The Delaney Kids~ Bought and Paid For is the true story of a personal journey of discovery – the discovery of family, of a culture, and of self.

This is the heart rending tale of three siblings who were separated by a black market baby ring that, operating under state sanction as the Tennessee Children’s Home Society, stole and sold more than five thousand babies from impoverished families.

This is the heart warming tale of how these three siblings found each other after fifty years. This true story examines nature versus nurture, asks the big questions about the meaning of life and death, and explores what it means to turn Irish.

The Delaney Kids is essential reading for anyone interested in adoption, in Southern history, in the Irish experience in America, in existential discovery, and especially for anyone who has a heart.

Set primarily on Sanibel Island, but also the Southern U.S. and Western Europe, in 2023, The Last Best Resort examines the ├╝ber-rich as they strive to maintain the lifestyle to which they are accustomed, the military leaders and the administrators that scheme and maneuver within the new world order, and the everyday men and women who take life one day at a time.
