Community Book Project


INDEPENDENCE is the next edition in The Community Book Project series, where people come together to submit essays on a particular theme.

This eBook collection offers inspirational true stories in ordinary people’s lives. The stories celebrate independence in its many forms, including career changes, travel transformations, growing pains, and more. This is my 5th participation in the Community Book Project program and these writers are becoming friends through shared interests in writing and sharing personal stories.

My contribution is “Tossing Dreams Into the Wind.” The eBook is an exclusive product offering on Amazon. It’s free on Kindle Unlimited or $.99 as a Kindle purchase. Under the leadership of Donna Kozik, we’re delighted to share with you the results of our collective efforts: the inspirational essays, narratives, and insights.

The intention of this book is to empower you, uplift you, and inspire you to see the special moments of independence in your life.

Thank you for reading—and celebrating—INDEPENDENCE!

As I child, I read and re-read my grandmother’s dog-eared collection of National Geographic Magazines, with the big, bold, beautiful photos. Gigantic maps stretched across the floor with the markings of lakes and mountains. Strange words identified the villages, towns, and cities of far-away lands. My grandmother, a retired teacher, asked questions after I finished reading each article and taught me to think about the impacts of geography on world cultures.

The time I spent with my grandmother certainly influenced my love for travel and my interest in seeing the places that I’ve read about.

Everyday Joy

EVERYDAY JOY is a collection of inspirational true stories about ordinary people’s lives and how we embrace small (and large) joy moments. The stories celebrate with pets, nature, travel, family, and even food.

My contribution, “Early Morning Blessings” appears at the 30% marker on my Kindle Reader. The eBook is an exclusive product offering on Amazon. It’s free on Kindle Unlimited or $.99 as a Kindle purchase.

Our group of 98 writers joined together for a weekend of writing, using technology for global collaboration during this intensive process for developing our community book. 

The intention of this book is to empower you, uplift you, and inspire you to see the abundant joy in your life.

Thank you for reading—and celebrating—everyday joy!
