Charities/Royalty Contributions

There is an old Irish proverb that says, "It is in the shelter of each other that people live." From July, 2014, through January, 2021, numerous non-profit charities have benefited, and will continue to benefit, from the book advances and royalties for Firebird, The Lost Concerto, Dark Rhapsody, and now Shadow Music, including these special reading, music, scholarship and therapeutic programs for children:
