"Students were moved by the book as well as your presentation. Student after student was able to make a direct and deep connection between your work and important events in their personal lives. Not only did they enjoy reading the book, but they discussed it with great energy and enthusiasm. This is what outstanding literature is about: making connections through prose to the lives of the readers."
-- Richard E. Lorenc, Associate Professor of Communication & Media University of St. Francis, Joliet, Illinois

"I just returned from our convention and your contribution to our success was wonderful. Thank you for your inspiring book and your generous spirit."
