"The Narrow View"



THE NARROW VIEW is one of the most discussed adult and children’s books of our time. Featuring a village of people and a tree, the plot focuses on both characters. The village of people live in a very uncomfortable world they have grown accustomed to.

But they discover an amazing giant Red Wood tree that offers them a different and more perfect world, a protected world, a world they have always dreamed of, a comfortable world.

The people of the village suddenly find themselves happier than they have ever been, until one day… something familiar begins to stir inside their inner being. They aren't exactly sure what it is, but it is familiar.

And so they gather in the shade and comfort of the giant Red Wood tree looking up at all its beauty and strength and begin making excuses. And soon the excuses turn to frustration, and the frustration turns to anger, and the anger turns to action. What follows is a very surprising and almost unpredictable reaction based on the only thing they knew, the very thing they have grown accustomed to, their very narrow view.

The book is intentionally ambiguous but explodes with an incredible learning lesson of life unadorned. It is the realistic assessment of the human condition and a stark viewpoint of relationships that begin happily, but unpredictably end sadly because one partner cannot help but to destroy all that is good…a by-product or habit originating from their own dysfunctional history. The themes reside anywhere between those intended for adults and those for children.

"And So He Did"



If you are willing to take a look at the ways your relationship (any close relationship) is not functioning well, this book is for you. If you’re feeling ransacked in your relationship and bewildered as to what could be wrong, this book is for you.

When the other person makes you feel like you’re doing something wrong, chances are it’s not you. Generally in close relationships both people want to remember the past and anticipate the future. They want to create a better future by not repeating negative or destructive patterns from the past.

Sadly, it doesn’t always work out that way. Sometimes it takes multiple incidents before we wake up and smell the coffee…or you can read this book and learn that you can change those behaviors in the opposite direction and get back on track.

And So He Did is a fictional and functional short story based on real life experiences that will teach you to see with more than your eyes and hear with more than your ears.
