dynamic force to living his dream.  Megan and I were totally inspired talking with Zach about how he found his way to becoming a published writer, and a damn good one at that.

I believe that living your dream and your passion is the key to a fulfilling, happy and productive life.  Once I found my passion for telling stories through acting I went at with my full being.  My parents were concerned.  How would I make a living? What if it never worked?  What kind of a job is acting?  They were not happy and wanted me to have a “backup” in case this thing didn’t work out. 

My dreams of “telling a story” through acting never waivered, but, it did go through a metamorphosis.  Having children shifted my passion for the life of a struggling actress.  Long hours and late nights with little pay meant not being with my children and that was not something that felt good in my heart.  I had been a struggling actress for close to 20 years.  I felt that the Universe was telling me something when I was asked to come to a 10 hour rehearsal for a 5 minute role of the sleeping nurse on stage.  That meant 12 hours away from my new born baby.  So, I stepped away from it all.  Had I been super successful, it may have played out differently.  But, I trust the Universe, even if it is showing me something that I don’t think I want. 

Soon after walking away, a play began to write itself in my head.  With the encouragement of my beautiful husband, Jeff, I wrote it down and invited 50 friends/family members to bear witness to my new direction in life.  I told them all before I began that I really didn’t know if this was going to be good and that I would let their reactions be my guide.  I received a standing ovation with not a dry eye in the house.  I had my answer.

And so began a new direction of the same passion.  GVK is yet another path of that same passion.  Who knows where it all leads, but, I will keep living my dream Knowing that All That Is rejoices when a soul shares it’s Light in it’s own unique way…
