"Beyond the Snows of the Andes," is available on Kindle and paperback. This memoir takes place in Bolivia, one of the poorest, most exotic countries in South America. Bolivia is a landlocked country dominated by mountains where the majority of the population is of indigenous origin. Against this setting we have the story of a young girl who must make the ultimate sacrifice to follow her dreams. Her story is the story of millions of immigrants all over the world. It's a story about the universal search for freedom, as vital to our existence as the air we breathe. It's a story of heartbreak, loss and self sacrifice but also a tribute to the power and endurance of the human spirit.
"A Different Journey," is also available on Kindle and paperback. This book deals with the birth of my beautiful, exceptional daughter, who was born with Down Syndrome, and the many challenges we both face daily. But aside from the difficulties, this is mainly an uplifting story about the deep love we share, a love so strong, it's more powerful than the illness. It's about cheating the fates and learning to live a joyous life regardless of the difficulties. It's about acceptance and surrender and learning to value people as they are.
"Jill and Mickey," is available only on the Kindle. This is a short story about two extraordinary birds and the joy they brought to my life. A sweet and tender story, it should appeal to all animal lovers, not just bird lovers.
"Six Months of Wonderful," is also available only on the Kindle. This is the true story of an unforgettable cat. Her arrival into my life was one of those rare surprises that life throws at you at times when you least expect it. This is a sweet, tender and ultimately heartbreaking story of love, loss and the bond we forge with our animals, a bond that doesn't necessarily take years to develop. A short relationship with a special pet can be just as intense and valuable, as a long one, as you will see if you join me in this journey.
"The Dark Path of Julie E," is a novel based on true events that touched my heart. A beautiful girl dreams of an extraordinary life and gets more than she bargained for. Fame and fortune are always enticing but Julie wasn't prepared for its aftermath.
