M oney. Family. Love. Hate. Obsession. Duty. Politics. Religion – or the lack thereof. Sex — or, once again, the lack thereof.
Thomas Baldwin finds himself married to a woman he can’t stand, while head-over heels in love with another woman he can’t have. Talk about bad planning. He is something of a kite, buffeted by circumstances which blow him not only through personal crises, but also through some of the most significant events of the late 1800s, including the railroad riots of 1877, the creation of the Homestead Steel Works, the assassination of President Garfield, and the Johnstown Flood. Over time, and with the help of his muse, who dances maddeningly just beyond his reach, he takes control of his life, wresting it from the winds attempting to control him.

“ The Opening” was selected as a Finalist in the 2012 Global eBook Awards in Visionary & Inspirational Fiction and has been on the Amazon Top 100 Best Sellers List in four categories since it’s publication in October of 2011.
“The Opening” addresses the age-old question ‘what happens when we die?’ with a spiritual fantasy of immense charm and imagination. At once an insightful meditation on life’s passages and a vision of unearthly realms, it creates its own enchanted worlds where characters connect with one another between here and the hereafter across the thinnest of lines.
Joe St. John wanders out into a blizzard and falls through an opening that leads him to amazing, sometimes harrowing places where he encounters the major turning points in his life. Along the way, he revisits his missed opportunities, uncovers his life’s core trauma, and is given mysterious geometrical symbols that hold the key to his future.
As Joe’s soul hovers between two worlds he will discover the truth about life and death, and be confronted with the ultimate choice: save his own life, or give it up for someone he loves.

A secret and unauthorized trip through the chaos of a 1717 London marketplace takes a bizarre twist for 16 year old Tess. Unexpectedly witnessing the murder of a renowned Seer, Tess becomes the keeper of the old woman’s legendary spinner ring and its supposed power of prophecy. Returning home, Tess bears the brunt of her father’s rage when he is informed of her disobedient excursion. An ensuing altercation with her father leads Tess to the discovery of a family secret that stuns her. Even so, she never imagines that she will soon find herself forcibly betrothed to the murderer and trapped on a ship bound for the pirate-infested waters of the West Indies. With increasing dread, she realizes a growing attraction that she has for a handsome sailor puts both their lives at risk. Moreover, she quickly discovers that her ruthless fiance covets her only for her ring and its power, and will stop at nothing to obtain it for himself. The stakes for survival become unbearably high when she is thrust into the hands of a marauding band of pirates, and she must make an agonizing and life-threatening choice for herself. A tale of pirates and treasure, love and betrayal, all bound together by a dash of ancient magic, Quintspinner has been described by readers as “a wonderfully entertaining, fast and furious ride; Lord of the Rings meets Pirates of the Caribbean”.

I n “Gardening for Seniors – Joyous Activities for Elderly Gardeners, with Tips for Reduced Mobility” you’ll find a wide range of information that will inspire you to continue, or start, gardening.
If you’re looking for an activity you can share with an aging loved one, gardening offers the ideal opportunity to do something satisfying and fun together. Bring your children into the fun and you have a wonderful full-family activity where all of you can share in the tending and the enjoyment of what your plants produce.
The Joys and Benefits of Gardening
Whether it’s something you grew up with, or something that is relatively new to you, you’ll come to discover the joy that gardening brings and the benefits it offers, both physically and mentally. This is particularly true as you get older.
There’s something to be said for planting a seedling or young plant, nurturing it along and watching it grow, then enjoying the benefits of what it produces, such as flowers or vegetables. You will watch birds and butterflies enjoying your flowers. You will add fresh vegetables and herbs to your meals. There’s a whole circle-of-life thing that happens.
It simplifies part of your life and brings things back to basics, which is more important than ever in these times of multitasking, 24/7 internet connection, and 800 channels on the television. A garden is where you can find peace and a sense of purpose. It’s the perfect hobby to help you unplug, unwind, and enjoy.
A garden is a place that reassures. It helps you to feel grounded. It soothes and offers a connection to the earth. This is true even if all you have is a handful of containers or a 4×4 foot raised bed.
Gardening is a great way to maintain flexibility and muscle tone. Doing work around the garden is typically more rewarding, both emotionally and mentally, than other forms of exercise. If you’re physically able to tend to a garden, you’ll find that your metabolism can increase at a rate of three to five times, burning calories along the way. It is said that regular activity for around 30 minutes a day is beneficial for your health and for your sleep, which can easily be accomplished with the addition of common gardening activities like watering, feeding, digging, planting, and weeding to your daily routine.
Gardening can become part of a rehabilitation program. Horticulture therapy has both mental and physical restorative effects. Gardening can benefit those who are recovering from physical illness by retraining muscles and improving coordination and strength.
So, whether you’re looking for more “me” time, or an activity where the whole family can participate and benefit from, gardening can be exactly what you need it to be.
Topics range from the basics of container gardening, how to enjoy gardening with your grandchildren, easy vegetable gardening, and how to enjoy gardening from a wheelchair.
Some senior or elderly gardeners find themselves faced with reduced mobility. Let’s face it, as we get older we may find that we’re not able to do all the hobbies, sports, and energetic activities that we’ve been able to enjoy during our 20′s, 30′s, 40′s, and 50′s. Gardening doesn’t have to be one of them. As a matter of fact, it’s quite therapeutic and satisfying.
