I knew from the moment I spotted her on the beach that my life would never be the same. I don’t know what it was exactly that drew my attention to her. Yet I knew instinctively that she was it—the catalyst. I was forever changed before the first ‘hello.’” 

A chance encounter on the beach launches Rita on a journey of introspection and self-exploration. Realizing that there is something missing in her life and in her marriage of convenience, Rita begins to ask honest questions about herself, her husband, and her life choices. Beth, a woman who is quite accustomed to looking past the surface, challenges Rita to look beyond the status quo to find out what it is that she truly wants from life. When she does, Rita is startled to find that very little of what she formerly called her “life” reflects her own desires. She discovers that she has been sleepwalking through her life for years. When Rita awakens suddenly in the midst of her illusory world, she finds that she is virtually a stranger there.  

Rita’s transformation leads her to places she never expected to go, towards a love and a life she never thought she’d find. Her journey has inspired readers to take their own journeys towards their true selves. You hold a book in your hand that will leave you changed in some way. Embrace transformation and allow the journey to take you where it will. Caterpillars don’t try to change into butterflies; it just happens on its own accord when the right time arrives. While our journeys may be different, we all follow the same types of paths to get to where we need to be—to find our way back to our core being and our life’s purpose. 

Driftwood is a book about transformation. It tells the story of Rita Capri, a woman who feels compelled to set sail into uncharted waters in the midst of her own stormy sea of a life. Leaving a dissatisfying marriage of convenience was only the beginning of her life's journey into more authentic and honest living. She woke up from her life of sleepwalking to find that she had the power to choose how she lived, who she loved, and what she could do to build her own life in a new way. This is a story about one woman, but it offers a glimpse into how each of us can and does make our own decisions about how we live, even if that choice involves acquiescence to societal and cultural expectations rather than choices based on our own dreams and desires.

     “...I do believe in you, Ricky… It’s something that comes so easily to me.” 
     “As though you’ve done it before?”
     “Exactly.  You know, part of me is interested in learning more about my past lives, while another part of me is afraid how that will affect the choices I make in this life.”
      “Like having to decide whether to love me?”      

Lingering memories of their past life together leads a young couple to hunt for clues to explain the deep connection between them.  When darkness cuts off their search and threatens to consume their souls, love and light find a way to unite them again.

Ricky Boston is a budding young artist on his way to art school and a future illustrating fantasy novels when his life and that of his fiancé is cut short in a senseless act of violence and depravity.  Blinded by the need to right the wrongs of the past, Ricky’s reincarnated soul battles recurring nightmares and feelings of  grief and despair, until peace arrives at last in a most ironic and unexpected way.

I sensed the thrill of a stolen moment as my fingers brushed back a lock of auburn hair that had fallen in front of her left eye. I cupped her face in my hand, gently tilting it up towards mine so that our eyes met. I saw in them a passion that seemed to echo the intensity I was experiencing and was thus emboldened to make the first move. When my lips landed softly on hers, I felt a surge of excitement and danger. 


Where do you draw the line between fantasy and reality? Are you responsible for the content of your dreams? What about when your dreams begin to spill over into your waking hours? For months, Jill, a twenty-something lesbian, had been daydreaming about her sexy, Latino co-worker, Marie. Interesting things start to happen when her night dreaming begins to involve nocturnal trysts with her fantasy paramour. When the women discover they are having the same dreams, they raise the stakes on their telepathically shared nightlife. Their dream world shatters when Marie’s nocturnal passion overflows into her daytime relationship with her violent, sexually addicted husband. 

In My Dreams illustrates the blurring of boundaries we experience when we enter the world of our dreams. It also reminds us that there are always consequences when we begin to act consciously on that inner world of the dreaming mind. Sometimes those consequences are harder than anyone could have anticipated.

"Your journals have answered a lot of my questions, but they've also generated more. I'm glad we have the rest of our lives to figure out the answers together."  

‎"Love is something you stumble over, or falls on top of you, or chases you into unfamiliar territory. It isn't something you phone out for and have delivered to your door. It's more like a phantom train. You don't see it coming, but you know when it runs you over and leaves you bleeding on the tracks." 

