Loving Frank: A Novel Cover Image
ISBN: 9780345495006
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Ballantine Books - April 8th, 2008

This beautifully written historical fiction novel about Mamah Cheney and Frank Lloyd Wright’s love affair is one of my favorite books. “I admire this novel, adore this novel, for so many reasons: The intelligence and lyricism of the prose. The attention to period detail. The epic proportions of this most fascinating love story." - an online reviewer. Would you give up your secure life to follow your passions? My kind of Valentine's Day story; not a light fluffy romance, but a thought-provoking, well written story about the choices we make and the measure of a life. 

No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference Cover Image

Published: Penguin Books - November 12th, 2019

The groundbreaking speeches of Greta Thunberg, the young climate activist and Time's 2019 Person of the Year.  No One Is Too Small to Make A Difference brings you Greta in her own words. It is a rallying cry for why we must all wake up and fight to protect the living planet, no matter how powerless we feel. 

It also reminds us that, truley, no one person is too insignificant to impact others. I am inspired by young people who are courageous, speak truth to power, and are determined to effect positive changes in our culture and world. Greta could be watching Netflix and hanging with her friends but instead she is fighting for our planet and our lives.
