Below are six of the many nonfiction books I've edited.
|Seven Articles on the Qiblah, written by a retired engineer who lives in the Islamic Republic of Iran, explains how to use positional astronomy to find the precise direction to the Kaaba in Mecca from any location on earth. Muslims pray facing the Kaaba five times a day. I’ve edited two books by this author. He's been to my web site. He knows I'm a witch. It doesn't matter.|
|The Master of Speech is one of three books I've edited in which the author traces the prehistoric arrival in Africa of the Nummo, who came from a planet in the Sirius system. The Nummo were worshipped by the Dogon tribe. This worship, the author believes, became the basis of all mythology and religion on earth. I’m not sure I believe her, but I certainly support her right to write her books.|
|Monster Mash: Half Dead in Hollywood is the memoir of Bobby Pickett, who wrote and performed that hilarious song. Bobby and I became great friends, and when I saw in Newsweek that he'd died, I kept wanting to send him an email ... Bobby, say it ain’t so!|
|Battling Ward was written by a man who lived in north St. Louis County, where I grew up. His father was an amateur boxer in the 1930s and ’40s. I recognized nearly every location in the book and eventually gave him the phone number of my 85-year-old uncle, who, I am convinced, knows everyone in St. Louis. Turns out, my author and my uncle had mutual friends. It’s a small world.|
|Living in the Rear View Mirror is the memoir of a successful businesswoman who spent 20 years of her life caught in addictions. She’s now in recovery and has written a cool new book of New Age philosophy, which I also edited. And then I edited the home page of her web site, and now I'm editing some of her blogs.|
|Healing Choices is a guide to complementary and alternative healthcare, from anthroposophical medicine to zero balancing. The author discusses 93 modalities and tells what each one treats, what its principles are, and what to expect from a session. This is a very useful encyclopedia.|
These are just six of the nonfiction books I’ve edited. Other interesting topics are philosophy and religion (mostly mainstream metaphysics and a lot of New Age books, but also Calvinist theology, paganism, and Tantra), science and technology, political tracts, business and PR issues, history, and lots more wonderful memoirs and biographies.
You know what I love about my job? I learn something new every day. My authors teach me as much about their topics as I teach them about writing.
