While schizophrenic schnauzers and confused canaries are benefiting from her professional ministrations, her best friend Daisy is convinced that Miranda needs a little therapy, as well.

The Legend of the Rose is a story of love and life, a love that never dies, and a story of a power that when used for the wrong reason can make one cold and evil. It begins in the kingdoms of Glenview and Penrose, where there is a beautiful princess and a handsome prince who grow up together and fall in love. In another kingdom not so far away, a poor young servant is approached by a stranger who offers him anything his heart desires. What he desires most is power, and he will sell his soul to get it in order to become a great and powerful king. I invite you to read and see why. What I have to present to you is a fairy tale that I wrote for our second daughter, Cassandra, when she went to pick a rose from our garden and was pricked by a thorn. Not liking the fact the rose pricked her little finger, she asked why it had thorns, and thus, a story was created/born. Other than a self-publishing book, I have never been truly published.

Why do CEOs take home hundreds of millions and stockholders get peanuts? When did “business ethics” become an oxymoron? It didn’t used to be this way. Our founders kept tight control over corporations. Then one highly dubious court decision, followed by another outright fraud gave corporations the same legal standing as human citizens. Free enterprise, capitalism and democracy are in a fight for survival against mega-corporations with treasuries richer than many countries. Read this to prepare for the battle that’s sure to come. A refreshing, clear-eyed assessment of our highly flawed corporate culture, how it got that way and what we can do about it. A “must read” for any investor, student of business, corporate and political leader.
