Author's Book Review of "Ghost Coach"

Danielle's Christmas Wish 

"This is the author's first book. It is a very moving tale about a young orphan girl and her Christmas Wish
that brings a special couple and a young girl together in a way that affects the whole town.
The descriptions of the town and its characters seem painted onto the pages so as to give the reader
 his or her own  personal images of this special place. Well done for a first book."   - Nancy K.

The 7 Gifts of Paradise 
Non Fiction

"An excellent resource for realigning one's view of life. 
Especially valuable as a type of literary GPS for those feeling lost with
life issues, health problems, or setbacks in family or personal life."
  -- W. J. Kowalski PHD, Clinical Psychologist.

"Well written and researched. A very positive approach to explaining life and God & Nature.
It is well researched and very biblically based with plenty of references to guide the reader to
understanding where the in the Bible the information is grounded. Simple yet profound gifts,
left over from Eden are explained and  will be an inspiriation to any reader.
A must read for the sick, lonely,
and downtrodden. It WILL lift your sprits. A parellel offering of
Native American sayings are also provided which are equally uplifiting and provide another culture based
proof of the belief of a greater spirit that lives in all of us and in everything." - NKD

"Your book is a treasure of inspiration, and tribute to God. -- Thank you, Joan Zieg


Taragon - Stardate 2050 

The author's first foray into the Science Fiction genre. 
But by no means lacking in adventure, or romance as they are cleverly interwoven into the story.
A special treat is the author's abundant use of current scientific principles,
theories, and hyphothesis based on the latest information.
  A real treat for both sides of your brain.
This is definitely another book that needs to be made into a movie. - NKD
