    THE CRUCIBLE OF ACHILLES~


      It is believed Homer was blind, yet this adaptation proves his vision was far reaching and his insight into the human condition more relevant than ever. The Iliad is revitalized in this contemporary version with a central focus on the epic’s deadliest hero, Achilles. This time, Archie is twenty-seven year old combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, achieving moderate celebrity as the crowd favorite of an underground fight club. Blessed as a fighter, he yearns for a life of peace but is thrust into the greatest battle he will ever know when confronted by a dangerous rival and his own mortality. Homer’s original yarn has been stretched across the millennia, weaving seamlessly man’s battle with himself, his enemies and his God into today’s modern fabric.

    FLIGHT OF THE PICKERINGS: THE DANCE OF LOVE AND DEATH~


      Guy Pickering has the biggest problem of his life. Dorothy, the only woman he’s ever loved, suffers with pain and dementia and has only weeks to live. Years ago, they made a pact. Whomever is suffering, the other will help in ending the pain. He knows what he has to do and he just can’t bring himself to do it. With love and honor in heart and a dread of loneliness, he decides to go with her into the afterlife. But Guy soon finds that he is not good at this sort of thing. A rebellious teenage grandson shows up unexpectedly, a fame-hungry reporter chases them and Guy’s most private event spirals out of control in front of an ever widening audience. Much to Guy’s frustration, Life keeps getting in the way of Death. 



      The Flight of the Pickerings is a love story that wrestles with end of life issues and our right for self-determination. Filled with tender moments and comic twists, this book engages the reader in one family’s final journey, a voyage all of us will take, sooner or later.

    IMAGINE THAT~


      Big-hearted, 8 year-old Mark Leonard lives on the brink of two worlds: one steeped in the hardship of post-World War II America, where his father is consumed by financial woes; the other where he’s buoyed by his exceptionally vivid imagination. In his imagination, Mark is an heroic soldier, a surgeon and a daredevil striving to live up to the ideals of the 1950s. When his family uproots from Queens, New York to start afresh in Massachusetts, Mark finds refuge from loneliness in an unlikely friendship with an eccentric, wealthy, elderly neighbor who has shut out the world following a debilitating accident. Their mutual gift for for conjuring up imaginary worlds to cope with reality -- which for Mark includes the confusing teachings of his Jewish faith -- leads them to push the boundaries between these two realms, exploring the fine line between love, imagination and the existence of God.

    NEVER AGAIN~


      Struck by lightning on her annual birthday hike to a favorite mountain meadow in Colorado, 80-year-old Clara Norwood closes her eyes, expecting to die. Instead, she wakes up on an Elirian spaceship. When she is returned to Earth, however, Clara realizes that the Elirians did more than simply heal her injuries. They also reversed all the ravages of aging, and she is once again a beautiful young woman.


      At first Clara rejoices in her newfound strength and energy, but before long her 80-year-old spirit begins to feel at odds with her youthful body. She is uncomfortable with the all the electronic gadgets of the 21st century and dreads the prospect of outliving her friends and family. She is also mystified by the unexpected attention she receives from men who are younger than her own adult children — and completely unprepared for the new realities of modern dating and romance.


      Faced with the prospect of living her life all over again in another era, Clara wonders if the Elirians would be able to return her to her old body — and what her choice would be if they could…


      “A delightful, thought-provoking, and mesmerizing tale. From its opening in the beauty of the mountains to its final page, this fresh and remarkable story engages with a new perspective on extra-terrestrial beings, cross-generational relationships, the tenderness of aging, the lure of beauty, the folding of time, and the essence of love. I see life through a different lens now.” —Cedar Barstow, author, "Right Use of Power: The Heart of Ethics"
