About Book/Buy Book

In my first book, The Up Side of Down, I include many of the strategies I used to get through the challenges of a paralyzed body, breast cancer, and divorce, and still come through “right side up” with the help of faith, family, friends, and furry companions. It also includes lessons that I learned during my 39 year teaching career.The reader will find ideas about discovering joy, redefining life and goals, and about finding purpose. There are multiple chapters about the techniques I found, insights that I gained, and the tools I used throughout the past 37 years that I have been in a wheelchair.

My book is available through Amazon in both Paperback and Kindle formats: 


 I have also prepared a free, downloadable e-book.

    This morning, tucked in the back of a very special book, I found a piece written (a long time ago, it appears) in longhand by “Robin Williams.” When I put the first line in “Bing,” (“Endings are so hard for me, God…”) your name popped up. However, I could never get to the pdf it cited. This is such a wonderful reading, I would like to obtain an unfolded copy to frame for my wife. Any help would be appreciated!
