What started out as a couple of blog posts blossomed into a following of over 200,000 people-who have all read and been touched by Mowry's stories. The most extraordinary thing he found when writing about his experiences is that the most common comment about his work is "OMG that's me. You are telling my story. I don't feel so alone now." Living with mental illness is hard, but it's especially difficult when dealing with more than one condition at the same time. Many books about coping with mental illness focus on one disorder, such as anxiety, panic attacks, or depression. Because Dave Mowry didn't see any that dealt with his situation of living with multiple disorders simultaneously, he decided to write about it himself. OMG That's Me! is sometimes funny, often poignant, but always deeply honest, open, and personal. Mowry's stories let others know there is help and there is hope, and that they too can recover and live a full life. This book is a must read for family members and friends who will gain true insight into the experiences of loved ones living with a mental illness. This book is a must read for mental health professionals who will better understand the symptoms faced by their patients. And ordinary people will see the strength, resilience, and beauty of people that will shatter the stigma surrounding mental illness.

In Angels Walking, former baseball star Tyler Ames suffers a career-ending injury. As he tries to put his life back together the way it was before, he discovers the devastating news that his one true love, Sami Dawson, has moved on.

But she finds herself drawn to LA Dodger Marcus Dillinger when she volunteers with her roommate Sami at a local youth center, and she discovers an exciting life she never dreamed of. That is, until she receives devastating news from her doctor that alters her future and forces her to make a rash decision. Finally, in Brush of Wings, Mary Catherine moves to Uganda to work at an orphanage against the advice of her doctor. She may not have long to live, but she chooses to help others with the time she has left. The only problem is Marcus, the man she never meant to fall in love with. He knows something is wrong, and after months of silence from Mary Catherine, a divinely timed letter leads him on a desperate life-or-death mission. Then his friends receive shocking news that changes everyone’s plans. The angels in their midst are doing everything they can to make sure their mission succeeds.

Throughout Camelot, he is whispered to be a magician, a sorcerer, a wizard. But Merlin is merely a scholar, a practitioner of medicine, and King Arthur’s trusted advisor. Though he possesses no otherworldly abilities, his keen intellect grants him certain powers of deduction. Though he labored to help Arthur unite all of the Britons under his rule, Merlin’s work is not done. The vassal kings are a contentious, superstitious rabble, who have not easily accepted Arthur as their liege. And Arthur himself, to Merlin’s distress, is still prey to the old beliefs. He is convinced that he can bring peace and prosperity to Camelot with the Stone of Bran, an ancient skull-shaped artifact purported to be magical. But after it is stolen from the king’s own private chambers—along with the legendary sword Excalibur—and one of Arthur’s squires is brutally murdered during the theft, Merlin, along with his apprentice Colin (the maiden Nimue in disguise) must use the power of reason to conjure up a miracle and catch a murderer.

Drawing on a gold mine of primary documents--including letters, diary entries, personal narratives, political speeches, broadsides, trial transcripts, and contemporary newspaper articles--The Boisterous Sea of Liberty brings the past to life in a way few histories ever do. Here is a panoramic look at early American history as captured in the words of Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Beecher Stowe and many other historical figures, both famous and obscure. In these pieces, the living voices of the past speak to us from opposing viewpoints--from the vantage point of loyalists as well as patriots, slaves as well as masters. The documents collected here provide a fuller understanding of such historical issues as Columbus's dealings with Native Americans, the Stamp Act Crisis, the Declaration of Independence, the Whiskey Rebellion, the Missouri Crisis, the Mexican War, and Harpers Ferry, to name but a few. Compiled by Pulitzer Prize winning historian David Brion Davis and Steven Mintz, and accompanied by extensive illustrations of original documents, The Boisterous Sea of Liberty brings the reader back in time, to meet the men and women who lived through the momentous events that shaped our nation.
