Kerry hails from a small central Washington town surrounded by orchards, vineyards, and lots of cows.
After graduating from Eastern Washington University, he moved back and forth between Spokane and Portland a few times before finally settling in Spokane. (Though, he sorely misses the Oregon coast.)
In his free time, Kerry enjoys reading a variety of things but his favorite genres are science fiction and fantasy. Some of his favorite authors include Michael Crichton, Robert Jordan, Douglas Adams, Mary Doria Russell, George R. R. Martin, Mercedes Lackey, Truman Capote, Bart D. Ehrman, Nathaniel Philbrick, and Nadia Bolz-Weber.
In another timeline, in a universe that slightly resembles our own, young Quincy Harris must navigate life without her parents. Flying to a new school on the backs of giant eagles, Quincy makes new friends, fends off enemies and tries to discover her own hidden Talents as well as the secrets of the mysterious key left to her by her mother. In her debut novel, R. M. Seidler has created a richly fascinating world that you will sorely wish you could visit. The Key to Time is a great book from a fresh new author with a promising future!
This is a great little book to help inspire you to change your life for the better. Alan Cohen gives some very blunt, down to earth advice on everyday issues that can drag people down and make them feel not at their best. I tend to pick this book up every couple of months just to remind myself of things that I can improve with just a little bit (or sometimes a lot) of effort. There is an old adage that you can’t keep doing the same thing and expect different results. This book helps point out ways that you can change what you do and how you think to improve how you feel.
Nadia Bolz-Weber is a Lutheran minister and the founder of the congregation House for All Sinners and Saints. This book is a follow-up to her previous one Pastrix (which I also recommend). Drawing from her own life-experience and reflecting on her parishioners and their deeply-held beliefs, the author explores a side of Christianity that is welcoming, inclusive, and genuinely heartfelt. Bolz-Weber exhibits a rare compassion and strength to which I, for one, can only aspire. This is a great read and you may want to have a box of tissues nearby for happy and sad tears.
