"We grow up believing in magic," they say. "Fairy-tales from our childhood are betraying us as adults. The myth is not a sound foundation for our relationships. That is why we have written our book. It has been our life's work. In our book, people will find what they have been looking for, both substance and direction. We present our book as a guide and our gift to other couples."
Their first co-authored book, The New Marriage: Transcending the Happily-Ever-After Myth (published by Cypress House) is a guidebook to help adults achieve transformation in their relationships. "We have both traveled this journey," say the authors. "And, we are still learning how to be good partners for each other.
Couples in today's traditional and non-traditional relationships are trying to succeed at a game where the rules have changed. And, without a map to provide direction, they remain clueless.
These tools provide realistic guides for today's relationships." The authors believe that it is important to have “lived the questions” about how to make a relationship work and share many of their personal experiences in their book.
