Are you a published author in any format? Let us know the latest and where readers can fi nd you at Yolonda Bailey, 11A, published "Love Lessons," which includes several lessons that dissect what love is and why it is complicated. Keith Cook, 98GE, published a music book entitled "Sight Reading Violin Music." He worked as a professional musician for many years before returning to school to study education. Thomas Freese, 03GE, recently published "Halloween Sleepwalker" and "Eerie Encoun- ters in Everyday Life." J.R. Greenwell, 91E, 96GE, published his fi rst book, "Who the Hell is Rachel Wells?" The book is a collection of clever, big-hearted tales of spunky souls and damaged hearts. Cristin Harber, 03B, published her debut novel with Mill Creek Press, "Winters Heat." Cristin is an award-winning romance author and member of the Romance Writers of America. She resides in northern Virginia with her husband and toddler, and has a baby on the way. Mary Ann Leveck, 72A, 76MD, has written several children's books, including "The Lady and the Dragon," "Psychic Journeys" and the "Cassie and Mekore" book series. The American Bar Association recently published the second edition of "The Little Book of Golf Law" by John "Jack" Minan, 65B. Minan, former president of Lambda Chi Alpha and currently a professor of law at the University of San Diego, illus- trates the fi ner points of the intersection of golf rules and the law. Each chapter covers a separate topic — such as intellectual property, golf course design and property insurance — and a related case. Leslie Jo Moise, 85A, 90GA, recently wrote a novel, "Judith," which was published by Pearlsong Press in November 2013. In his book, "The One-Day Contract," Rick Pitino discusses approaches for overcom- ing life's hardships and attaining success through perseverance. By fi rst defi ning larger goals, one may establish smaller, more readily achieved objectives that provide guidance toward the ultimate goal. The narrow focus on less daunting tasks allows one to build con- fi dence and to generate momentum through each moment, each interaction, each day. Along the way, Pitino provides examples from his Hall of Fame basketball coaching career. T. Eric Schmall, 70A, recently published his second book, entitled "ShipShape: An Uncomplicated Guide to Navigating Your Nonprofi t." His fi rst book, "Striving for Excellence in the Nonprofi t Sector," was published in 2010. J. Stewart Williams, 54MU, 65MME, recently published his memoir, "Echoes: Remembering Friends, Places and Music in Europe and Asia, 1969-2005." It chronicles his 30 years as a director of choral music in American high schools in Italy, Germany and Turkey and features 23 pages of color pictures. Highlights include conducting a performance of Handel's "Messiah" at the dedication of a church in Naples, and attend- ing the funeral of Igor Stravinsky in Venice. Shawn Fields Williams, 79A, published a book, entitled "Belgravia Court: Old Louisville's Premier Walking Court," which is about Louisville's historic preservation movement and how it was launched on Belgravia Court in 1961.
