Lookin’Up in Down Times (Stars Shine Bright on a Moonless Night) by Mountainbird, my first book, recounts inspiring, true adventures that span a period of 30 years. It gives hope in the face of immense challenges. A self-help or motivational book, rather than telling anyone what to do, shows through stories how real people accomplished the seemingly impossible through sheer will, prayer, unity, a change in perspective, or simply sitting still. You won’t find any car crashes or murders here but the thrill of the everyday or mundane. Since each chapter is a separate story, the book can be read whenever you find a few moments. With over thirty photos and easy to read print, it reads like an adult picture book. Find it in paperback or ebook format online at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Books a Million in the USA and internationally. Autographed copies can be ordered directly from the Author, Mountainbird.
