Yes! I am Catholic

It is important for all of us to know that we are not alone in valuing our faith. When teens hear someone they respect talking about being a Catholic, whether it is another teen, a celebrity, or an adult they admire, they feel strengthened in their own convictions and beliefs. Here teens will read stories by people who could be next-door neighbors, teachers, favorite athletes, or beloved authors, including:

Bill Gullickson, retired Major League baseball player
Catherine Hicks, actress, 7th Heaven
Tara Lipinski, Olympic gold medalist, actress
Tony Melendez, musician
Anne Rice, novelist
Tim Roemer, former congressman
Matt Smith, MTV Real World
Adrianna Trigianni, fiction author

As a lifelong Catholic, Beth was happy to interview people about their faith stories for this book. These stories are from Catholics who have struggles in their faith life, yet they can still proudly say, “Yes! I am Catholic!”

A Cup of Comfort for Breast Cancer Survivors

If stories are medicine, then this collection will help keep hopes up and spirits alive on the road to recovery. Readers will applaud the bravery of 50 exceptional survivors as they tell their unique experiences with breast cancer. Every breast cancer survivor has a different story, but they all have one thing in common: courage. From dealing with diagnosis to undergoing chemotherapy, facing hair loss and possibly the loss of a breast, these fearless women undergo more than anyone ever should. These stories pay tribute to these women and their battles, and celebrate their victories. 

In “The Hoopla About Hair,” Beth shares her experience of turning from brunette to blonde while undergoing chemotherapy. In this stunning new collection, readers will find compelling, inspiring, and uplifting personal essays about the experiences and emotions of living with—and after—breast cancer.

Scenes from the Common Wealth

Experienced and novice writers are presented together in this unique volume of monologues and short scripts. This anthology highlights a significant force in contemporary American theatre-the growing presence of women as playwrights. Award-winners are here, and so are undiscovered voices. They have one thing in common…their individual artistic journeys all include time spent in Kentucky–some for a short while, others for a lifetime.

The Bandana Book

The Bandana Book is a collection of stories with true grit and heart. While Covid was raging, we all had to improvise with what bandanas were available to make our masks. Beyond that, the bandana has had a gazillion uses as universal survival gear (sun protection, splint, sling, water filter, cooling device, carry stuff, bandage etc.). If an old bandana could tell all its stories, what would it say? “I have been a snuff wipe before I became standard cowboy equipment”? Now a dozen authors have put their most creative thoughts on paper. Oh, what a little bandana can do! Enjoy the read!
