How will she find people from her first life to assist her in jogging her memory? I have never heard of Faye Bird before, but I firmly believe that she is a young adult author that will soon be taking the spotlight amongst teenage novels. She has conjured a brilliant, fast, gripping plot that had me on the edge of my seat; being transported into the world of the book. I finished it within two sittings; so you can tell how great the book is. I cannot express enough how quickly I was flicking the pages, gasping with surprise at each chapter.
In the meantime, I worked with my mom in her interior design business, helping her with projects for her clients. We had so much fun working together, I almost thought about giving up the job I had accepted and staying to work with her. Instead, we loaded up a U-Haul and drove to Washington, D. C to move me into my new apartment, my first time living by myself.
The short version is that I passed out or almost passed out several times during my clinical work at St. I had a roommate getting her MBA and pursuing management consulting, and that career sounded fun and exciting.
Thus, I decided to go into health care consulting. At the Lewin Group, I had a title, a salary and benefits, and I was ecstatic, on top of the world. It was really fun being young and single in Washington, D. The owner of the Lewin Group took me under his wing and I started to travel and work on exciting strategic planning projects for large hospital systems. Before I knew it, I was living with him in Germany and working part-time at a child development center at Sembach Air Base.
I would love to go back to my year old self and have a good heart-to-heart. I spent a lot of time in the community and schools, working with teams of youth and adults. It was rewarding work. I did a lot of writing and public speaking, which I enjoyed.

I especially loved the strong relationships I developed through that position. I felt like I got to use a lot of my diverse skills and really make a difference in the community and individual lives. After about a year of living in Ohio, my first husband and I got married, and four of my five step-children came to live with us. I was They were and are lovely and loving, intelligent human beings. We went through some challenging circumstances, but we figured out how to build this new family together.
After I got my degree, I ended up teaching some classes in the Public Administration program, too. After we had been in Ohio for five years, my then-husband who had retired from the Air Force and was working as the CIO of a local hospital accepted a job at a hospital in Seattle.
We moved west.
I was ready for a change. My parents always loved good food and they entertained a lot. I would always help my Mom set beautiful tables or shape the tender crescent rolls. I would stand in the kitchen wanting to help, hovering over platters of leg of lamb, scalloped potatoes and broccoli casserole. It was the 80s.
Even in high school, I would host dinner parties at home or offer to cater events at school. I remember once making chicken cordon bleu and beaf bourguignon for about 75 people at a French Club party, transporting food from my own kitchen to school, highly questionable. So, I had always been passionate about food and nutrition and now I really wanted to change careers to follow that passion. I quit my job at Harborview and after a brief time as a sales rep for Chukar Cherries and a lot of research and some volunteering with other personal chefs started a personal chef business, batch-cooking meals for people in their homes and catering small events.
After about six months or so, I had built my business up to where I was busy half-time. I was having fun and finding success. But then I saw a posting for a short-term position in Development and Donor Relations for Seeds of Compassion, a five-day event in Seattle to foster compassion in the world.
It was a research-based, multi-generational event and it would be headlined by the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and other dignitaries, along with a concert by Dave Matthews. Something compelled me to apply. I got the job, not really realizing the extent of the full-time commitment I was making. I put my personal chef business on hold and worked almost around-the-clock for six months with an amazing team of people to help produce this event, an experience which changed my life.
It was not unusual for me and a team of volunteers to be up all night long working. Through my work on Seeds of Compassion, I was personally and professionally challenged on every level, had a private audience with the Dalai Lama, expanded my views on spirituality and religion and compassion, and developed incredibly rich relationships through this transformational experience.
So, we packed up and went back to Ohio. This was in in the midst of the economic crisis, and there were no jobs to be found. I did some catering, taught in-home cooking classes, did some home organizing and interior design projects, was a regular contributor to the local morning television news on lifestyle topics. That last one was really fun. I had met this couple that wanted to expand their wine shop into a wine bar, so I helped them.
I designed the interior, ordered all the furniture, designed a custom bar, set up the kitchen, developed a menu, hired the staff.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I was offered the chance to review My Second Life. I believe in reincarnation and the thought that you can be held responsible for something you did in a past life is definitely intriguing. It brings up so many questions: can someone who did good be allowed a pass if they commit a crime? Can someone who did something terrible ever be redeemed? Faye Bird tackles one of these questions with Ana, her main character.
Ana is a fifteen year old girl who has I wasn't sure what to expect when I was offered the chance to review My Second Life. Ana is a fifteen year old girl who has always known that she's lived a life before. From the moment she is born into her life as Ana, she has memories of her life as Emma, the girl she was previously.
For the most part these memories manifest as a longing for her first mother, which causes a lot of conflict with her current mother. This was illustrated in the book by the fact that as a reader I never really got the sense that we knew Ana's mother. She was in the book for brief periods of time, but her character was never really developed in my eyes. I think this was a good method because it gave me a similar sense of distance from her like what Ana must have felt.
