This book list has just the type of books I enjoy reading. As for writing, here's a list of paperback books that I wrote. I enjoy reading books that are different enough from what I write (such as novels, plays, poems, and stories) or some of my nonfiction books, that I can learn more about science such as computational neuroscience, prehistory, and ice-age migrations or art and world music. There is so much to learn, and now that I'm very old, all the time in the world to learn, to read, to self-teach, including languages. So much fun.


I'm so glad I'm retired from the world of trying to seek paid employment and so free to read as many books as I can comfortably read when I'm not doing my chores.  Wonderful. As an elderly nondriver, (bus-riding low-income senior citizen wearing Reeboks classic black lace walking shoes) it's so much fun now to read books rather than to have to sit down and write them, having written at least 91 books of which 87 paperback books are at this date still in print. What's it like to be an unknown writer whose books are all print-on-demand? Its all about being low-mobility, elderly, and reading my own books which make me smile that I was more than a blue-collar housewife for the past decades since 1963 .


Here's the book cover photo of one of my adventure-suspense-with humor paperback novels. It's at this date listed at Amazon.com and with the publisher. The contemporary set in California novel is: How to Start Engaging Conversations on Women's, Men's, or Family Studies with Wealthy Strangers: A Thriller.


What my novel is about: Sicilian-American Women's, Men's, and Family Studies Professor, psychoanalyst, and night radio talk show personality, Anna's dad always told her that the lower our self esteem, the more we want to be someone different from ourselves, and the more we want someone different from ourselves. He made a point that the higher our self esteem, the more we want someone like ourselves.


Anna added something more to that: her belief that couples with self-respect will respect each other. Not one of Anna's clients came from families where the husband and wife or child and parent respected one another. That could be one huge reason why family wars grew into world wars.Now family wars had become full-blown race wars in the streets of Los Angeles. Skip an octave, and old hatreds of differences fanned flames between the 'haves' and 'have-nots.'She offered to trade the wisdom of age for the energy of youth. But it all boiled down to honor between family members.


Anna explained the difference between self-esteem and self-respect.Being an older woman reminded Wrenboy (the troubled court-appointed street teen that she had adopted) of a mother hen capable of caging his freedom. Her lined face reminded him of his own mortality at a time when he felt invincible and desperately lonely for a loving family.Would he fear her strident voice hammering him back into childhood? Or would he accept her globetrotting to repair the world with kindness? In his search for power and autonomy, he concluded it is easier to rebel.
