Lost in the Reflecting Pool: a memoir

Lost in the Reflecting Pool: a memoir - ASIN B07414L8B6

Award-Winning Memoir 
2017 Readers’ Favorite

When Diane, a psychologist, falls in love with Charles, a charming and brilliant psychiatrist, there is laughter and flowers—and also darkness. After moving through infertility treatments and the trials of the adoption process as a united front, the couple is ultimately successful in creating a family. As time goes on, however, Charles becomes increasingly critical and controlling, and Diane begins to feel barraged and battered. When she is diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer, Charles is initially there for her, but his attentiveness quickly vanishes and is replaced by withdrawal, anger, and unfathomable sadism. What Diane previously thought were just Charles’ controlling ways are replaced by clear pathologic narcissism and emotional abuse that turns venomous at the very hour of her greatest need. 

A memoir and a psychological love story that is at times tender and at times horrifying, Lost in the Reflecting Pool is a chronicle of one woman’s struggle to survive within—and ultimately break free of—a relationship with a man incapable of caring about anyone beyond himself.

A Life Singular (Volume One, Part One) - ASIN B083TLD2Y6

Everyone has a life singular. One…Unique…Extraordinary.

One true Love for Life…One act of fate changes a Life forever…

Jeff Diamond built a life of influence and wealth by making choices for all the right reasons. He lived by the law of reciprocity; a lesson learned on the streets as a teenager with nothing but an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. Plagued by the scars of a violent childhood, he created his vision and fought for it. 

And once he no longer needed to fight for himself, he fought for others. Yet when Jeff’s dream girl, Lynn, is taken from him by an act of a jealous misfit from his home town; the millionaire realises how he had succeeded in many ways and many like him were destined to fail?  The secret, he discovers, lay in the pursuit of love and wisdom; life’s two magic ingredients. 

Lynn was gone; his remaining days now only to account for their life together to inspire young people to make his type of choices, and not that of the desperate misfit named García.

Part One of Volume One – an amazing journey of discovery for life’s experiences through this fourteen-part series of love, passion and hope…

Season Of Sorrows: Post Traumatic Stress Disorder And The Combat Soldier

cover

Ever wonder what you loved one really thinks and feels about his combat related experiences ?
Especially those events in a war zone that he will not open up and talk about … to you or anybody else?
From the Preface of Season of Sorrows: Post Traumatic Disorder In The Combat Veteran reads in part
“Season of Sorrows makes me smile, laugh, hurt and cry. You are painting a picture of war that few people have or will ever experience. It is important that you do this. I hope that these writings find their way to a larger audience than those of us privileged few who are experiencing them. War, to this generation, is a fictional activity, confined to movies and video games.
Many of my students, when I was teaching high school, were intrigued by Vietnam and could only see what they thought was the glory and “coolness” of combat. The most asked question was “Did you ever kill anyone?” What bothered me was the way the question was asked, like wow, you were really cool if you had actually killed another human being. I thank God I was never put in the position where I had to. Their impressions were reinforced by the media coverage of Desert Storm, in which war was portrayed as a sterile video game like experience.
I hope however, that you can find some way to publish Season of Sorrows in print also. This generation, and future generations need to hear not only your experiences but they need to hear your feelings and get even just a small glimpse of your hurt, fear and emotion. I know they will probably not be able to fully understand all they will read or hear, but even if they get just one small percentage point of understanding, they and society as a whole, will be the better for it.”
If your loved one’s mental pain is more than you can stand or is now past your family’s understanding and patience, Season of Sorrows lets you in his/her world.
