About the Author
Phil and Maude Mayes live in Santa Barbara, California, having started in London, England and New York City respectively. Phil is a software engineer and photographer. Maude works with adults with developmental disabilities and owns a business importing and selling antique European linens and laces. They are a happily married couple who have both had previous marriages and several long-term relationships. The striking difference between their marriage and previous relationships caused much reflection and discussion between them, and was the genesis of this book.

Most impressive to me is that this book is also an expression of the love which both of these authors demonstrate they have for others. They have graciously taken the time to beautifully document what they have discovered and they show a remarkable giving spirit going to the trouble to publish the tools (secrets, really) of their enlightenment. This book doesn't seem at all like an opportunistic venture, but more like a genuine act of generosity. To me that is an example of true kindness; being willing to teach what they know so that those struggling in the throes of incompatibility in relationships can have footprints to follow toward making their own lives sublime.
I learned about this book from an email sent to me by a friend who included a few brief excerpts. I was so intrigued by what it seemed to promise that I ordered it immediately, having it sent by expedited delivery. It met every one of my expectations and far more. I know this all sounds like gushing praise... but, it's true. I plan to order several more for holiday presents (I have friends who will appreciate this book as much as I do).
I'm a single gal; been single for over 12 years, so I am often intimidated by "relationship" self-help books. Yet as I began reading "SECRETS___", it clearly showed me it is THE RELATIONSHIP to myself that can be altered and softened, allowing peaceful exchanges with others to spontaneously occur.
Through the blogs and playful musings of Maude and Phil, I was able to see I too could have a more positive, receptive posture that invites relationship possibilities." HOORAY...for all that's hopeful in difficult times!!!
