Joelle Fraser

Following divorce, Fraser resolves to stay in the small mountain town where her son’s father lives, but it soon proves too claustrophobic. She finds relief a world away in a small house up a winding road tucked so far into the forest one forgets it is technically still in town. It’s in this small and remote forest house, both buffered and enveloped by endless wilderness, where she slowly rebuilds. The life she carves out for herself and son Dylan is harsh at times and lyrical at others. The physical landscape feeds her—with its trees and animals, firewood, barbed wire and rugged unforgiving demands—while her internal self brims over with favorite passages culled from beloved books…and also with immense guilt about pulling her son into the confusing and messy reality of divorce. Of course, it is complicated reflection, as our lives often are. No moment of reveling goes unpunished by self-reproach: how dare she be happy for the quiet afforded her when Dylan is with his dad. Is it okay to be happy? Shouldn’t she be sadder? And her past is not past at all. Her history and the history of her family are very much alive in her, and memories crop-up unbidden, providing hints of explanation, that both prop her up and damn her. It is when all these gremlins hound her that she turns to what is outside her door. This is a literary gem for anyone who has navigated the treacherous waters of loss and rebuilt a life, for those who love an expanse of sky, and for those who carry books in their mind.

Nancy Puglisi

Honest musings draw readers into the vortex of reflection and renewal A gentle heart and questioning mind ponder the verisimilitudes of life The joys and peace derived from observing nature, the shared intimacy and bonds of lovers, friends and family, the rich experience and adventure of travel, ruminations on an eclectic medley of issues and topics comprise this latest reflective anthology of poet Nancy J. Puglisi. Her poems capture moments that give birth to beautiful memories evoking the reader's own emotions and reflections. Poems such as Flashing Light, Watching, and Forest Music reference experiences shared by many who direct their attention to the natural world. The depths of love and passion are expressed in poems such as Delightful, Surprise, Seeing, and Together. Mother's Day, Brothers, Nantucket Friends, and Remembering the 50s focus on the ties of family and the precious connections with friends. Despite the gentle tenor of many of her poems, Puglisi confronts the reader with her thoughts and feelings on several controversial topics prompting the reader to examine his or her own position. Don't Ask Don't Tell, In Defense of What, and Our Non-Civil Union address controversies surrounding and within the arena of gay rights while poems such as Depleting Resource, questioning energy production and consumption, or Emotional Roller Coaster which contrasts the fleeting joy of the holiday season with the reality of human suffering, highlight the complex issues and often harsh realities of life. Puglisi has honed her thoughtful approach to observing life through her examination of a variety of philosophies, most notably Buddhism, which is reflected in selections such as Breathing, Breath, and Contemplation. She is inspired to consider the value and beauty of everyday realities common to many. Her relaxed style and down-to-earth approach to poetry provides a very readable quality to her work that can be appreciated by even the most confirmed poetry-phobe. Use the images and emotions Puglisi shares in this newest collection to inspire your own journey of reflection and renewal.

Excerpt: ... sheds. To the right of the house was the fountain 'with its weather-stained watering trough; and, behind it, the large projecting oven and bakehouse. Nothing can be conceived more quiet or peaceful than this woodland abode, thus lost, as it were, amidst the solitude of the mountains; its very look had a sort of charm about it that cannot be described; you felt as if you could spend all your life there.. Two old sporting dogs--the one a terrier of a foxy color, bandy-legged and fat, with snub nose and large hanging ears; the other a sort of staghound, tall, wiry, and thin--bounded forward to meet us. A young girl who was hanging out clothes to dry in the gallery, seeing the dogs scampering off, looked up. The old forester smiled at her, and quickened his pace. 'This is your house, then?' said I. 'Yes, this is my home.' 'Can you allow me to break a crust of bread and drink a glass of wine under your roof?' 'Why of course I can! If woodrangers sent away travellers from their door here in the forest, what inn could they go to? You are heartily welcome, sir.' We had now reached the wicker gate of. the little garden. The dogs were capering and jumping about us, and the young girl waved a welcome to us with her hand from the gallery. Having crossed the garden, a second gate admitted us into the farm-yard, and the forester, turning towards me, said, in a hearty, cheerful tone, --'You are now at the house of Frantz Honeck, woodranger to the Grand Duke Ludwig. Walk into the sitting-room; I have but to lay aside my bag and take off my gaiters, and I am at your service.' As he spoke we were passing along a little hall, and the good man pushed open the door of a low, square, whitewashed apartment. Ranged around the walls were a number of beech chairs, the flat backs or...

While writing these children’s books I mixed fact with fiction, reality with fantasy, and the will to overcome near-impossible problems with creative solutions. Since children need positive encouragement, optimism, hope, and, most of all - love, I’ve created stories using animals - who are true to their particular nature. I chose animals which children can both relate to and understand by their own unique behaviors, but sometimes with a little humor and a few unexpected happenings. Positive reading for positive readers! This second volume of Wonderful Stories from Skog Forest is about a troublesome squirrel named Mr. KNutsen, and his band of destructive and thieving squirrel friends - and their adversary, Mr. Teddy, the homeowner, who is trying to put an end to their antics. It's a very comical tale that most people can relate to especially if they have had problems with these cunning and daring rodents. This is when Mr. Teddy's great-grandson, Brandon, who can talk to animals, makes his first real appearance. He tries to keep the peace, but then realizes that animals do what animals do and his efforts fall on somewhat deaf ears. Although the squirrels are irritating, the tale is funny and the conversations between Brandon and the squirrels and the other animals are in depth and interesting.

I chose animals which children can both relate to and understand by their own unique behaviors, but sometimes with a little humor and a few unexpected happenings. Positive reading for positive readers! In this third volume of Wonderful Stories from Skog Forest, many silly and unwarranted fears that children and adults have are discussed and thwarted. Such strange fears are everything from green slime on rocks in rivers, ponds and lakes to cemetaries - small bugs to darkness - and, of course, rain and thunder. The book teaches children that if they would only learn about these senseless fears, the fears would go away, and also that when they come across something that is truely dangerous, they wouldn't fear it, but respect it instead. "Man hurts what he fears, fears what he hates, and hates what he does not understand! - And this is the root problem of the world!"
