Finally made #1 on the NYT Best Sellers List for paperback non-fiction. Most major medical break-throughs are based on research using HELA cells or the immortal cells of Henrietta Lacks.

Bubblegum Betty is the true story of young Mennonite girl growing up during the Great Depression. Hear about her childhood adventures like cutting off just one of her braids, eating soap and walking in her sleep. Growing up with a large family and a special needs brother kept her life interesting.

Based on the true story of the Pendle Hill Witch burning in England in the early 1600's, before the Salem Witch Trials. It's a well-researched, well-written account of real people and the chain of perfectly understandable, logically coherent choices that led to their being accused of witchcraft...or Catholicism, these being conflated under James I's reign.
