The Following is from the preface to the book.
August 2016. A Journey To Friend-ship: With Events and Thoughts Along The Way
July 2008. A Child of Air
The editorial reviewer wrote:
I admired many strengths in content, detail, imagery, tone, organization, and dialogue. Jean Aspen's novel, A Child of Air, addresses contemporary interests in personal and family values, ecology, and spirituality, in a compelling storytelling format and should find a broad appreciative audience.

pg. 108 ... You won't be ready for another life until you handle your own with integrity.
pg. 127 ... the intersection with I-10 reared suddenly above him, spidering into the sky on impossibly thin legs.
pg. 133 ... I sometimes think we do that to one another: cripple those we love so that they can't leave us.
pg. 157 ... He was willing to live with the uncertainty in order to dance with mystery.
pg. 158 ... He'd been given a second chance at life, and this time he planned to be present.
Another reader writes that he was surprised to read a lifelong belief of his when Ginger says:
pg. 105 ... We are God and God is us.
From Australia: ... I wanted to tell you I have read Jean's book and really liked it. I found it easy to read and really liked the storyline. As I got closer to the ending I was wondering if Christopher Bradford would find himself 'between two worlds' - as in the movie The Others. It was an enjoyable read indeed and I allowed myself space between reading time so it would last a little longer! I can see Jean has an open mind on many things.
From Tucson...John and I read Child of Air to each other while travelling in the car. We enjoyed, and I found myself caught up in the story. I cried like a baby towards the end.
Dec 2007 Introduction to Electrical Circuits and Signals
About the price: My better half says the book won't sell because the price is too low! Normally technical books of this size, with so many figures and equations, cost well over $100. The price is set where it is because I want to make it readily available to student budgets. That is why the price is what it is.
April 2006. Quilts Have a Story to Tell -
A Social Studies Anthology
The stories are all mostly human interest anecdotes that show the compassion, caring, and love a stitcher puts into the act of quilting. They also show the effect a quilt has upon the recipient of such a quilt. The author's effort to popularize the act of quilting and its role in society was always done with the same qualities that one brings to quilting. It is with a feeling of great privilege that we are able to help finish this work and bring a professionally crafted anthology of quilt stories to the public.
