This area showcases just a few of my current publications. I'll be updating this continually with more highlights.
Faith, Hope and Healing, by Dr. Bernie Siegel
Inspiring Lessons from People Living with Cancer
Siegel shares the inspiring stories of people who have experienced cancer and found deeper faith, hope, joy, and healing through the process. My story, "A Snowy Quest", is among these stories. Siegel's insightful commentaries will encourage and help readers to develop an attitude and personality that survivors share, while also offering myriad ways to get through difficult times and discover the gifts that illness can bring into a person's life. In this book, Siegel reveals what these people's experiences tell us about our common strengths and humanity and how to live an authentic, fulfilling life. ($24.95)

A Cup of Comfort for Military Families ( Featuring my story --"Debt of Honor")

In this collection, readers will experience the pride that wives, husbands, mothers, fathers, siblings, and friends feel when a loved one chooses to put his or her needs aside for the benefit of the country.
Featuring stories from the current Iraq war as well as stories of servicemen and women who have long retired from the armed forces, this timely collection will span generations.
