||The Lipizzan Reunion
"Anyone with animal friends knows that animals are all about body language and creaturely communion. We really become a part of their family as they become a part of ours. This poignant tribute to two horses is for those who have ever lost a beloved animal friend. It is a story of love, grief, and acceptance, with photographs that speak silently of the heart connection between the writer and two horses she shared so much with."

||THE INDEPTH ME
The Indepth Me shows how complex these sisters' relationship was. Jan thought so highly of Jude, who obviously loved her sister; that she would have trusted Jude to do the right thing with her journals. It is sometimes uncomfortable to be confronted with a person's most secret thoughts. But it made me feel like I knew more about the human condition because Jude was brave enough to reveal so much of her sister and herself. Many writers suffer the wrath of friends and family when they do this, but if they never did, we would be deprived of so much truth and understanding about ourselves and others."

"On One level, The Indepth Me is decades long records of correspondence between two sisters who loved each other with all the caring, commitment and misunderstanding that siblings share. The younger sister, Jan, dies in a scuba diving accident in 1990. The letters continue as Jude attempts to pierce the veil of memory, in order to come to grips with who her sister was and who Jan is in Jude's psyche. On a second level it represents the struggle for and of identity: Who am I? Is there a higher power here in my life? What do I want? What is possible?
This document, in its own modest way, stands for an age."
