"Great Parenting Tool! I began reading this book during the summer before my only daughter left for college. This book is rich with parental coaching on the basics of great communication skills for all family relationships & beyond the family nucleus. It covers so many of the conversations had between parents & their teens. I wish I had read it ten years earlier. What I've learned are tools that demonstrate giving & receiving respect & deliberate choices of words to illicit partnership rather than power struggles. It continually highlights the importance of having mutual understanding in all the relationships. I would also like to acknowledge the author for all the great health tips weaved into the entire book. Thank you for the difference you make by writing your books." ~ Penny S.
Tales of The Soil: A Collection of Inspirational Allegories that challenge the concept of existence, inviting readers to become The Meadow and every creature that calls it home. Venture through time as a dandelion. Experience love, compassion, aging, and learning through the eyes of the butterfly. Explore growth, understanding, and change, as would a droplet of dew.
" . . . a book to be read and discussed at least twice . . . Reminiscent of the Gullivers Travels . . . can be understood on more than one level. From a fairy tale like beginning a story begins to emerge, tying together the lives of the Creatures of the Meadow & their insights as they mature. It should hold a youngsters interest on this level alone. The philosophy is simple, but profound. The imagery startling & moving. The reader is drawn into the story without being aware of having entered. Absolutely delightful, in a thoughtful way, and quite appropriate for a college level English course. Highly recommended for parents who wish to read out loud & explore with the listener, & for teachers of high school English to hook their students on reading for meaning." ~ Mountain Top

POETRY & Gifts
"I first discovered Nancy about 10 years ago. I was visiting my friend Robin who shared with me a poem Nancy had written for her. I can't remember if the poem was for a birthday or a couple's anniversary but after I read it I was completely blown away!!! I had to meet this talented person!! I contacted Nancy and asked her if she would help me celebrate a friend's big birthday by writing a poem about her. She asked me to send her some notes about the person I wanted her to write about. To make a long story short, Nancy has written multiple poems over the last 10 years to people I love. I cannot say enough about Nancy's talents. She is a GIFT!! I'm so grateful for all the work we've done together in the past and for the work we'll continue to do in the future. I love and appreciate you Nancy!!" - Penny Spiwack
