Lessons from Zachary by Sandy Scott
memoir, 2016, paperback
Sandy Scott had it all: A beautiful country home, a successful husband, and the freedom to be a stay-at-home mom.
Then the news crashed down on her like a Tsunami: her infant son Zachary not only had severe brain damage but probably wouldn’t live past his first birthday. As denial gave way to despair and grief, Sandy looked out over the new, strange world her family suddenly found themselves thrown into, and wondered if they would ever know happiness again.
But it was in the very challenges that Zachary’s condition presented to her that she discovered a whole new level of compassion among others as well as her own inner resources. She eventually took on greater roles in the disability community and found her calling as a life coach.

Arcane Society/Dreamlight trilogy, 2009, hardcover
More than three centuries ago, Nicholas Winters irrevocably altered his genetic makeup in an obsession fueled competition with alchemist and Arcane Society founder Sylvester Jones. Driven to control their psychic abilities, each man’s decision has reverberated throughout the family line, rewarding some with powers beyond their wildest dreams, and cursing others to a life filled with madness and hallucinations.
Jack Winters, descendant of Nicholas, has been experiencing nightmares and blackouts—just the beginning, he believes—of the manifestation of the Winters family curse. The legend says that he must find the Burning Lamp or risk turning into a monster. But he can’t do it alone; he needs the help of a woman with the gift to read the lamp’s dreamlight.
Jack is convinced that private investigator Chloe Harper is that woman. Her talents for finding objects and accessing dream energy are what will save him, but their sudden and powerful sexual pull threatens to overwhelm them both. Danger surrounds them, and it doesn’t take long for Chloe to pick up the trail of the missing lamp. And as they draw closer to the lamp, the raw power that dwells within it threatens to sweep them into a hurricane of psychic force.
