This is a long short story describing one man's struggle to move on after the premature death of his wife, and her unique efforts to help him do so. Reviewers have said:
"A very poignant, but also uplifting story of Reena, who suddenly finds out she has inoperable cancer and has only weeks to live. Derrick is struggling to come to terms with the death of his beloved wife. Following the funeral, Tim, an old friend of Reena's contacts Derrick to say that he has Reena's will. Derrick is mystified,he had no idea she written a will. The following day he goes to collect the will and Tim also hands him a package wrapped in plain brown paper. Derrick has no idea what is inside. He doesn't want to open it in front of Tim, so takes it home. He unwraps the package to find a pair of sunglasses, a camera,a journal and a yellow three-ring binder. It is Reena's special way to help her husband come to terms with his loss, but what do all these items mean? You need to read this story to find out!"
"This book deserves a five star rating because it says it all. It starts off with the sadness of loosing a spouse then backtracked through the good memories of the couple's life and ends in acceptance. This book is great for anyone who has lost his/her spouse because it brings back the good memories and they don't hurt so much."

About the Author
I tend toward genre fiction in both my short stories and my novel work. Primarily sci-fi and fantasy, although some other interesting themes occasionally surface. My poetry is almost exclusively what I like to call “speed poems” meaning I’m not agonizing over a space or a comma. I’m dashing out a first draft as fast as possible with a goal of crystallizing a particular moment in time or a feeling. Then, if I look back at it at all, it will be to decide if it makes the cut or not. I’m not going to edit, I’m not going to polish. Maybe I’m wrong, but I feel like that sucks the life out of a poem. If it does make the cut, I save it and will eventually publish it. I’ve also written quite a few essays under the general topic of Timeless Principles. Basically, these are musings on living a better, more fulfilling and more successful life through basic, time-honored, common sense principles for living. Although I’m a very religious person, I’ve tried hard NOT to make these essays religious in nature because I don’t feel this is the proper format for religious writing. But, you’ll probably recognize many of these principles as appearing in your holy book of choice. That’s not because they’re religious, per se, but because they work. So, relax for a bit and read to your heart’s content. If you’re pleased, leave a friendly comment and I’ll get back to you to thank you for doing so.
