Temple's Author PageTemple and his books led off the first Author’s Night at the Swedish Church in South Florida. It was a wonderful evening of friendship and laughter that covered everything from the meaning of life, and death, to the secrets of good writing and Indie Publishing. Henrik “Coach” Linder was the Master of Ceremonies. His thoughtful questions, and follow-ups from the audience, turned it into a night where the author learned as much as the attendees about why “writing books” is an important path in life. Temple featured on the PickFu Blog in an article called "When Being Wrong Is The Right Answer." Temple gave a book reading at Brian Beaton's “Mainliner” community in Broward County.
