Book #13 – The Mars Women in Relationship Workbook


This workbook was designed for the successful career woman who wants a balanced romantic relationship that supports her dreams too. It is full of assessment and journaling questions to help the Mars woman reflect on her overall work-life balance, her relationship vision, her dating action plan or her existing relationship balance. It even includes a chore list, a Resource List and a couple’s vision document so that couples can break down the action steps they need to take to create a mutually supportive balanced relationship at work and at home.

I believe that this shift in balanced romantic relationships is the third wave of Feminism and it’s also ultimately the next important shift for humanity. Both men and women can benefit from integrating their archetypally feminine and masculine energies and roles. Men will become more comfortable and fluent in their relationships with their children and with domestic roles and women will continue to grow and leave their mark in the outer world, in their careers. Our children will learn that work and home spheres are not tied to gender roles and they too will grow up whole and will engage in more balanced and loving romantic partnerships themselves.

This workbook has 20 exercises and 3 main sections: An overall Life assessment, a Dating Assessment for single Mars women and a Long Term-Relationship/Marriage section for Mars women in relationships who are looking to create a new balance. No matter what your life stage this book should help you to create more inner and outer balance so that you have work and life success.

This workbook will take you on a personal journey to discover who you are and what you most want in your relationship. This manual will help you and your partner assess where you currently are and how to co-create the best balance for you both going forward.

My Best in Love,

Book #14- How to Use Your iPad as Your Life Coach


I’m a life coach and psychologist, so much of my day is spent helping people achieve their goals and dreams. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that an iPad could help with that. It had apps or tools that could easily structure people’s goals, but I hadn’t seen anyone use it that way. The iPad is a great “command central” from which a person can design a comprehensive plan for dieting, dating, and even financial success in many life areas. You can take your iPad most places, so it helps you to stay on task no matter how busy your lifestyle.

What follows are apps in 30 life areas to address your life goals and to take action to achieve them.

Book #18- My Bubby’s Journey Through the Holocaust!


Riva Nussenbaum was born in Khotin, Basserabia on November 9th, 1910. She had two sisters, two brothers and two parents and was the youngest child.

Her two brothers and sisters left for America when anti-semitism had begun to increase but Riva was only nine so she remained to take care of her mother, who was sick.

She married Avraham Wolkove when she was 28 years old and they celebrated the arrival of their first child a year later. She made a hope chest her new daughter. Little did she know, their future was not something she could plan or prepare for.

When Riva’s daughter turned one, the Iron guard descended on their little town without warning and told the townspeople to pack up their bags. They were all sent to a work camp, ‘ to help the government.’ The soldiers offered to put my mother (who was then only one year old) onto a carriage for the children but she walked with my Bubby instead.

It was 300 miles to a town called Murapha, 60 kilometers before Kiev. The work camp was called Transnistria. At night they slept on the fields and ate raw potatoes and carrots. Every day 3-5 people died from hunger. This difficult journey took them 6 months to complete.

At Murapha, they lived in an abandoned house with seventeen people. There was nothing to eat and every day the men were taken to work. The men worked on the fields and in return they were given some pea soup which they split three ways. Some days they lived only on water. They did not take a bath for three years and had head lice. They had to wash their clothes without soap and my Bubby loved to be clean, so this was hard for her. She imagined what it would be like to come home to a normal bed and home.

Find out how she survived this and more and lived on until 99 years old…and share in the wisdom and grace that she can offer us, today.

***"My Bubby's Journey Through the Holocaust" just won an Honorable Mention award in the Biography/Autobiography category of the Great Northwest Book Festival 2014

Riva Wolkove’s Interviews:

Below is the link to some clips of my Bubby at 86 years old telling her story. She died at 99, but this was the one time that she spoke of her experience on video. Hopefully it adds an element to the book to bring her Spirit and personality to life!

Book #19- To Be Noble


Noble is a 5-year old boy who wants to find out about his name. At night, his guardian angel Lucy takes him on an astral journey to consult the ascended Masters and sages about what it means to be noble.

This is a fun, informative, value-driven book that helps children to recognize their ability to do the right thing, be their own person, have compassion for others, and to follow their heart.

The author of this book wrote it her son Noble and his dad illustrated it. Their hope is that all children will enjoy this book but it may also be an extra special gift for the other 24,976 Nobles out there (this number is increasing by 206 Noble’s each year)!
