The Undulating Mountain
When their parents fail to return home to their Manhattan apartment one evening, twelve year old Sophie Penn and her brothers William and Tom are left to navigate on their own in a city where technology has become unreliable, discombobulated bands of people roam the streets, fires erupt spontaneously on the rivers, and no one seems to be in charge. On a journey that takes them from the changed streets of their home city to the no less changed and mysterious Undulating Mountain where their grandmother Lupine lives, the children seek to right their out-of-balance world. It is a journey fraught with danger, and full of wonder and new friends.

Amazon In Arabic, Backward From Illness, A Memoir
This deeply affecting memoir recounts the author’s breast cancer diagnosis and treatment as it interrupts and intersects her work as resident artist for a World War I archaeology project in the Middle East, and sends her back to the past to muse upon and evaluate the building blocks of her unusual life: the influences of others, early circumstances, and her own thoughts and actions. In the apparent disconnect between her Appalachian childhood and her work in the southern deserts of Jordan she discovers among other things the roots of her commitment to human rights and her empathy with people of other cultures, as well as the lessons for rebuilding her life after illness.

A Conspiracy of Goodness
Thirty-year-old Henry Oliver has achieved international success as a dancer and choreographer not through blind ambition but through an almost equally disturbing focus that, combined with his gifts, allows him to ignore both his own and others’ emotional needs. But just as he is arriving at the pinnacle of his career, a close friend dies and his cold focus deserts him, leaving him vulnerable to emotional demands that sap his self-confidence. He turns tail on all he has fought for and runs home to his mother Bella, who still lives in the small mountain town where Henry grew up. She was his first teacher and inspiration, but her seeming-foolishness has always embarrassed Henry and driven him away. Bella, on the other hand, has secrets that she has always kept hidden from her son. Now she is dying. Will they be able to reconcile before it is too late, so that Bella can die at peace and Henry can bring his true gifts to fruition?
