Review

Monarchs and Mendicants
Book Reviews by Kathy

Gifford Ulrich is reason enough to read this book. He is a man fighting his way through PTSD on his own terms:terms afforded him by taking the unpaid retreat and escape that homelessness provides. Ulrich needs healing, and as he struggles to heal himself, he learns the important lessons of how much that healing depends upon caring about others. His journey from mendicant to monarch in his own life gives readers a work of fiction they can get lost in and people in whose plights they cannot help but become emotionally entwined.

From the Author

My writing comes both innately and intentionally from what I believe.

I believe in the uniqueness of each person and that, if given the equality of opportunity, the individual is the best architect of his own destiny. I believe that societal problems are best remedied by small groups, preferably starting with the family; that government should protect people without getting in the way of their lives; that Americans are not guaranteed happiness, but the right to pursue it; that society is both a benefit and a burden that requires giving as well as receiving; that acceptance of cultural diversity includes acceptance of a diversity of opinions; that change is not automatically good; that displaying a devotion to country is a virtue; that individual differences can be served without sacrificing excellence. 

I believe deeply in love, loyalty, individualism, self-reliance, liberty, ambition, hard work, competition without trophies for everyone, and that action is a form of expression as well as words. If you share these beliefs, you might enjoy crawling into the pages of one of my books.

Why do I write? I write to escape and be entertained. I write to communicate and connect. I write to better understand the world and the human condition. I write to strengthen my hope.