Falling in love is a risky business. When the love you find is the forbidden kind, it becomes even more risky. Who says what kind of love should be forbidden? Even though times are changing, it is still sometimes very risky for same-sex couples to express their love. It can be downright dangerous in some parts of the world and even in some regions of this country. 

The Diary of Allie Katz is a story of love forbidden by our society. An age gap that would be irrelevant a few years in the future is much more distinct when lovers are young. When one is a student and the other a teacher, the forbidden aspect is more prominent. Given that it is love between two young women, the scandal deepens and threatens to drown the young lovers in despair while they battle with the reality of norms, mores, and discriminatory laws. But love, as risky as plucking a rose in the midst of thorns, is worth the risk when it is true.

Demeter’s Daughter is the third book in a contemporary series by Beth Mitchum. Each book is dedicated to a different Goddess. Although the Goddesses represented here are all ancient Greek Goddesses, there is no connection between the books and the land of Greece, except in a metaphorical sense. The books are dedicated to the spiritual energy these Goddesses can bring to our lives by helping us to become all that we are meant to be.

Set in the late 1990’s on the cusp of the internet revolution, the series begins with Artemisian Artist, where we meet four women who become connected to each other in sometimes unexpected ways. In the first book, we see their lives through the eyes of Liz Higgins, an artist who is just beginning to find success in her work. In the second book, Gaia’s Guardian, we follow the thread from the perspective of Gerry Pearcy, a Lakeland police officer. In this third book, we follow the narrative from the perspective of Melissa Higgins, a student at the University of Central Florida and Liz’s younger sister. While attending college, Melissa deals with strong maternal urges and a sometimes confusing love life. Melissa’s life takes a puzzling metaphysical turn while she grapples with the sudden return of her mother, who vanished when Melissa was a toddler. The series reaches its exciting conclusion in Hestia’s Healer, which is told by Dr. Terri Jackson, a healer in more ways than one, and the fourth character in this extraordinary quartet of friends.

Each one of the books focuses on one of the women and is narrated by that character—Liz, Gerry, Melissa, and Terri. Together they weave a tapestry of women’s empowerment through self-growth and strong relationships.

“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.” --Friedrich Nietzsche


Seen Dancing is a collection of essays and stories as they occurred to a spiritual being having a human experience. When you walk a spiritual path, you may encounter people who do not understand you. That is their short-sightedness rather than your shortcoming. Their lack of spiritual experience in no way nullifies the bounty of yours. There are people engaged in spiritual discussions who have opinions and beliefs based in dogma, and then are there are people engaged in spiritual discussions who have experiences. Just because those experiences vary, it doesn't mean that they are contradictory. When beliefs are built upon dogma, conflict arises. When beliefs are built upon experiences, community arises. It is the author's hope that these stories and essays will build community.

A carefully selected array of blog and journal entries that depict different events in the author's life as they happened. They are true as far as memory can be trusted to relate events accurately and interpretations are allowed. Most of the entries were written soon after the occurrence, although a few are memories dredged up from the past. Some of the stories are humorous and some are self-indulgent, but all are told openly from the one writer's perspective of looking at life through smudged and sometimes misty windows of the soul. Many of the stories are about wildlife encounters. Some are pretty straightforward while others are told from a more mystical and archetypal perspective. All are based on real life encounters however.

Wor(l)ds of Love, Loss, and Longing is a collection of original poems by author, poet, and singer/songwriter, Beth Mitchum. This collection includes many love poems found in her first poetry collection, bethwor(l)ds: 20 years of poetry, as well as dozens of totally new poems that were either missed in the first collection or have been written since the publication of her first collection. All the poems here fall under the themes of love found, love lost, or inner longing. Beth Mitchum's poetry is very readable even to the person who never thought they understood or cared to read poetry. She hopes that you will discover a hidden love for poetry, a genre she considers to be micro short stories, both true and fictional. For her, the point of poetry is to tell a story, or paint a picture in your mind, in as few words as necessary to achieve that task. She sometimes uses Haiku to condense her own poems into even smaller packages. A story, if told well, doesn't have to be 1000 pages or even 1000 words long.
