Red Cabbage Blue

Dr. Mike Lewis is a therapist at the heart of Annie Try's book, Red Cabbage Blue. This is the third book featuring Dr. Lewis and readers just starting the series may want to go back and read the first two to fully understand some of the personal aspects of Lewis' life.

In this title, Dr. Lewis is working with a client who has taken an innocent bet just a bit far. Friends were joking about eating only blue food and his client somehow latched onto that and has begun creating for herself an almost completely blue world. Dr. Lewis helps her navigate the murky waters of the underlying issues that have kept her enslaved to this obsession.

Write Better by Andrew T. Le Peau

Le Peau offers writers a distillation of wisdom gleaned from decades of editorial experience. After reading his book, I felt as though I'd attended a writer's conference--all within the comfort of my home, at a pace I controlled. The breadth of topics and the infusion of examples offers something for every writing level. It is definitely a book that one must read slowly--and repeatedly--to reap the full benefit.
