About the author

Bob Rich, Ph.D. earned his doctorate in psychology in 1972. He worked as an academic, researcher and applied scientist until “retiring” the first time at 36 years of age. Later, he returned to psychology and qualified as a Counseling Psychologist, running a private practice for over 20 years. During this time, he was on the national executive of the College of Counselling Psychologists of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), then spent three years as a Director of the APS. He was the therapist referrers sent their most difficult cases to.

Bob retired in 2013, but still does pro bono counseling over the internet. This has given him hundreds of “children” and “grand­children” he has never met, because many of these people stay in touch for years. His major joy in life is to be of benefit to others, which is why he wrote a book that’s in effect a course of therapy.

You can get to know him well at his blog, Bobbing Around, https://bobrich18.wordpress.com

 From the “Two Bipolar Chicks”, Wendy K. Williamson and Honora Rose, comes this survival guide disguised as a low-key, how to manual. From their wellness vaults, they compiled three decades worth of tips for you. Filled with insightful anecdotes and personal viewpoints – which can differ – Wendy and Honora steer you through the swamps of bipolar disorder and teach you how to dodge the alligators.

From advice on medication, to their own, personal journeys with acceptance, you’ll pick up tips on managing depression and mania. There is plenty of factual advice and information on treatments and tidbits for the novice, the pros and everyone in between. It could be an asset to anyone navigating the bipolar waters.

Two Bipolar Chicks Guide to Survival: Tips for Living with Bipolar Disorder is the consummate bipolar mix of everything you’ll want - and need - inside.

The most delicious part is it isn’t bogged down with scientific jargon, though they do explain what you need to know. You’ll hear more from the author you’ve grown to love and the co-author you soon will. It’s their personal insight that will make this a unique book. Divulging tidbits from manic sex and internet sites to how to not blow your life savings when in a manic episode, they blow the lid off telling it like it is.  

You wanted to know more and here it is! Wendy has also brought in her editor and partner Honora to double the fun. Wendy K. Williamson is the author of the best-selling, inspirational memoir I’m Not Crazy Just Bipolar. This is the book you wanted her to write next: more tips, more about wellness, more information. Voila! The Two Bipolar Chicks Guide To Wellness: Tips for Living with Bipolar Disorder was born.

You’ll receive an education about treatments, including their own experience with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT). You’ll learn the importance of medication management and that not all generics or doctors were created equal. They’ll tell you how crucial little details can be from pill trays to choosing your pharmacy to locking up the credit cards when manic. Wendy and Honora will tell you what has worked - and not worked - for them. This book is designed to fill in the gaps of the scientific ones and keep you entertained so you won’t fall asleep.

“The journey through water and fly fishing is one of forgiveness for three generations of men; a father, a son and finally a grandson” (Susannah Marren, author of Between the Tides).
 
In Looking Through Water, William McKay finds himself reliving his past to help his troubled grandson, Kyle, deal with the present.
 
William’s story starts on an Adirondacks lake and wends its way through Manhattan to the Florida Keys. Colorful characters from the old man’s past come to life to help him tell an unforgettable story full of surprises and suspense. Fueled by nature’s fury, men are yanked out of their comfort zones and thrown together to confront life and death. Just as William appears to be on the brink of permanent unmooring, a stranger unexpectedly arrives to provide the tethering he has always sought.
 
Looking Through Water twists and turns as old wounds are revealed, wrongs are redressed, lives are threatened, understanding surfaces, and love arrives. With his grandfather’s past laid bare, Kyle must ultimately face how he might shape his future.
 
This story explores the emotions that make up the intricate tapestry of family structure by pulling at the threads of truth, lies, and misunderstandings.
 
“The prose will pull at your heart strings . . . Using water analogies and fishing tales, Rich weaves a multi-generational story.” —Fly Life
 
“The fishing sequences . . . those are glorious . . . Like Hemingway’s stories, to which Rich owes much of the inspiration for his prose, those sections are full of masculine energy and verve.” —New York Journal of Books
 
“Delves deep into father-son relationships.” —Parade
“My book … details the living hell that was my experience with concussions. The majority of this story was kept from even my closest relationships. It wasn’t easy, but it’s time to tell it.” – Dale Jr.

It was a seemingly minor crash at Michigan International Speedway in June 2016 that ended the day early for Dale Earnhardt Jr. What he didn’t know was that it would also end his driving for the year. He’d dealt with concussions before, but concussions are like snowflakes—no two are the same. And recovery can be brutal—and lengthy.

As a third-generation driver in a family forever connected to the sport of stock-car racing, how could Dale Earnhardt Jr. sit on the sidelines and watch everyone else take their laps? It was one of the toughest seasons of his life—one that changed him forever.

In this gripping narrative from one of professional sports’ most beloved figures, Dale Jr. shares stories from his journey: how his career and his injury have transformed him, how he made the decision to retire at the end of the 2017 season after eighteen years behind the wheel, and what lies ahead for him in the next chapter of his life. There’s no second-guessing and no regrets from Driver #88. He simply wants to go out on his own terms and make the rest of his life off the racetrack count. Junior says, “I don’t want these last races to be just about me but rather the people who made my success possible: my fans, the folks who pack the grandstands rain or shine, my teammates and crew members through the years, industry colleagues, track volunteers, friends, family, sponsors. They’ve all played a role. I couldn’t have done it without them.”

When first published, this book won the prestigious Dream Realm Award for Action/Adventure. It has been thoroughly revised, so now it is even more gripping.ÿ

As a 16 year old Warrior, Ribtol didn?t know that he would become one of the great heroes of his people, the Doshi, and one of only five Doshi to be remembered with liking by the distant descendants of his worst enemies.ÿ

Those enemies, the Ehvelen, were the original Little People. Myths about them abound from China to Norway. They were real people, not mythical creatures, and for centuries they were the Mother?s warriors, defending the wild places, and opposing slavery and cruelty.ÿ

Ribtol?s story is an extract from the second of the five Stories of the Ehvelen, which describe how they were transformed into this role. You can see them through his eyes through three years of terrible fighting.ÿ

You will get to like this decent, intelligent young man as he grows into a hero.ÿÿThe Making of a Forest Fighter can be enjoyed as a stand-alone book, although it is part of a series.ÿ

Advance reviewers of the revised version have been enthusiastic:ÿ

Max Overton, author of many gripping historical novels: ?...one feels sympathy for the Ehvelen desperately defending their territory and way of life, and also for young Ribtol, wrestling with his insights and feelings as he accompanies his warlike brethren into battle... One may not like the Doshi as a people, but by the end of The Making of a Forest Fighter one has enjoyed the company of a young warrior as he learns to transcend the savagery of his people and become fully human.?ÿ

Margaret Tanner, Australian writer of historical romances: ?From the first couple of paragraphs, this amazing story captured my interest and my imagination, and kept me enthralled to the very last page. It is not an era that I am familiar with, but the author has remarkable knowledge and it shows.?ÿ

Florence Weinberg, versatile writer with several historical novels: ?Admirable from the first sentence of this unusual book with its stark realism combined with faerie, Ribtol shows compassion, flexibility, and the ability to learn from cultures other than his own, which is rigidly hierarchical... The author displays rich imagination in his account of three very different cultures: the peace- and beauty-loving Ehvelen (who, when attacked, slaughter the aggressor with efficiency and finesse), the Areg, a nation of traders, who bargain with the Doshi for timber captured from Ehvelen forests, and, of course, the Doshi themselves.?ÿ
