Chosen by a Horse by Susan Richards
Book DescriptionWhen Susan Richards agrees to take on one of the abused horses just rescued by the local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, a new chapter opens in her turbulent life. Caring for this astonishingly trusting creature, she begins a relationship that will change her view of the world. Susan Richards lost her mother at the age of five and was raised by uncaring relatives; married unhappily and divorced, she had also become an alcoholic. At forty-three, she found herself living with just horses for company: the diva-like Georgia, boyish Tempo and hopeless romantic, Hotshot. While Susan is vainly attempting to capture the rescued horse assigned to her, a skeletal mare called Lay Me Down walks into the horse trailer of her own volition. Susan takes her home, and this broken and badly treated animal proves to her that trust is not just for dreamers. Beautifully-written, poignant, and often sharply funny, this memoir is an inspiring must-read for anyone who has ever loved a horse, and anyone who has ever lost their way in life.

From Scratch, Paperback / softback (October 2015)
At age sixty, Sally Paradysz breaks the mold and breaks the law as she lives in a tiny tool shed on her land while building her house and rebuilding her life. Recovering from a tension-filled, thirty-five year marriage and a violent rape, Sal reconnects with her true self and with nature, facing old fears, building new strength, and becoming whole.
Lost and Found in Russia, Paperback (December 2010)
Far from Moscow and St Petersburg, there lies another Russia.

This work reveals how in Russia the past and the present cannot be separated.
