Since these books are the property of big publishing houses, they are only available in bookstores or on-line sites like Amazon and Indiebound. I wish I could offer them as gift, but the traditional publishing economy hasn’t caught up with a gift economy yet.

The Tao of Forgiveness

I hadn’t planned to write this book. The publisher asked if I could write a book of stories and lessons on forgiveness. I said… “I’ll try.” The result surprised me. I didn’t know I could write stories. I like the book.
