A  newly divorced empty nester stands poised to start her next chapter. And then she gets a Stage 4 cancer diagnosis and six months to live.

Now available on Amazon, Apple Books and Kobo.

A raw and hilarious memoir of a woman leaving the life and the city that almost killed her for the mountains she loves, finding healing, adventure and finally, the power she didn’t know she had.

Kate Rice’s old life looked pretty good. Triplex apartment with yard in New York City’s Upper West Side. Lake house. Two beautiful kids. A successful husband who kept most of his hair. The proverbial dog. Globetrotting jobs.

But behind her cheery facade, she hides a secret. A secret that almost kills her. 


When her world blows up in a firestorm, she abandons her seat in the audience and steps into the spotlight singing rock ’n roll in a legendary club in Greenwich Village. And when she gets that deadly diagnosis, she leaves New York in the dust, finding her cure in science, in love of friends and family, the grandeur of the mountains,  and ultimately, within herself.

Available in libraries and wherever books are sold by Nov 30!

Refugee resettlement, so polarizing in the headlines, is actually unifying on the ground.

These are stories of how the American people are proving the pundits wrong, where conservative Christians and the totally secular work together to resettle refugees from all nations and of all faiths.

A stalwart progressive community in what looks like deep red America stands strong against insular insiders hiding their fear behind hate.


For centuries, wave after wave of newcomers have loved and fought each other in this land of brutal beauty,

And this arid stretch of high desert is, in its own way, a microcosm of America, a land of contradiction and hope.
