“Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.”

Mason Cooley, Author



Here you’ll find stories to entertain you, to inspire you, to keep you company when you need to be distracted from life’s difficulties.

Stories that explore life’s enigmas as they take you on journeys to unusual settings: Alaska, Doubtful Sound, New Zealand, the Great Barrier Reef.

Along the way, you’ll meet strong characters facing interesting challenges with a grace earned through determination and persistence. Perhaps their struggles will illuminate the mysteries of your own heart.
