After Maggie Mackellar's acclaimed When It Rains, her second memoir traces with her characteristic candor and perception her move to Tasmania, for love, and the struggles and joys of settling there. In 2011, Maggie Mackellar moved from her family’s farm in Central West New South Wales to the east coast of Tasmania with her children and assorted menagerie to live with a farmer. Her story takes as its epigraph a quote from Roger McDonald: "Through every small opening in life, through the tiniest most restricted nerve ends, through rips and tears and tatters, life pours." In the book, she explores learning to love again after living through grief, and the complexities of doing this in a community with which she is unfamiliar, with two young children. She reflects on love after grief, juggling being a mother and negotiating a burgeoning relationship, the rhythms of country life, displacement, and the writing life. This is a book for anyone who has imagined taking a risk, for anyone who has moved to a new place and struggled with feelings of homesickness and displacement. It is a story about making a life in a remarkable setting—the east coast of Tasmania, on a sheep farm in a stone house built by convicts in 1828.

Everyone wants to be happy. But somehow our happiness is transient, depending on what’s happening in our lives. There is a deeper happiness that can only be found in the present moment. Deep Happy is based on quantum physics and the belief that we are intimately and infinitely connected to the larger universe. Spiritual and transformational healer Peter Fairfield offers tools and practices to achieve everyday happiness. He distills more than 40 years of healing, research, and personal experience into this profound and practical volume. The stories and exercises in Deep Happy show readers how to understand and communicate with a deeper intrinsic reality to achieve lasting happiness:The more singular our request, the easier it is for the universe to respond.Positive and negative expectations can cancel each other out.The universe hears the heart most easily.Remember that the universe is us.The separation we feel is an illusion we have created in our own head. This is a fascinating and provocative look at the deepest workings of the biological, quantum, and sacred reality of who we are. Fairfield shows how anyone can drop beneath the normal noise of everyday life to experience deep and profound happiness.

Marina del Rey attorney Tom McGuire must defend his client against a charge of carjacking and murder, rescue a proctologist-turned-plastic-surgeon, and battle with a government administrator of the Federal Witness Protection Program. Tom also runs into a modern-day Indian tribe that inhabits a high-rise office building, and some militant environmentalists who have unique methods of combating a Malibu real estate development. The action is set in and around Marina del Rey, California, with excursions to Topanga Canyon and Catalina Island's tiny settlement, Isthmus Cove. Also included are confrontations at sea between Tom's aging Chris-Craft and a Mafia offshore racer. Throughout, attorney McGuire's description of the action that takes place in this novel is a sense of humor that could only come from a person who has performed standup comedy, as author Jonathan Schwartz has.
