Our Own Available Books

       One of the effects of losing Daniel is that we wish to advance information and awareness on things which were of interest or concern to him.  For someone twelves and a half, Daniel had many interests.  He believed in adoption for children who no longer had parents. He believed in homeschooling. He believed in proper care for animals.  He also believed in disaster preparedness.

         It is in this vein, that my first book has been written and released, entitled:

Rational Preparedness: A Primer to Preparedness
by Jane-Alexandra Krehbiel

The book is available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and worldwide from many other sellers.  You may also get a copy from:


It is also available electronically.

  Not just a book about loss and bereavement, but a book about love, joy, loss, courage, acceptance, faith and the world which follows this one.

    Where the blog provides a snapshot of thought and of feelings after Daniel's passing, the book tells about his life, his loss and our adaptation afterward.
                At long last, the book   "What I Learned from Daniel" is finally available.

   We are very early in its release and distribution process, but you may receive a copy using the following websites:  Hardcover,  softcover (perfect bound), and electronic versions will soon be available worldwide.

For now, this is where I noticed the book is being advertised:

Our latest book became available on November 10, 2016:

       This is my third book and first novel.

Portsoy Woods is the story of a young Northern Virginia intelligence analyst who convinces his wife that their young family and four small children, should relocate from the relative comforts and security of their suburban home to a large acreage tract in a very rural setting. This is a difficult decision for them to make initially as it takes them from friends, family, and from good jobs with negligible commutes.The decision to relocate is certainly, at first, counter-intuitive.

They relocate and find that even within their own state,a completely different rural culture, and to some degree, different values exist in comparison to those of the suburban world they knew. Their journey and adaptation, new friends and their learning is explored, as the economy and culture of the country is in decline. They also endured a continued deterioration of the United States, an economic collapse, some notable disasters including a national pandemic, personal losses, and uncertainties. The family learns not only to provide help to family and friends was but when to graciously receive it themselves.

Although this book will probably attract those who are interested in preparedness, pre-emptive relocation, and survivalism, this story of a family is about much more. Told from the perspective of the wife, a registered nurse, it also concerns the value of flexibility, resilience, hope, faith, loss, and charity for one's family, one's friends and for the community. It is also a hopeful look at today's families and of rural life. Anyone who has ever tested the boundaries of their comfort zone in any venue will appreciate this book.

 It can be purchased on Amazon and at:


It will be available worldwide soon.

  Thanks for looking !
