Building A Life You Love After Losing the Love of Your Life
In this anything-but-typical widow memoir, Myra takes a brutally honest look at her roller coaster ride through grief, and even in her darkest hours, her humor shines. While sobbing in her Ben & Jerry's, doing grief therapy with a professional, and railing at God, Myra realized that she wasn't married to a dead man and just waiting to join him. If you're a widow or widower or know someone who is, this book can be your saving grace. Just because there's tragedy in your life doesn't mean your life has to be a tragedy. Through her insights, warmth, and understanding, Myra demonstrates that you, too, can love life again.

Musings on Major and Minor Matters that May or May Not Matter
Perfect Paperback, 2011
Sometimes a poem seems to be the best way to capture the snapshot of a feeling. Whether it's an observation of life, happiness, grief, or simple silliness, Myra writes poetry to express her feelings. Many of the poems in this book were the result of a “poem du jour” challenge with her mentor and friend Russell G. Hood. She found that writing poetry was a fun, creative outlet and later discovered that when her heart was breaking after the death of her husband Phil, she could put the pain on the page. Myra's hope is that you have a laugh, relate to a feeling, or find a new insight from these musings.
