Selected Works

Nonfiction
Leading authors reveal what they believe...and why.
Creative Nonfiction: Anthology
One little word, one casual lie, one devastating announcement and our lives are turned upside down forever. In He Said What? Women Write About Moments When Everything Changed, 25 gifted women writers share profoundly personal moments in which a man in their life said something good or bad that changed them irrevocably.
Some of our country's finest authors share the personal experiences of death...and humor. Their pieces are poignant, funny, intimate, and sometimes downright laugh-out-loud hysterical. Malachy McCourt, Jacquelyn Mitchard, Ellen Sussman, Barbara Graham, Zoe Carter, Sherry Glaser-Love...and more.
Creative Nonfiction: Anthology
Do we devote our energies to beauty and fitness? Do we fight our body ... or befriend it? Twenty-seven gifted authors share their secrets.

Creative Non-fiction: Anthology
When you were a child, how did you imagine yourself as an adult? And now that you're an adult, have you become that person? Leading authors answer these questions.

A cheating husband? An unfaithful wife? A child affected by infidelity? Many viewpoints, from emotional to funny, raging to accepting. All of them memorable! Three weeks on Canada's bestseller list!
Fiction
“The sense of place... past and present, is captivating and profound.”
