My new book is FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES.It's a sane book on the paranormal, which many view as insane, but which I believe is normal. The weight of evidence may help unbelievers to Know for themselves.

Once an atheist, I now KNOW that we are more than physical bodies in this physical world.

those plated wares so perfect as a backdrop?
A friend once asked me if I'd rather not
have had my retarded child. "Oh, no!" I said,
the words bursting from me. "She's such a

it came from having her." I didn't always feel that
All I’m saying is I knowhow everything can change into its opposite.
I perceive grace as finding, when that moment comes,
what to say to her, something kind, something true.
