Who Lives on Your Shelf?

Books are my friends, and friends are everywhere! The words in these books have entertained my mind, my soul, and heart, enriching who I have become.  As a coach, trainer, and creativityologist my friends – these books bring their authors and hang out with me in my library of ideas.


Book Release Announcement

In my youth, I always wanted to be an author. Although I have written literally hundreds of training programs I’m excited to share my first published book, a collaboration.

I am excited to announce that the book I’ve written with two other life coaches and authors, Bela Friedman and Rebecca Hufford has been published, released and is available for purchase through Lulu.com.

Lessons From a Fall, Three Powerful Women and Their Stories of Transformation and Growth are engrossing inspirational stories that will enlighten, inspire, empower and help motivate you to make the critical changes needed in your world.

Lessons From a Fall is a collaborative effort where we share the difficulties of our personal journeys as well as the incredible wisdom we each gleaned along the way.

Our book proves that through grit and inner strength — nothing is impossible.

Our lesson is that although changing oneself can often seem impossible, it can be done. We each write about our personal challenges, sometimes in painful detail that brought us from adversity into love, fulfillment and our current roles as healers of the mind and heart.

Lessons From a Fall makes a great gift for yourself and others who are searching for an engrossing and well-written book to keep by your bedside to read over and over.

    I am Cat’s cousin, and I am honored and flattered by her remarks. I wish you could have known her as a child. The seeds of her artistry and great generosity with others were apparent even then.

    So …. I’m game! Here are the books currently on my night table, iPad, and the back seat of my car:

    Being Mortal by Atul Gawande. He examines old age and dying, in nursing homes and on hospital beds. The way we do things now are borderline inhumane, he argues. Part of it is due to our denial – not wanting to face the inevitable death of loved ones – and part of it is just not listening to what the elderly really want.

    The Buddha Walks into the Office by Lodro Rinzler. Pretty self explanatory. I practice Shambhala meditation, a gentle, life affirming way toward mindfulness. Managing others through compassion and thoughtfulness. What a concept!

    The Republic of Imagination by Azar Nafisi. The authro of Reading Lolita in Tehran invites us to imagine an America “with no borders and few restrictions, where the villains are conformity and orthodoxy, and the only passports to entry are a free mind and a willingness to dream.

    The Art of Slow Writing by Louise deSalvo and Seducing the Demon by Erica Jong. Both books discuss writing from a place of joy. And they reaffirm the importance of “telling the truth in an age of lies.”

    Happy reading! People who love books need never feel lonely.
