Emails from the Edge

'Emails from the Edge -
The Life of an Expatriate Wife'

'Emails from the Edge' provides a rare glimpse into the life of an American woman struggling to live in a foreign and alien land. Her life is played against the life of her friend back in the States. 'Emails from the Edge' is a collection of actual emails exchanged between Margie, who was living in Japan, and Sandy, who was living in Houston. To Margie, it seemed a fair exchange to share her exotic experiences in the 'Land of the Rising Sun' in exchange for hearing of life in the 'real world'.

'Emails from the Edge' is sprinkled with running commentaries of the newsworthy happenings in the world. It runs the gamut of emotions from upbeat and humorous to homesick, and sometimes even desperate.

'Emails from the Edge' shows what true friendship can mean if you have the courage to reach out and embrace it; to forge the bonds of friendship and to hold that friendship close to your heart; to share experiences with another and each becoming a stronger person for having shared those experiences.

Cooking by the Book

'Cooking by the Book'

'Cooking by the Book' was put together as a labor of love by more than two dozen talented writers who just happen to be wonderful cooks as well. The main goal in this undertaking was to offer loyal readers and website visitors a gift to show our appreciation.

During the process of completing this project, all of the writers took great pains to fill this little e-book with favorite recipes, short biographies, and even some excerpts from the books that tie in with the appetizing foods you'll find listed.

As you read through the finished cookbook, we hope you discover many delicious recipes, learn a little about each author, and be tempted to sample a few of the dishes and at least a little of our writing.
