Book 1: Echoes in the Walls

 The true and hysterical story of selling a new home to tackle a derelict 1840's Farmhouse in the country. 

An old house awakens long-forgotten dreams, and the wheels of change are set in motion. Unfortunately, the idyllic dreams turn to nightmares quickly. Nothing is what it seems--Obstacles litter the path and friends and family see only 

imminent disaster. 

Raccoons in a bedroom, bats in the attic, bones in the basement, and a sinister presence. None of these were part of the plan. It becomes a harrowing--sometimes hilarious,sometimes frightening--roller-coaster -of-a-ride. As the house endures monumental changes, the family must evolve as well.   In finding the humor, they learn to wear life's bruises proudly. 


 Book 2: These Animals Are Killing Me 

A Year of Ridiculous Interruptions - Courtesy of Pesky Wildlife, Quirky Pets and Two-Legged Mammals 

​​Follow a typical chaotic, over-scheduled family through a year of unexpected and humorous true life interruptions. Beginning with the first day of school, the book moves through various scenarios; over scheduled days, disastrous doctor visits, harried trips to the veterinarian, school obligations, the truth behind decorating for the holidays, Mars and Venus moments, family vacation, loss of family pets, and even the absurd things we do to avoid getting older. 

The beloved pets insert themselves daily, creating more havoc than they're worth. The local wildlife saunter in and out of their property with far too much regularity causing upsets, injury, fear and hysterical outcomes.
