Paula Anne Fairbanks understands all about the unexamined life. And she likes hers that way. Until her world gets ripped smooth apart.

Running from reality, Paula falls under the mythological spells being spun on Diana Maclean’s porch. Surely Paula’s own choices aren’t to blame for the summer of insanity she spends at Diana’s (known as the White Witch of Sociable, Texas). But do the stories that Diana tells relate at all to real life? If so, is existence then, truly a fairy tale?

I JUST CAME HERE TO DANCE, a modern allegory, waltzes atop the line between the creative and the crazy, between the sacred and the maligned. Through myths it weaves together the multi-layers of personal Self with that of the collective whole. And finally, Paula Anne and the townsfolk learn the simplest of truths-that the fire’s ashes produce wisdom and courage, just as the stories say.

Baskerville Publishers, Inc., Hardcover Fiction

In order to be a “good Christian,” Nettie Rhodes has accepted her husband’s authority in their marriage, and his idea of what her role should be. Although he enforces his beliefs through emotional and physical control, this is not the story of abuse. It is about the subjugation of women’s minds and hearts, the subtle incarceration of the soul. But more importantly, it tells the story of awakening, and of walking out of the fog into freedom.

On October 26, 1974, during a hard-fought Alabama/Texas Christian University football game, TCU star running back Ken Waldrep ran into a wall of Alabama tacklers and landed head-first on the artificial turf. His life as a star athlete was finished. But quadriplegia couldn’t slow him down. At 25, Kent formed what became the American Paralysis Foundation. As vice-chair of the National Council on Disability (appointed by Ronald Reagan), Kent helped draft the Americans with Disabilities Act. Recent advances in spinal cord injury keep proving out his belief in a cure, to which Kent Waldrep has dedicated his life.
