Lieutenant Colonel Finnegan has served in the army for twenty-four years. It’s been a remarkably unspectacular career. But now he’s transitioning out, and for once in his life, he faces a decision more important than regular vs. light beer. With no readily marketable skills, he has a series of misadventures and ends up in . . . the Army, with a big “A”—the unwieldy leviathan that recruits, trains, and supplies the little “a” army. And it’s not a great fit.

In Finnegan Begins Again, you’ll meet Mamzelle Reynard, the barbecue queen of the South and the owner of Tiger Corp, a new government contractor; COL Harvey, the Army’s innovative and risk-taking program manager; “Sad Sack” Sanders, the former Army Acquisition Corps contract specialist; and a memorable collection of military veterans that save the day on a different type of battlefield.



When Jan Moves to Guatemala with her young daughter to run a medical clinic on the heels of her divorce, she knows the experience will be difficult and life-changing. But she doesn’t anticipate all the ways she will change.

To make sense of her professional, personal, and parenting turmoil in a country with plenty of its own turmoil, Jan finds herself adopting a Maya worldview that weaves together concepts of duality (there can be no light without dark, no joy without pain), harmony with nature, and the importance of connecting to the past to understand one’s present self.

Awash with elements of Maya mythology, history, and culture and innumerable revelations of the compassion, intelligence, and resilience of the Guatemalan people, Bird’s-Eye View is a coming-of-middle-age story that shows how viewing life through the prism of a different set of myths can help an individual understand the familiar tales they have unwittingly followed.



Like so many others, Laura and Jessica are hopeful, romantic, and looking for love. As luck would have it, both women find themselves swept away by the men of their dreams. But as their relationships evolve, patterns and behaviors emerge that reveal the cruelty of both men, who repeatedly force Laura and Jessica through abusive cycles of idealization, devaluation, and discard. These patterns of abuse are characteristic of narcissistic personality disorder and are a methodical attempt by those with NPD to gain full control of their unsuspecting victims and feed their insatiable need for power and dominance.

The road to safety, freedom, and happiness is paved by education, knowledge, and support. The format of If You Knew Would You Say I Do is intended to allow readers to invest in and relate to Laura and Jessica and thereby learn how to understand and escape similar abusive relationships with narcissists.
